Kate Hudson’s Gender Predicting Pendulum Test Failed

Monday, July 11th, 2011

Kate Hudson pregnantKate Hudson and fiance Matt Bellamy welcomed their new addition on Saturday night — a baby boy. The couple decided not to find out the baby’s gender during her pregnancy, but Hudson was convinced she was having a girl thanks to a few gender predicting old wives’ tales. Wrong! Even though gender predicting tricks like the Ancient Chinese Birth Chart are fun ways to ponder whether a boy or a girl is on the way, it seems they really are nothing more than old wives’ tales.

Hudson tried the pendulum test on the Today show back in April. She held a ring tied to a piece of hair in front of her bump and it went in a circle, supposedly indicating that she was expecting a girl. She also said she was carrying the baby differently than she did when she was pregnant with her first son Ryder, now 7 years old. Hudson used the pendulum test during her first pregnancy, too, and back then it predicted a boy correctly.

So is Hudson disappointed with baby boy number two? We doubt it. Hudson did tell Entertainment Tonight, “If it comes out a boy … to see the look on Ryder’s face. I mean, forget it.”

Kate Hudson Uses the Pendulum Test to Predict Baby’s Sex

Thursday, April 28th, 2011

pregnant kate hudsonPregnant Kate Hudson revealed her gender predicting trick on the Today show yesterday morning, saying she used the pendulum test to predict whether she’s having a boy or a girl. So what is the pendulum test and what does it say about Hudson’s baby-to-be?

The exact process differs depending on who you ask. But basically you dangle a chain with a charm over your palm or your belly. If it swings back and forth it’s a boy, and if it goes in a circle it’s a girl. Hudson used a ring tied to a piece of her hair instead, and the pendulum test revealed she’s having a girl. But for believers of gender predicting tricks associated with how you carry your baby — Kate says she’s carrying no differently than she did with her son Ryder. Maybe she should try our Ancient Chinese Birth Chart to predict her baby’s gender next.

“I keep saying ‘she,’ but she’s so nuts in here, she’s so wild. I kinda feel like it’s got the Hawn gene — my mom’s lineage for sure. Dancing every day,” Hudson said.

So is it a boy or a girl for Hudson? We’ll have to wait until July to find out for sure. The Something Borrowed star also recently announced that she is engaged to the baby’s father, Muse frontman Matthew Bellamy.
