Kate Hudson explains her 'genderless' approach to raising daughter Rani Rose

Kate Hudson doesn't want to put any labels on her daughter before she figures out who she is on her own.

The actress, who welcomed her first daughter, Rani Rose, with partner Danny Fujikawa in October, recently opened up to AOL's Gibson Johns about motherhood and explained that, while there's "definitely a difference" between raising boys and girls, she's trying not to make any assumptions over how Rani (pronounced Ronnie) will identify.

"I think you just raise your kids individually regardless [of their sex] -- like a genderless [approach]," Hudson explained. "We still don’t know what she’s going to identify as."

That being said, the WW ambassador went on to add that her first daughter (she is also mother to sons Ryder, 15, and Bingham, 7) is "incredibly feminine in her energy, her sounds and her way."

It's unclear if Hudson will welcome anymore children but, as it stands, Rani will grow up as the lone sister with two brothers, which is something that her mother can relate to. Hudson, 39, grew up with brothers, Oliver, 42, Boston, 38, and Wyatt, 32, which not only made her a tomboy by nature, but it also give her a thick skin.

"I was a tomboy in a spinning dress," she said with a laugh. "My middle brother, [Boston,] who is closest to me in age, was basically my sister because I put makeup on him all the time, and I’d dress him up and he loved it. But growing up as a girl with all boys, you end up with a thick skin. You really do. People say, 'Oh, your brothers must’ve really protected you.' And I’m like, 'They threw me right into the fire!'"
