She admits to gaining some mothering skills while filming her new movie, Raising Helen. She plays a glamorous single girl whose life turns upside down when she is suddenly forced to become guardian of her orphaned nieces and nephew.
Hudson said the role gave her an inkling of what's to come in her life. "A little bit, you know. It's the same thing as my mom telling me that, you know, wait till you hear 'mom' a hundred thousand times. 'Mom. Mom. Mom?' You know, that stuff," said Hudson.
For this Mother's Day, she has more than one message for Goldie.
"I have so many Mother's Day messages for my mother … there's so much to learn from her, you know? It's just endless,' said Hudson. "She just creates this energy around her that is so magnetic, you know. And with everything that she is — the most important thing [is] being a mom."
