Kate Hudson feels "very connected" to her "patchwork family".

The 45-year-old actress has sons Ryder, 20, ex-husband Chris Robinson, Bingham, 12,with her former partner Matt Bellamy as well as five-year-old Rani with her fiancé Danny Fujikawa and admitted that she has "figured out" all the dynamics of her "modern" family.

She told People: "We are very connected, and we are very close. Love can change form. It’s interesting when you have that modern family; there’s so much love for all the kids!

"I think the thing that's so unique about my life is that in this very patchwork family, we all have figured it out … The kids feel like they have this huge family.

The 'Glass Onion' star noted that even her exes' children are "like sisters" to her youngest and that her clan has been "nurtured" in a way that she believes is not all too common.

"My exes' daughters and Rani are like sisters … There is something that has been able to be nurtured in our family that is personally what I think is, it's very rare."

The 'Talk About Love' singer is even keen to babysit Lovella, four, - who he has with wife Elle Evans - and is "so happy" to have what she calls a "real family unit" around her because she can see everyone feels "safe" amid the setup.

She said: "I'm like 'Yea, bring her over!' And I'm sitting with all the kids and I'm like, I am so happy we have this real family unit that’s big. It’s beautiful. Everybody’s open to it and understands it’s the most mature thing for the kids. And you can see it in them — they feel loved, they feel protected, they feel safe."
