Kate Hudson has been known to always be in a relationship, as she's had quite a few boyfriends and baby daddies.

However, she noted she took time to herself — specifically one year without men — to regroup.

“It was great,” the actress, 45, said of on the "Call Her Daddy" podcast, which released on Wednesday, May 22, of spending time alone. “I was at that place where I was like, ‘I don’t want to keep repeating any patterns anymore.’”

These days, the singer is enjoying time with her brood and Fujikawa, whom she's been engaged to since September 2021.

“His values are very sturdy, and he’s such a lovely person,” Hudson said. “I would have never, I think, allowed that in if I didn’t take those three years of just being so happy in my life alone.”

Overall, Hudson is grateful for her relationships and what they've taught her.

“I look back at my entire life at this point and I’m like, ‘I actually feel like I might have gotten it right,’” she shared.

“For me, having the means and the ability to choose to be more healthy in relationships means that it’s been easier for me to exit unhealthy relationships,” she added. “Just because you’re not supposed to be with someone doesn’t mean that you can’t create a big beautiful experience."
