Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell were arguably Hollywood's most iconic "it" couple, and now her kids are opening up about what it was like when their families merged.
In the first episode of their new podcast, Sibling Revelry, Kate and Oliver Hudson reflected on the "unstable" dynamics of their childhood including their first introduction to Russell when they were 3 and 6 years old, respectively. (Their father is Hawn's ex Bill Hudson.)
After glossing over how Hawn and Russell started dating (on the set of "Swing Shift"), Oliver asked his sister to go back to that time because "there's a really beautiful story ... about when Pa and Ma went on their first date and saw us sleeping."
"It was the first time she brought him to the house, it wasn't the first date," she clarified before delving into the story. "Mom said that's when she fell in love with Kurt –right away was because she brought him back to the house and we had already been asleep, and we shared a room... and he sat down next to each of us, he sat down next to you first and watched you sleep and then came by."
Kate mentioned Russell, who has been by her mother's side since '83, watched her sleep longer than he watched Oliver because she was "younger and probably cuter," but Oliver joked that he only did that in order to "get in mom's pants ... so there's that aspect, so it's like let's go to the daughter a little longer because there's that mother-daughter relationship."
The 40-year-old actress recalled it was that moment that her mom knew how important family values were to Russell. The "Almost Famous" star also remembered the first time she met Russell's son, Boston.
"I remember the first time I ever saw Boston," she said. "It was the first time I remember Kurt talking about his son and I remember it was almost like, for me, it felt like such a big moment. It was like 'My mom is obviously madly in love with this guy,' and for me at the time it's like 'Is this going to be my dad?' and I was meeting his son which meant ... does this mean this is my brother?'"
She added that it "was a lot to handle at such a young age."
Oliver, who's about three years older than Kate, was surprised that she was able to have so many "feelings and connections" at such a young age, meanwhile he doesn't remember much.
"I was like floating in space somewhere," Oliver said. "I had none of these feelings."
