Kate Hudson’s Sweet Anniversary Note to BF Danny Fujikawa Reveals Their Long History

Kate Hudson and boyfriend Danny Fujikawa celebrated a year of dating this weekend, but it turns out that their love story goes back way further than that. The actress revealed in a sweet first-date anniversary note that they actually met 15 years ago, when she was very pregnant with her oldest son, Ryder.


“The first time I met Danny I was 23 and enormously pregnant with Ryder,” she wrote on Instagram. “His step sisters are my best friends @sarafoster @erinfoster, and so it goes we have been in the same circle for over a decade!” The note accompanied a photo of the pair sharing a kiss on a bridge — the same spot where they had their first unofficial date one year prior.

“A year ago today Danny took me on a hike, and what I thought was just a hike with a family friend turned very quickly into an unexpected first date,” she shared. “No moves were made on this first date. In fact, it took months for him to make a first move! And as a kiss on this bridge would have been nice, the kiss a year later was so much sweeter.”

“So on our 15th year of knowing each other we were able to open our hearts to each other to feel so much pure love and it’s been truly incredible!” Hudson concluded her note. “Happy first date anniversary baby. #LoveThisMan#WhatAYear.”

Hudson shares her son Ryder, now 13, with ex-husband Chris Robinson, and another son, Bingham, 6, with ex-fiancé Matt Bellamy (of the band Muse). In May, she took her relationship with Fujikawa public when the pair walked the red carpet at the premiere of her mother Goldie Hawn’s movie Snatched.

Hudson is supportive of her mother’s career, and also holds Hawn’s long-running relationship with Kurt Russell in high regard. “Love you madly, deeply, profoundly,” Hudson said of the couple, who celebrated their 34th anniversary in March — right around the time rumors of Hudson and Fujikawa’s own blossoming relationship started to surface.

It’s safe to say Hudson has a good role model to look up to in love. Happy anniversary, Danny and Kate!
