Hudson, 43, was married to Robinson, 55, for more than five years before they separated in 2006.
Kate Hudson had a rare reunion with her ex-husband, Chris Robinson, for their first born's graduation from high school: 18-year-old Ryder Robinson. Kate Hudson shared a pair of photos to Instagram on Thursday night to mark her oldest child's academic milestone. In the first picture, Ryder is wearing his cap and gown and he has his arm around his proud mother. Also in the photo are Bingham "Bing" Hawn, 10, and Rani Rose,3. The Almost Famous actress shares son Bing with ex-fiancé Matt Bellamy, and daughter Rani with fiancé Danny Fujikawa. In the second, a proud-looking Hudson, 43, reunited with Ryder's dad Chris Robinson, 55 in a rare picture. The former pair stood on either side of the new graduate as he held his diploma.
The How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days star captioned the images, writing: Today was a big day for our family. A day you talk about about when your kids are little and say things like “hey, one day it will be 2022 and you’ll graduate from high school!” As if that day is so far it is barely reachable. And then here we are! @mr.ryderrobinson you are the most incredible young man. Raising you has been one of the great gifts and pleasures of my life. You bring so much to everyone’s life. You are kind, loving, generous, patient, hilarious and one of a kind. I am so excited for this next chapter. Way to go baby! Ma loves you! AND!!! To all the parents out there feeling the same thing I am today! CONGRATS! Letting your babies fly ain’t easy but fly kiddos fly!
Hudson and Robinson were married from 2000 to 2007 and Ryder is their only child together. In 2019, the actress admitted divorce was a difficult process. She spoke about co-parenting with the three fathers of her children on the podcast Divorce Sucks! with Laura Wasser saying, "As much as I would say I don't recommend it to most, my situation is quite amazing." She confessed that communication, self-sufficiency and always putting the kids first helps when it comes to co-parenting. "When you get divorced, you're still in a relationship," Hudson said. "It's just a different kind of relationship." You're going to have good days, you're going to have bad days, you're going to have good weeks, bad weeks."
The Fabletics co-founder also dropped by the Rachael Ray show revealing that she wasn't necessarily in a rush for her three kids to grow up but she doesn't mind the pace either. "People kind of go, 'I want to freeze them when they're little.' I'm like, 'I don't,' actually. I'm having a blast. I can't wait to go to a bar with my kid — is that weird? He's so much fun!" said Hudson of Ryder. "He's almost 6 feet. I used to dream about that day, like, 'One day, honey, I'm going to be looking up to you,' " she continued. "And the other day, he gave me a hug and I almost burst into tears. It's crazy, it's amazing, it's beautiful."
