The brief affair between Dax Shepard and Kate Hudson in 2007 is frequently forgotten. The actors had relationships with other well-known celebrities prior to their time together. She didn't confront the rumoured relationship with Owen Wilson, Hudson's co-star in "You, Me and Dupree," until 15 years later. The actor ironically verified the story when appearing on "The Drew Barrymore Show." As they talked about their past relationships, Hudson said Barrymore, "I've been there with a Wilson too." Shepard, meantime, had recently ended a handful of his own relationships. After his relationship with Briegh Morrison, the "Buddy Games" star allegedly had a brief flirtation with Olympic figure skater Tara Lipinski.
Shepard's romance with Hudson coincidentally began just a few months before he started seeing his wife, Kristen Bell. Bell had previously disclosed to POPSUGAR that Shepard was "still dating other people" when the couple broke up. A short while after, they got back in touch, and they've been dating since since. It's interesting to note that Shepard and Hudson appear to have remained friends. The performers eventually disclosed the reason for their separation after spending years apart.
In a 2019 episode of Dax Shepard's podcast "Armchair Expert," he and Kate Hudson sat down to talk about their relationship. The pair began by discussing how their relationship began. They initially connected at Tobey Maguire's residence, but both of them were already involved in other relationships at the time. A year later, Shepard and Hudson reconnected, but their union was brief. According to E! News, Hudson continued by acknowledging that the performers were at "different" stages of their lives.
I frequently felt extremely "less than" with you, Shepard continued. "I believe I had reached the point where I would no longer be employed for movies. And at that time, you were earning the most money and had the most opportunities." For her side, Hudson claimed that her demanding career prevented her from giving Shepard her all. She admitted that she wasn't providing Dax what he wanted and that her decisions weren't centred on the relationship.
Of course, Shepard later started dating his future wife Kristen Bell. After her relationship with Shepard, Hudson allegedly had a romantic relationship with the late actor Heath Ledger.
Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell became one of Hollywood's most well-known couples years after the couple's breakup from Kate Hudson. The couple has been together for more than ten years and openly declares their love for one another. They are the parents of two children, Lincoln and Delta. "Oh, I love him. He truly is the best that has ever existed "Bell spoke with Page Six.
Following her time with Shepard, Kate Hudson also found love. The actress started dating Muse vocalist Matt Bellamy in 2010. A few months later, Hudson, who has a son named Ryder with her ex-husband Chris Robinson, revealed that she and her partner were expecting their first child. The couple, according to People, decided to break off their engagement in 2014 but vowed to continue being "close friends and devoted co-parents."
Despite their breakup, Hudson tried her luck with another man. The "Deepwater Horizon" actress made her engagement to Danny Fujikawa public in 2021. The couple made their red carpet debut in 2017, and one year later, they had their first child together. In a post on Instagram, the couple announced their engagement. Hudson added the words "Let's go" and the bride and groom emojis.
