(Newser) – Kate Hudson is a mother for the third time, and this time it's a girl. The 39-year-old actress announced "she's here" in an Instagram post, referring to little Rani Rose, reports USA Today. It's the first child for Hudson with partner Danny Fujikawa, though Hudson has a 14-year-old son with ex-husband Chris Robinson and a 6-year-old son with ex-fiance Matthew Bellamy. The newborn's unusual first name is pronounced "Ronnie," per US Weekly, and Hudson explains that it's in honor of the child's grandfather, Ron Fujikawa. "Ron was the most special man who we all miss dearly," writes the actress. "To name her after him is an honor." (While Hudson is close to her famous mom, Goldie Hawn, she is estranged from her father.)
