The reason Kate Hudson calls Steven Tyler 'Papa'

Don’t be surprised if Kate Hudson‘s baby girl is born with an affinity for Aerosmith.

The actress shared a photo Monday of the band’s lead singer, Steven Tyler — whom she referred to as “Papa Tyler” — hugging her baby bump over the weekend.


Hudson, 38, and Tyler, 70, clearly continue to cross paths, years after she and Steven’s eldest daughter, actress Liv Tyler, met while attending high school at Crossroads School in Santa Monica, Calif., in the ’90s.

The women went on to co-star in 2000’s Dr. T & the Women and remained close afterward. They both welcomed their first children in 2004. (Hudson gave birth to her second son, Bingham, in 2011. She announced April 6 that she’s expecting a daughter with musician Danny Fujikawa.)

Interestingly, Hudson has a connection to Liv’s mom, Bebe Buell, because the role of Penny Lane in Almost Famous — for which Kate won an Oscar — was based, in part, on Bebe.)

And she’s been photographed with Liv’s dad in the past.

She and the rocker were happy to be seated next to each other during a plane ride in 2016. Hudson referred to him as “Papa Steven” then.


Think Liv calls Kurt Russell “Papa Kurt”?
