Goldie Hawn Has 7 Grandkids and She Enjoys Being a Grandmother More and More
Goldie Hawn has a daughter and 2 sons, and each of her offspring has already made her a grandmother. The celebrity spends all her free time with her family, and she loves her numerous grandchildren to the point of losing her breath, raising them somewhat differently than she did her own children. We will tell you how Goldie became such an excellent grandmother, and why we should all take her advice to heart.
She has 7 grandchildren.
Goldie was married twice. After her second divorce in 1982, the actress got together with her co-star Kurt Russell. The couple never officially married, but they never parted ways either.
Goldie’s only daughter, actress Kate Hudson, has made her a grandmother 3 times over — the same number as her eldest son, Oliver. Wyatt, Goldie’s son with Russell, also has a child. In total, Goldie Hawn has 7 grandchildren, ranging from 2 to 19 years old.
Grandchildren call her Gogo.
With the arrival of their grandchildren, Goldie Hawn and her partner Kurt Russell have acquired cute nicknames. The younger members of the family call the actors Gogo and Gogi. Their mutual son, Wyatt, says that it started with the birth of Kate and Oliver. Russell was first called Gogi, and then Hawn got the nickname Gogo. Since then, the tradition has never been broken.
She lives not far from her grandchildren.
According to her eldest son Oliver, they have a large, close-knit family, and Hawn and Russell are excellent grandparents. In order to be directly involved in raising their grandchildren, Goldie and Kurt moved to a location near their children. They all settled in the Pacific Palisades neighborhood in Los Angeles. Their good neighborhood allows their grandchildren to visit their celebrity grandmother frequently in her mansion.
She practices conscious upbringing.
In 2003, Hawn took a break from her acting career and founded MindUP. This organization offers learning programs about mental health and training the brains of children. They are accessible for parents, kids, and schools.
Goldie admits that she realized she wanted to do it after her kids grew up, but this method works on her grandchildren. "They’ve taken MindUP principles and offered them to their kids, and they’re doing great.
She advised her grandchildren to be humble.
Goldie adores being a grandmother, and she sees this role as something very important. In one of her latest interviews, the actress talked about the main principles for her grandkids. “You have to work for a living, be compassionate and be realistic. I try to pass on what my father taught me: be humble and stand with both feet on the ground. The rest is up to them. Being there for them and knowing that they will have to solve things themselves is hard enough as it is.”
She gives them freedom.
In raising her grandchildren, Goldie follows a simple principle — it’s important to be there for them when they need it, but also to understand that they’ll have to figure out many things on their own.
The actress believes that she worked on raising her grandchildren long before she became a grandmother, when she was raising her own children. According to Hawn, parenting works like a domino effect, “As a parent, you basically raise your children to raise their children appropriately as well.” Everything indicates that Goldie did an excellent job as a parent, so being a grandmother comes naturally to her.
