Hudson, 39, announced she was expecting a daughter with Fujikawa in a gender reveal Instagram video in April.

"SURPRISE!!!" she captioned the post, revealing she had been absent from social media because she was struggling with her pregnancy.

"If you've wondered why I've been so absent on my social channels it's because I have never been more sick!" she wrote. "It was the most sick first trimester of all my children."

"We have been trying to keep this pregnancy under the radar for as long as possible but I’m a poppin now," she added. "And it’s too darn challenging to hide, and frankly hiding is more exhausting then just coming out with it! My kids, Danny, myself and the entire family are crazy excited! A little girl on the way."

The Almost Famous star's new baby is her third child but her first daughter - she is already mum to sons Ryder, 14, and Bingham, six.
