Kate Hudson and Alex Rodriguez Heat Up
As A-Rod gears up for the most important games of his life, his movie star girlfriend has a game plan of her own — to create one big happy family with his kids and hers.
All the important action will be happening on the field during the first game of the World Series this week, when the Yankees take on the Phillies, but it’s a safe bet to say a lot of spectators will also be watching the player’s box, where Alex Rodriguez’s lady love, Kate Hudson, is expected to put in an appearance.
While the Yankee wives have been less than welcoming to the Oscar nominee, Kate, who began dating A-Rod earlier this year, is thrilled that her boyfriend is getting to live out the dream he’s had since he was 5 years old, and she already has her role as cheerleading girlfriend down pat.
“Kate is very supportive and win or lose, she makes sure Alex knows she loves him anyway,” an insider tells BettyConfidential. The couple recently moved into a place in Purchase, just north of Manhattan, although A-Rod has kept his New York bachelor pad and Kate has a place in L.A. “She is careful to let him focus on the games while she takes care of the houses and travels back and forth. They are so happy living in their quiet neighborhood on Purchase Street.”
The pal says Kate and A-Rod are testing the waters by sharing a home together. “They are seriously in the honeymoon stages. Kate definitely sees marriage as a possibility and she sees Alex in her life long-term. They are in love but Kate doesn’t want to put any pressure on Alex, especially during baseball season. She has plenty to keep her busy and they have a good balance right now.”
Kate is taking a cue from her mom, Goldie Hawn, and has made an effort to get to know Alex’s two children, Natasha and Ella, who live with his ex-wife, Cynthia. “Kate pushed for their children to meet up early in the relationship, so his two daughters and her son, Ryder, would be able to play and hang out together. The girls spend most of their time with his ex-wife, but when they are all together as a family, it’s just like Kate’s childhood with Goldie and Kurt Russell. She loves the big blended family!”
