|Kate Hudson was 'shocked' to find out she was pregnant|
The 33-year-old actress met the Muse rocker at the Coachella music festival in 2010 and they enjoyed an "old-fashioned romance" before she discovered she was expecting his baby, but she was thrilled at the way he supported her on hearing the news.
She recalled: "It was all very old-fashioned and proper, and we went on lovely dates.
"And two months later I was pregnant ... Well, yes [I was shocked], but I also thought, 'This is going to be interesting.'
"I knew it would take a strong man to deal with it. You know that with a relationship things can go either way when you have a child.
"When you get pregnant everything changes: you, your body. Everything becomes a big decision. But he was there and that was that."
Though the couple - who raise 21-month-old son Bingham and nine-year-old Ryder, Kate's son with ex-husband Chris Robinson, together - are engaged, they still have made no definite plans to marry but will do eventually because it is important to the boys.
Kate told the May edition of Britain's ELLE magazine: "We will get married. I do think it's important, but we have no plans.
"[Ryder] wants a party. For me it's not the legal part that is important, it's what it means to the family."
The 'Fool's Gold' actress says her sons are her main focus and the family loves nothing more than spending time in their garden.
She said: "I'm a lot less a rock chick and a lot more about being a good mother, a good partner. I'm part of a family. That's how we were brought up, how I bring my kids up. They are very blessed to live how they do, but they are aware of that.
"We have a vegetable plot, a herb garden, the boys pull out carrots and collect eggs from the hens, that's the sort of day that makes me really happy."
