Kate Hudson posted an Instagram story today and inadvertently revealed that she’s ready to go into labor.

Hudson was showing her fans her copy of Reese Witherspoon’s recipe book, Whiskey In A Teacup. As the title implies, some of the recipes are for alcoholic drinks which Hudson can’t enjoy because she’s pregnant. But in the video, the Almost Famous actress openly wondered whether a shot of whiskey would move the birthing process along.

“I figure a little shot of whiskey could put me into labor,” Hudson quipped. “I’m looking for that chapter right now. How do Southern girls get labor going?”

Kate Hudson announced that she was pregnant with her third child in April of this year. This will be her first child with boyfriend Danny Fujikawa. She has two other children, Ryder, 14, and Bingham, 7, with Chris Robinson and Matt Bellamy.

Us Weekly reports that she recently held her baby shower, an event that was attended by celebrity pals like Sara and Erin Foster. Celebrity jewelry designer, Jennifer Meyer, was also there.

According to the article, Hudson wore a white crochet number which allowed her to flaunt her growing baby belly.

Hudson, 39, revealed that she’ll be having her first girl, during her pregnancy announcement. The announcement video was actually recorded at a gender reveal party. In the clip, you can at first see Hudson, Fujikawa and her boys are holding black balloons which they later pop to unleash a shower of pink confetti and balloons

“SURPRISE!!!” Hudson wrote in the caption of the post. “If you’ve wondered why I’ve been so absent on my social channels it’s because I have never been more sick!”

She added that she’s been trying to hide the pregnancy for some time but doing so had become impossible.

“My kids, Danny, myself and the entire family are crazy excited! A little girl on the way,” she continued.

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. 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! BUT! I have broken through on the other end of that and rediscovering the joys of insta/snap. 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 ????

Before her pregnancy announcement, the actress told British newspaper, The Times, that she was not done having kids and was looking forward to welcoming a baby girl into her life.

She expressed that she thought a daughter would be “fun” and that the number of kids she has would depend on how many her boyfriend can handle.

“We’ll see. We’ll see how many Danny wants,” she said.
