Nine months ago, Kate Hudson met British guitarist Matthew Bellamy, frontman for the rock group Muse, at California’s Coachella Music Festival.
“She was completely smitten with him,” a family friend tells OK!.
Now, after a whirlwind of romance, Kate is three months pregnant with Matt’s child – his first and her second (she has a son Ryder, 7, with ex-husband Chris Robinson.) And while the pregnancy was unplanned, the couple is thrilled.
“They’re in that super-excited new-parent phase,” a long-time pal tells OK!.
For Kate, however, the joy is tempered with pain: Rumors are flying around Hollywood that her long-estranged biological father, Bill Hudson, is shopping a tell-all that paints their family in a negative light.
Still, friends say Kate is focusing on what’s important: Matthew and preparing for motherhood. “She tries to wave off drama and negative energy,” says a source. She thinks it’s bad for the baby.”
Meanwhile, Matthew is throwing himself full throttle into fatherhood.
