Kate Hudson just gave birth to a baby girl and her name is a super unique tribute to someone special

2018 has arguably been the year of the celebrity pregnancy announcement. The Kardashian-Jenner's bid to repopulate Planet Earth proved largely successful, and now it seems like everyone has decided to follow suit.

Chrissy Tiegen and John Legend welcomed their second child back in May, and currently, everyone from Carrie Underwood to Pippa Middleton are due to have their bébés before the year is out. The most recent addition to the celebrity circuit? Kate Hudson and Danny Fujikawa's daughter.

Hudson and her musician boyfriend, Fujikawa, took to Instagram yesterday to announce that they have welcomed their first child.

"She's here!" the actress captioned the image, which featured her baby girl's birthdate - October 2nd. Hudson later revealed her daughter's name, which was a sweet tribute to Fujikawa's father.

"We have decided to name our daughter Rani (pronounced Ronnie) after her grandfather, Ron Fujikawa," the Almost Famous star wrote. "Ron was the most special man who we all miss dearly. To name her after him is an honour."

"Everyone is doing well and happy as can be. Our family thanks you all for the love and blessings that have been sent our way and we send ours right back."

Hudson appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in September, with her mother, actress Goldie Hawn, and revealed that she was still deciding on baby names. "We have a couple of them and we're going to decide when the day comes," the 39-year-old said.

And back in April, Hudson surprised her fans by sharing a sex-reveal video, in which she and Fujikawa announced that they were expecting a girl.

"SURPRISE!!! If you’ve wondered why I’ve been so absent on my social channels it’s because I have never been more sick! It was the most sick first trimester of all my children. Boomerangs have made me nauseous, Superzoom is an easy way to have my head in the toilet, food instagrams make me queezy and thinking too much about insta stories made me even more exhausted than I already had been. If you’ve seen me out and about smiling and pretending like everything is amazing...I was lying! BUT! I have broken through on the other end of that and rediscovering the joys of insta/snap. We have been trying to keep this pregnancy under the radar for as long as possible but I’m a poppin now! And it’s too darn challenging to hide, and frankly hiding is more exhausting then just coming out with it! My kids, Danny, myself and the entire family are crazy excited! A little girl on the way," she captioned the video, which was shared to Instagram.

The activewear designer has two children from previous relationships. 14-year-old Ryder Russell Robinson with Black Crowes frontman, Chris Robinson, and six-year-old Bingham Hawn Bellamy, whose father is Muse frontman, Matt Bellamy.

Well, congratulations are certainly in order for Kate and Danny!
