Kate Hudson: Gender-Prediction Wives' Tale Wrong

Kate Hudson
Kate Hudson gave birth to a baby boy June 9, but the gender was an extreme surprise to the actress and her fiance, Matt Bellamy. 

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.

Hudson had her older son with her musician ex-husband Chris Robinson.
