Kate Hudson is feeling the wrath of mothers after implying that getting a cesarean section is taking the easy route when it comes to childbirth.
The 38-year-old mother of two appears on Cosmopolitan’s October cover — and found herself facing controversy when she answered “Have a C-Section!” when asked to name the laziest thing she’s ever done. Hudson gave birth to now-13-year-old son Ryder via c-section.
Social media users have been sharing her answer and criticizing her response.
“Hey #KateHudson – please tell me which part of major abdominal surgery is “lazy”? The procedure? The heal time? The 9 months of work prior?” tweeted one reader.
Another wrote, “Hey #KateHudson c sections saved my sons’ lives….sorry you define that as lazy #GetAClue.”
Another mom wrote, “Yeah, #KateHudson, having my daughter by c-section instead of letting her die was really “lazy” of me. Lost so much respect for you there.”
Hudson’s rep didn’t immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
