Kate Hudson and Matt Bellamy are reportedly engaged

Today it was revealed that British rocker Matt Bellamy and American actress Kate Hudson are engaged.

As reported by Holymoly.com, the couple have recently revealed that they are expecting their first child.

They celebrated the news with family in London, which suggests that their choice of wedding reception venue could be one in the capital.

A source spoke to The Sun about the party celebrating the engagement: “It was an intimate party. They kept their engagement secret as they wanted to celebrate with their nearest and dearest before it became public knowledge.”

The Press Association reports that Miss Hudson already has a seven-year-old son with ex-husband Chris Robinson, and the couple have been together for nine months.

Her mother Goldie Hawn shared her delight at news Miss Hudson was pregnant. She said: “I’m excited! It’s exciting. We’re just all very happy… happy for them both. What’s more to say?”

The pregnancy is described as a “happy accident”.

Mrs Hawn’s partner Kurt Russell told People Magazine that he was hoping this time she’ll have a baby girl. “It’s fun having babies once again,” he said. “We just really like that. And it’s fun to watch them grow. It’s fun to see what they’re grasping. I think secretly we’re all hoping for a girl.”
