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!

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
