She's been engaged to Matthew Bellamy
for a week already, but Kate Hudson
is still brimming with joy.
"They're so happy and excited," a pal of Hudson's tells PEOPLE. "She's ecstatic!"
Hudson and Bellamy, who are expecting a child together this summer, are in no rush to head down the aisle. For now, they're relishing in their engagement bliss.
"They're madly in love," says her pal.
The pair, both 32, began dating in April 2010 shortly after Hudson met the Muse singer at the Coachella Music Festival.
So what does Hudson, who is also mom to her son with Chris Robinson, 7-year-old Ryder, adore so much about her new fiancé?
"I love that Matthew knows how to express himself," she told InStyle
recently. "He shows his love. He communicates."
