Who is Bingham Hawn Bellamy?
Bingham Hawn Bellamy is the son of British singer, guitarist, pianist, and songwriter Matt Bellamy of the band ‘Muse’ and American actor Kate Hudson. Bingham’s parents never got married to each other. His parents began their relationship in 2010 and got engaged the following year. Bingham was a little over 3 years old when his parents broke up. He has an older stepbrother, born to his mother and her first husband. Bingham’s name was revealed to the public 4 days after his birth. His middle name honors his grandmother, 'Academy'- and 'Golden Globe'-winning actor Goldie Hawn. Although his parents are now separated, they are still on good terms. Bingham often visits his father, who is now engaged to model Elle Evans. Bingham’s mother is currently in a relationship with musician Danny Fujikawa and has a daughter with him, too.
Bingham’s parents began dating after she divorced her first husband. Kate was earlier married to 'The Black Crowes' singer Christopher Mark Robinson. They got married on December 31, 2000, and had a son a few years later. Kate’s publicist announced their separation on August 14, 2006. Their divorce was filed on November 18, 2006, due to “irreconcilable differences.” The divorce was finalized on October 22, 2007. Kate was granted joint custody of their son.
Kate and Matt began dating in 2010. In January 2011, rumors of Kate’s pregnancy with Matt’s child started surfacing. The news was confirmed on January 13 by Kate's representative. When Kate was in her first trimester, she revealed that the pregnancy was unplanned, but they were still excited to welcome the baby. She also revealed that she had been suffering from terrible morning sickness. In April 2011, when Kate was 7 months pregnant, she was photographed with her baby bump. Around the same time, she announced her engagement to Matt on 'The Today Show.' However, she did not say anything about their marriage plans. Throughout her pregnancy, the actor faced the camera boldly and never attempted to conceal her bump. She once sported a gorgeous black maternity gown and nude 'Christian Louboutin' peep-toe heels to a red carpet event.
Kate and Matt initially revealed they were having a baby girl. They had found out about the baby’s supposed gender after the old-school gender-detection method called the pendulum test. They had decided to deliver the child in Los Angeles so that the newborn could avail both US and UK citizenships. The couple had planned to live in both countries and travel between them when required.
