Kate Hudson is "really excited" to give birth to her first daughter.
The 39-year-old actress is expecting a baby girl with her boyfriend Danny Fujikawa, and after already being mother to two boys from previous relationships - Ryder, 14, and Bingham, six - she is said to be over the moon at the prospect of finally having a daughter.
Recalling the day he found out the happy news, her brother Wyatt Russell told People magazine: "I was happy. I was teary-eyed because I know how badly she wanted a girl. I know Danny, I'm sure in some part of every man's brain you're like, 'I'd love to have a little me.' But when he met my brother's little girl Rio [Hudson], who's the cutest thing in the entire world, she made him be like, 'Okay, I want a girl.' So they're really excited."
It comes after Kate's good friend Erin Foster also revealed that the Bride Wars star was desperate for a daughter, and was overjoyed when her gender reveal party saw her showered in pink confetti.
She said: "[Kate] wanted a girl so badly and they really didn't know until they popped the balloons and pink came out, so it was really exciting. I don't know if you saw Sara [Foster, Erin's sister] jumping on top of Kate like a psychopath but we were just so excited about her having a girl."
