London: Hollywood actress Kate Hudson wanted to keep her pregnancy news under wraps, but landed up sparking health concerns among her closest friends.
"I`m pregnant, and I`m really sick. But I couldn`t say that because you really want to keep it as quiet as you can for the first trimester," said the blonde beauty.
The 31-year-old actress who is expecting her second child with rocker boyfriend Matthew Bellamy, admitted that she tried hard to keep the good news a secret till she passed her first trimester.
But her friends started thinking that the `Bride Wars` star was ill, reported Times online.
"My friends all thought I was depressed because I wouldn`t leave the house. But I didn`t want anyone to know for a long time. I was just hoping that all of a sudden, I could show up somewhere with a big belly.
"But, of course, you`re somewhere in LA and somebody says something, and it ends up somewhere," said Hudson.
She admits that being pregnant also means enduring morning sickness. While waiting for the due date of her baby, which she says is in the summer, Hudson cited the `pregnancy brain` saying, "I babble a lot. I forget words, and how to put sentences together. I just give up."
