The Golden Globe winner became an aunt in 2007 when her and Russell’s brother, Oliver Hudson, welcomed Wilder, 13, followed by Bodhi, 10, and Rio, 7, in 2010 and 2013, respectively.

Oliver, 44, is a “cool uncle,” he exclusively told Us Weekly in November 2018. “I let my kids watch movies that I probably shouldn’t, so when Kate’s kids come to my house, I’m sure they’re pretty excited because I let them watch things that Kate will not let them watch. Worth the risk. You need an uncle that’s gonna let them do things. That’s the point!”
