Kate Hudson admits to ‘starting crying’ when she thinks of her son Ryder, 18, at college.

“I’m very optimistic about his future.” “All I can ask for is to see my kids thrive and feel good in their skin,” Kate Hudson says of her 18-year-old son Ryder.

Kate Hudson is missing her oldest child, who is away at college for the first time.

The actress, 43, recently spoke about her feelings since her son Ryder, 18, departed for college.

“It’s difficult even to talk about,” she said. “I’ll have a moment where I just start crying because it will dawn on me that he isn’t here.”
