Hudson, who has a two sons that are 4 and 12, said she thinks of herself as a “wild mom.”

“I was really young, like 23, when I had Ryder,” she said. “So, our relationship has always been [a little unusual]. I mean, we’re close, and I am his mom. I’m big on manners. I’m big on politeness. I’m big on gratitude. But I’m a bit of a wild mom.” (RELATED: Kate Hudson Reveals Whether She’s Dating 23-Year-Old Nick Jonas)

She said there are times when she would rather watch reality TV than help them do their homework.

“I help my kids with their homework,” she continued. “But I also get bored doing it. I will sit and listen to my children pontificate and discuss their ideas till the day is long because it warms my heart, but I really don’t want to do math! I’m gonna say it: I’d prefer to watch ‘The Bachelor’ rather than do fractions and divisions.”

She said she enjoys being on the road for her book tour because it gives her a break from parenting.

“I’m so happy to have some time to myself and excited to have this experience.” (RELATED: Kate Hudson Flaunts Her Body In Insanely Revealing Gown)
