Becoming an uncle has inspired Kate Hudson's actor brother Oliver Hudson to start making family plans - he has proposed to girlfriend ERINN (corr) BARTLETT.

The couple made their announcement official at the premiere of new mum Kate's new film Raising Helen in Hollywood on Wednesday (26MAY04).

And Hudson, Goldie Hawn's son, admits the decision was an easy one to make - after he became an uncle to baby RYDER in January (04).

He says, "It kills me because now I want a baby so bad."

Actress Bartlett appears in her future sister-in-law's new film - as a fashion show model.
