Actress Kate Hudson said in a recent interview that she will raise her baby daughter to be “genderless.”

"We still don't know what she's going to identify as,” Hudson said in an interview with AOL, ABC News also reported.

Hudson gave birth to her newborn daughter, Rani Rose, last October. She is also the mother of two boys, ages 14 and 17.


When pressed during the interview about whether raising her new daughter was different from raising her two boys, Hudson said “it doesn’t really change my approach, but there’s definitely a difference."

"I think you just raise your kids individually regardless - like a genderless [approach]," she continued. 

"I will say that, right now, she is incredibly feminine in her energy, her sounds and her way,” Hudson went on to say. “It’s very different from the boys, and it’s really fun to actually want to buy kids’ clothes.”

Though Hudson added that she and her boyfriend Danny Fujikawa, the father of Rani, are not sure what gender she will identify as in the future, Hudson said “right now, she is incredibly feminine in her energy, her sounds and her way.”

Hudson’s interview comes as a number of states – including California, Washington, and Oregon – have ushered in legislation that provides those who do not identify as either male or female to choose a third category for their birth certificates.
