People reported that the 38-year-old actress and her boyfriend, Danny Fujikawa, announced the news in a video posted on Instagram Friday.

The clip shows Hudson and Fujikawa, as well as Hudson’s sons Ryder Russell, 14, and Bingham Hawn, 6, popping four big black balloons, revealing pink confetti and smaller balloons in shades of pink.

Hudson said her social media absence was because of morning sickness.

“SURPRISE! If you’ve wondered why I’ve been so absent on my social channels it’s because I have never been more sick! It was the most sick first trimester of all my children,” Hudson captioned her post. “Boomerangs have made me nauseous, Superzoom is an easy way to have my head in the toilet, food instagrams make me queezy and thinking too much about insta stories made me even more exhausted than I already had been. If you’ve seen me out and about smiling and pretending like everything is amazing...I was lying!”

Hudson said she and Fujikawa have been keeping the news private for a while.

“We have been trying to keep this pregnancy under the radar for as long as possible but I’m a poppin now! And it’s too darn challenging to hide, and frankly hiding is more exhausting then just coming out with it! My kids, Danny, myself and the entire family are crazy excited! A little girl on the way.”

E! News reported that Fujikawa and Hudson have been dating for more than a year. Hudson was previously married to Chris Robinson, Ryder’s father. They divorced in 2007. Hudson dated Matt Bellamy, Bingham’s father, in 2010 and they split in 2014.

Maya Angelou’s 90th birthday: 7 inspiring quotes to remember her by

Google paid tribute to Dr. Maya Angelou on what would have been the beloved author and activist’s 90th birthday.

On Wednesday, the company created a video doodle for its homepage set to her famous poem “Still I Rise,” featuring her own voice and the voices of six other individuals she inspired, including Alicia Keys, America Ferrera, Martina McBride, Angelou’s son Guy Johnson, Laverne Cox and Oprah Winfrey.

At age 7, Angelou was raped by her mother’s boyfriend -- an experience that rendered her mute for five years. 

>> Read more trending news 

“During those years, however, books and poetry became her solace and constant companions, eventually helping her find her voice again to embark upon an intellectual and creative journey that defies description,” Google wrote in a blog post.

Angelou went on to perform in professional cabarets, covered Africa as a journalist and became a champion for civil rights. 

She became the first black woman to write a bestselling nonfiction book — her 1969 memoir, “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings.”

In 1998, she directed the film “Down in the Delta,” about a drug-wrecked woman who returns to the home of her ancestors in the Mississippi Delta.

Angelou was also the first poet in three decades to make an inaugural recitation when Bill Clinton became president in 1992.

She died at age 86 on May 28, 2014.

“Maya Angelou is not what she has done or written or spoken, it's how she did it all. She moved through the world with unshakeable calm, confidence, and a fiery, fierce grace and abounding love,” Winfrey said in the Google blog.

To honor the prolific poet on her 90th birthday, here are seven quotes to remember her by:

1. “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”

2. “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

3. “We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.”

4. “You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

5. “Have enough courage to trust love one more time and always one more time.”

6. “If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude.”

7. “The desire to reach for the stars is ambitious. The desire to reach hearts is wise.”
