She's a magnetic actress, a mother, a British rocker's love, and, with this month's launch of her Chrome Hearts Collaboration CH + KH, a jewelry designer. Kate Hudson models her gems in ELLE's September issue.
CH+KH aquamarine ring with diamond baguettes
On creating the jewelry line CH+KH, with friend Laurie Lynn Stark (co-owner of LA-based brand Chrome Hearts):
"It occurred to us, we spend all of this time together-why don't we make something?"
On the collection's pearl-and-gold seashell necklace that was inspired by a choker her mother, Goldie Hawn, gave her on her twenty-first birthday:
"It was one of the first pieces I ever remember my mother wearing…and it was like, Wow, I hope one day I get to wear jewelry like that."
On why she opted not to know the sex of her baby:
"The experience is so crazy I don't think it matters either way"

Tips for Blond Highlights from Kate Hudson's Colorist
On why she and Bellamy have yet to make wedding plans:
"One thing at a time. We'll say hello to our new one and enjoy that for a while"
On traveling and dividing her time between California and Bellamy's home in London:
"Most relationships I've had in my life have been with people who travel quite a bit for work. I don't know if I'm attracted to that specifically, but it is nice to be with somebody who understands having to be on the move."
On turning to her mom, Goldie Hawn, for guidance:
"We've definitely had lots of talks about parenting and being a working mom. She never hands out unsolicited preachy words of wisdom, though. My parents allowed my brother and I to have our freedom and be ourselves and feel confident in our choices and to make mistakes without too much judgment. I hope that I can do as good a job."
