Kate Hudson: My Son Is "Very Protective of Me"

The pregnant actress says 7-year-old Ryder has been warning her against driving and eating spicy foods: "It's pretty cute"

Kate Hudson recently gushed about all the things that made her fall in love with current beau Matt Bellamy, but the Muse rocker (and daddy to Kate's unborn baby) still isn't the actress' main man.

That title belongs to her 7-year-old son, Ryder. The pregnant actress says that her little man (who she had with ex Chris Robinson) is practicing being a big brother to the new baby, by taking some extra care of her.

"He's very protective, Ryder is," she told reporters at a press event for Something Borrowed. "I put spicy stuff on my food and he goes, 'Mom, don't eat that.' I said, 'What?' He said, 'Don't eat that.' This was last night. He said, 'The baby might not like spicy.' I was like, 'What's going on?' All of a sudden he doesn't want me to drive a car. 'You shouldn't be driving.' I can't get up on anything high. Like I got up on the thing to get his ball out and he went, 'Just get down.' He's very protective. It's pretty cute."

Though she's been an expectant mom before, Hudson, 31, says that this experience is nothing like her first. 

"This is a totally different pregnancy, completely," Hudson explained. "It couldn't be more opposite." And, while she wouldn't reveal her actual due date, the actress admitted to be due "sooner than later." But one thing is for sure: You won't see her pushing a double stroller this summer. 

Hudson promises, "It's not going to be twins!"
