Every year, Kurt Russell’s unwavering commitment to Goldie Hawn melts hearts and defies society’s expectations. At 72, he has shattered stereotypes, finding joy in simply being Hawn’s loving and devoted partner. And if that weren’t enough to make you feel warm and fuzzy, Russell’s heart overflows with love as he embraces his role as a beloved grandfather to Kate Hudson’s children.
Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell’s long-lasting relationship is a testament that true love can endure despite societal norms and expectations. The couple, who first met on the set of the film, The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band, in 1966, have been together for more than 4 decades.
There have been numerous instances of them confessing their love for each other. One of them was when Russell expressed his feelings during a speech, saying, “Simply put, Goldie, I cherish you. All the stars in the sky or on the boulevard can’t hold a candle to that. There’s no one else I’d rather be next to for all of that than Goldie Hawn.”
The relationship between Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell has stood the test of time, but it wasn’t without its challenges. Like any long-term relationship, Hawn and Russell have faced difficulties, from the pressures of Hollywood to personal struggles, and there were times when their relationship was almost at a breaking point.
Not succumbing to these rumors, the couple remained together and denied any trouble, and as a source claimed, “It doesn’t take much for them to kiss and make up, and their bond became stronger after that turbulent split.”
Even after being together for over 3 decades and having 4 children, Russell and Hawn have never officially tied the knot. They have spoken openly about their decision not to get married, with Hawn stating, “No, we never got married, but one thing that continues to grow is our love.”
While some may view their decision not to get married as unconventional, Hawn and Russell’s relationship serves as a reminder that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to love and commitment. “Vows are made. Vows are broken. Promises are made; promises are broken. What does a piece of paper have to do with it for me?” Hawn said.
A legal contract or a wedding ceremony does not define the couple’s affection for each other. What matters most is the deep love and mutual respect 2 people have for each other, regardless of their marital status.
“It’s not about the marriage. It’s about the people and the relationship and the will to stay together,” Goldie stated. “And that’s a big one because if you want it, you can have it. You’ve got to give things up, but the joy and the excitement of being together and touching the toes of somebody at night is really a nice feeling.”
Despite being in the public eye, Russell and Hawn have managed to maintain a relatively private family life. Still, they have often expressed their love and pride for their children. They have also welcomed their children’s partners and children into their family, making for a large and loving extended family.
Hawn expressed her admiration for the amount of effort they put into parenting and how it paid off. “Kurt and I are so proud. They’re mirroring the way they were raised, which shows how important it is to raise your kids well ’cause they will raise their kids well.”
Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn have a blended family that includes their children, Kate Hudson and Wyatt Russell. Hudson is Hawn’s daughter from a previous marriage, but Russell has been a father figure in her life since she was young. Hudson has frequently remarked on her affection for her stepfather, “Fun, adventurous, passionate, determined, honest, devoted, amazing father. Lucky us! Love you, Pa!” she wrote.
Even without being related by blood, the Russell-Hawn family has built a strong bond through their shared experiences and love for each other. Their family inspires many, showing that love and connection can come in many forms and that a blended family can be just as close-knit and fulfilling as a traditional one.
Also, Hawn acknowledges the significant roles that Russell plays as a father and grandfather. “How can I explain the gratitude and love I feel for the greatest father who has given us all so much in this life,” she explained.
In recent years, the couple has been enjoying their roles as grandparents to their growing brood of grandchildren. Hudson, who has 3 children of her own, often shares photos and updates on social media about the family’s fun and loving dynamic. Russell and Hawn always engage with all 7 of them, spending quality time and playing together.
Hawn says, “A good family is the answer to happiness. I look at our kids and grandchildren, and there’s nothing in the world that could make me as proud as I am of all of them.” She added, “Being a grandmother is amazing; I love it. It brings incredible joy. Family is so important.”
