Kate Hudson stepped out for the first time as a mother of three!

Five weeks after welcoming daughter Rani Rose with boyfriend Danny Fujikawa, the actress, 39, made her first public appearance on Wednesday when she celebrated her new role with the United Nation’s World Food Programme during an event in Los Angeles.

Hudson, who gave birth on Oct. 2, was joined by designer Michael Kors and AccessNatalie Morales (who moderated the event) and spoke to the latter about life at home with her newborn.

“I’m just starting to get the itch to get out a little bit more, but I’m enjoying every second,” said the Fabletics co-founder, who is also mom to 7-year-old son Bingham Hawn and 14-year-old son Ryder Russell.

And how is having a daughter different than a son? “The cooing,” Hudson said, explaining, “She’s all girl. She’s feminine” and adding that mom Goldie Hawn‘s longtime partner Kurt Russell is “very smitten” with Rani.

“Seeing Kurt with her is really special,” the star shared.

Of her sweet face, Hudson says her daughter is the spitting image of her musician father, 32. “She’s a Fujikawa. It’s the cutest thing,” says the actress. “When you love your partner so much, and you see your child look just like your partner it’s like your heart melts.”

Hudson’s first work event as a new mom also comes less than a week after she was appointed as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations World Food Programme.

The Rome-based humanitarian organization provides food assistance to more than 90 million people in over 80 countries.

“As a mother, I understand the vital importance proper food and nutrition play in the life of a child,” Hudson previously said.

“The work of the World Food Programme is so much more than just feeding people, it’s about strengthening families, rebuilding communities, and ensuring everyone, everywhere has access to the food they need to not only survive but thrive.”

This is not Hudson’s first partnership with the World Food Programme. In 2015, she joined Kors’ Watch Hunger Stop campaign.
