Washington [US], January 11 (ANI): American actor Kate Hudson spoke on an episode of the 'Sibling Revelry' podcast and revealed that she's been rethinking letting her dad and his children into her life in the year 2021.

According to Fox News, the 41-year-old actor has been estranged from her father, Bill Hudson, for several years. Bill was married to Kate's mother, Goldie Hawn, but they divorced in the early 1980s after several years of marriage. Bill went on to have two children with his new wife, Cindy Williams, as well as a third daughter named Lalania.

According to People Magazine, the duo was discussing New Year's resolutions, prompting Kate to note that, although she doesn't have a specific resolution, she's been rethinking her family connections.

"You know what I've been thinking about lately? Dad," Kate shared.

"I've been thinking about our sisters that we don't spend any time with and our brother -- brothers. We've got four siblings we don't spend any time with," she said, in an apparent reference that includes Bill Hudson's three children and Wyatt, the son of Kurt Russell, longtime love of Kate's mom.

As reported by Fox News, the 'Bride Wars' star noted that her siblings are getting older and that she would now welcome having a little contact with them in her life.

"I was thinking about how everybody's getting older," she continued.

"It would be nice to connect a little bit, especially with my sisters."

She added: "We've been talking so much about sibling relationships and distraught relationships or good relations - and we're sitting here like we have the best family, we're so great and yet we don't ever acknowledge the fact that we have four other siblings. Four."

"So I've been thinking about the Hudsons. Thinking it's important that we reach out with all of our siblings and maybe connect with them a little bit."

In 2016, the actor told Howard Stern that she's forgiven her father for walking out on her mother, who later moved on to date Russell.

"I really do recognize whatever those issues are, it's just something that he has to live with, and that must be painful for him. So I forgive him," she told the radio show host at the time. (ANI)
