Goldie Hawn Reveals She Changed Daughter Kate's Name After She Kicked Her in Utero: 'She Was Tough'

Goldie Hawn says she always knew her daughter, Kate Hudson, could handle anything.

When she was in labor with Hudson in 1979, Hawn recalls being in the car on the way to the hospital. “She kicked me so hard in my vagina that I changed her name right on the spot because she was tough,” the actress, 74, tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “I had named her Rebecca and on the 405 [freeway] I went, ‘This is a Kate.'”

When she gave birth to Rani in October 2018, “I was right there,” says Hawn, laughing. “I was a little bit close.”

Adds Hudson: “Every part of that birth was just so beautiful.”
