After much speculation in the press on Wednesday, Kate Hudson has said that she is expecting a baby with rocker Matt Bellamy.
A spokesperson for the 31-year-old actress, who has a seven-year-old son, Ryder, with ex-husband Chris Robinson, confirmed the news.
"They couldn't be more excited," a source told People magazine. "Kate is really happy.
"She was always excited to have kids again at some point."
Kate and Muse frontman Matt, 32, have been dating for around nine months after meeting at the Coachella music festival in April last year.
They have been virtually inseparable since then – Kate introduced the musician to mum Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell just three months into the relationship.
