Kate Hudson enlists the help of partner Danny Fujikawa’s mom to babysit daughter Rani… in order to slip in a quick workout
She’s a wife and mother of three, Oscar-nominated actress, author and fashion entrepreneur.
So it makes perfect sense that Kate Hudson would need to rely on family and friends to be able to slip in a quick workout at home.
And on Sunday, partner Danny Fujikawa’s mom, Melissa Linehan, was able to step in and baby sit her two-year-old granddaughter Rani Rose while she got in ‘self care’ that included reps of stretching with hand weights.

It takes a village: Kate Hudson got in a quick home workout when Grandma MuuMuu stepped in to baby sit daughter Rani Rose, two, on Sunday
The Almost Famous actress, who turns 42 on Monday, April 19, posted video of her impromptu workout on Instagram.
In the background, Grandma MuuMuu can be seen giving her undivided attention to Nani as she investigates various exercise equipment.
‘Thank God for Grandma (MuuMuu) or I’d never get this in,’ Hudson wrote across one of the first clips.
As she continued her routine she added, ‘Start them young knowing what’s gooooood,’ at the top of the following clip, which showed Rani interrupting her mother on more than one instance

Earlier Sunday morning, mother and daughter were enjoying some ‘Sunday snuggles’ in bed when Rani began to roll off the alphabet in perfect form — to the delight of her proud mama, who fist pumped into the air.
Their ‘Sunday snuggles’ did come with a stipulation that Hudson keep quiet while she delivers letter after letter in a smooth rhythm.
‘We’re in the “don’t sing mom” phase,’ Hudson wrote of Rani, in her message to her 13.1 million fans and followers.

Husdon began dating Rani’s father, Danny Fujikawa, in 2016 after they had known each other for about 15 years.
They would go on to welcome Rani to Planet Earth on October 2, 2018 after announcing her pregnancy with Rani in April 2018.
Kate is also the mom of Ryder Robinson, 15, her son with Black Crowes frontman/ex-husband Chris Robinson, and Bingham Hawn Bellamy, seven, her son with Muse rocker Matt Bellamy.
