Sixteen is a big age... especially for parent.
Kate Hudson had a sentimental moment when she shared heartfelt words on Instagram to celebrating her son Ryder reaching the milestone.
The actress celebrated her son's 16th birthday with a sweet tribute post. Hudson posted a throwback home video of Ryder on his second birthday. She also wrote an adorable message to her eldest child.
“I didn’t realize it would be here so fast!” she began her caption of the post. “16 years today. 16. I will savor these next couple of years before he flies the nest.”
“People sometimes get sad on days like this. Time creeps up on us and rocks us a bit, reminding us that the years don’t wait for us to be ready. Well, RYDER IF YOUR READING! I’M READY!!!” she continued.
Hudson then shared how excited she was about her son’s growth and bright future.
“I’m excited for your future. An amazing young man you are,” she wrote. “I am honored that you chose me to be your mother.”
The star ended her message with a joke, “And here’s the thing…you still have two years under this roof. My roof, my rules 😉 Happy Birthday baby @mr.ryderrobinson.”
After the holiday, Hudson took to her Instagram Story to loop fans in on her holiday weight gain.
“Got on the scale … I wasn’t impressed,” Hudson said in the video.
Instead of being discouraged by the additional 10 pounds on the scale, the actress admitted she’s motivated to achieve her fitness goals in the new year.
“But that’s okay, because I know how to do this,” the Weight Watchers ambassador said.
The "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days" star has been vocal about her fitness journey and fluctuating weight after joining the team in December 2018.
