Kate Hudson and Alex Rodriguez are serious about making a life together — and according to a pal, the smitten New York Yankees slugger is ready to make the Bride Wars star his wife, even getting mom Goldie Hawn involved. “Alex called Goldie and asked if she and [her partner] Kurt Russell would give their blessing to his asking Kate to marry him,” the pal tells OK!.

“Alex is planning on doing it around New Year’s. Usually Kate goes away with her family to Aspen, and Alex thought it would be romantic to do it front of a fireplace while snow was falling outside.”

Already acting like a married cuople, A-Rod and Kate brought Ryder, her 5-year-old son with rocker ex-husband Chris Robinson, along to look at luxury properties in NYC’s trendy Greenwich Village, SoHo and TriBeCa neighborhoods. The previous week, Kate played mom to Natasha, 4, and Ella, 17 months, A-Rod’s daughters with his ex-wife Cynthia, as the pair toured six-bedroom homes on the West Coast, where the couple plans to reside during his off season.

Although Kate’s rep claims persistent rumors that the blonde beauty is already engaged and pregnant are “absolutely not true,” friends still worry that the headstrong actress is moving way too quickly.

“She did it with Chris, Owen Wilson and now Alex,” notes another insider. “[Kate’s] a hopeless romantic. She always jumps in head first and ignores all the red flags.”
