Nesting Time

Hudson, who is six-months pregnant, and Robinson buy the same Pacific Palisades home that Goldie Hawn owned while six months pregnant with her. Living in the two-story, four-bedroom home evokes childhood memories for Hudson, who spent her first 12 years there with Oliver, half-brother Wyatt Russell, and stepbrother Boston Russell.

Hudson says to PEOPLE, "I felt I had no choice but to set the record straight."

Kate Hudson is PEOPLE's Most Beautiful

A 29-year-old Hudson headlines PEOPLE's 100 Most Beautiful list, landing on the annual cover. "I was a tomboy. I had three brothers. I was the girl with the dress on that always came back in the house filthy with scrapes and bruises," Hudson reveals to PEOPLE. "But I was always very girly. I had to be able to twirl so that my underwear showed."
