Kate Hudson is expecting! Here's some fast facts about her baby's daddy, Danny Fujikawa.

Kate Hudson is pregnant! And it's a girl! But the more important question: Who is Danny Fukijawa, the baby daddy? When it comes to celebrities, few are quite as adorable or lovable as Kate Hudson. Seriously, we can't get enough of her goofy humor or relatable nature, so we're super stoked that she's bringing another baby into the world.

In an Instagram post earlier today, Hudson shared a video of her family announcing her pregnancy (and the baby's gender — a girl!) to her fans, and we may or may not have squealed in excitement right along with Hudson's elated crew, which included her boyfriend, Danny Fujikama, and her two sons, Ryder and Bingham. But with that excitement came curiosity about her beau, Danny Fujikawa. Who is this mystery man who has won over one of our most beloved blondes?

No worries, we've got it covered. After some intensive searching through the interwebs, we've uncovered the core of who Danny Fujikawa is and, as it turns out, he's a pretty cool dude (oh come on, would you expect anything less?). Not only is he going to give Hudson her first baby girl (eeeeeek!), he's also a man who is much, much more than just Kate Hudson's boyfriend. There's a lot more to him than what you see on the surface (which, let's be honest, is scruffy perfection), and he's got a lot going for him on his own. So, without further ado, here's six things you need to know about the man who is helping to complete Hudson's perfect hippy baby tribe.

1. He's a musician, because of course.

Hudson has a clear pattern of cozying up with rockers. In fact, both of her sons' fathers are musicians. Ryder's dad is The Black Crowes front man, Chris Robinson, who Hudson was married to for seven years, and Bingham's dad is a British rocker from the band, Muse. So it comes as no surprise that Danny Fujikawa comes from the same thread. Fujikawa has released his own solo album, Cellophane Castles under his own label, and was previously a singer and guitarist for the band, Chief.

2. He and Hudson have known each other for more than a decade.

Say whaaaat? Yes, Hudson and Fujikawa actually met when Hudson was just 23 years old. At the time, she was dating Chris Robinson, and was pregnant with their son, Ryder. Crazy, right? Also crazy, Ryder is 14 now. Yeah, go put on some moisturizer and cry now. Anyway, during a recent interview with The Talk, she gushed that the two had known each other for 15 years. Fujikawa is Hudson's best friend's stepbrother, so they were very well acquainted before they cozied up with one another.

3. He's a smart cookie.

Fujikawa has got more than just a pretty face and a nice set of vocals — he's also got some smarts to him. He attended New York University. That's actually where he and his Chief bandmates started to collaborate on projects together. NYU, y'all — they don't let any ole academic through the door. Well done, Kate. Well done.

4. He's got her parents' approval.

You know that old saying "If momma aint happy, aint nobody happy"? Well, that saying is especially true when you're a celebrity (looking at you, Kris Jenner), and even more so when your parents are celebrities too. But no worries, Fujikawa has the approval of Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, and have been quoted as saying "he's a very special guy." It's a good thing, because there are few families in Hollywood quite as close as Hudson's clan, and winning over her parents is kind of a big deal.

5. He has his own record label.

He co-founded Lightwave Records in 2013 with Delta Mirror frontman, Chris Acosta, which he's released his own music under. He did so for creative reasons, and to release his own music on his own terms. He's also released music for other artists under his own label. Gotta love a guy who is independent and driven.

6. He's got a good sense of humor.

Take one look at his Instagram page, and his sense of humor is immediately evident. Hudson is known for her adorable laugh and quick witted one-liners, so being able to both take the heat and dish it back is most likely a part of the application process of winning her over. Fujikawa is an obviously smart and talented specimen, but he doesn't take himself too seriously.

After conducting our research, we've concluded that Danny Fujikawa deserves our resounding approval, and based off of the way we've seen Hudson gush over him during her last few appearances, we think he's definitely earned her's too. We're so happy to see her happy. Nothing is more beautiful than a woman who glows from the inside out, and if Fujikawa is the reason for her glow (plus, you know, the hormones) we're going to give him two very enthusiastic thumbs up. Congrats, Kate. Happy looks good on you.
