How it went down

The first ones to wish Kate a happy birthday were her family. The actress (finally!) shared a cute snap with all three of her kids: sons Ryder and Bingham, aged 15 and 7 respectively, and 6-month-old daughter Rani Rose. She wrote in the caption:

My wishes came true 💫 Thank you for all the love today ❤️🙏❤️ #ThisIs40

Celebrations with friends started early in the day, with Kate’s pal Gwyneth Paltrow taking her to a yoga workout followed by a small surprise birthday party at a coffee shop!

Kate’s family, including boyfriend Danny Fujikawa, mom Goldie Hawn, stepdad Kurt Russell, and brother Oliver Hudson, and the actress’ celebrity pals had gathered at the coffee shop and waited for the birthday girl to arrive.

Kate was so surprised to see so many of her nearest and dearest in one place that she screamed!

Goldie Hawn’s sweet tribute

Birthday girl’s mom Goldie Hawn certainly had the nicest wish for her daughter. The actress wanted everyone to share her happiness and wrote a sweet little rhyme, which she shared on Instagram along with a throwback photo of her and Kate:

Twinkle twinkle little star ⭐️ I wish I wonder who you are
Bring to me a little girl so I can mother a precious pearl 
That will bring more love into my world 
Thank you for my Katie girl! 
Happy birthday darling ❤️❤️
