Kate Hudson has set the record straight after she was quoted as saying she is taking a "genderless" approach to raising her children.

The actress, who welcomed daughter Rani in October, was asked by AOL if having a baby girl made her do anything differently compared to raising her sons Ryder, 15, and Bingham, seven.

She replied: "It doesn't really change my approach, but there's definitely a difference. I think you just raise your kids individually regardless - like a genderless (approach). We still don't know what she's going to identify as."

After the comments attracted attention online, she took to Instagram to clear up her message and to hit back at "click bait" headlines.

She wrote: "Dear all my friends, fans and others who read this. Recently someone asked me something along the lines of, if having and raising a girl is different from boys.

"My response was simple. Not really. This whole click bait tactic of saying I'm raising my daughter to be 'genderless' is silly and frankly doesn't even make sense.

"I raise and continue to raise my children, both my boys and girl to feel free to be exactly who they want to be. To feel confident in their life choices and feel loved and supported no matter what.

"Me saying a 'genderless approach" was a way of re focusing the conversation in a direction that could exist outside of the female stereotype. It just felt a little antiquated to me. Not all girls want to be a princess, some want to be king. And that's fine by me."

She continued: "I recognize some want to take the headline earnestly as if I have some new age method of raising my kids and I really do hate disappointing people but, I don't.

"I just try to raise my kids to be good people with the best tools to face this big crazy world.

"And if they grow up and identify with something different than what others want to identify them as ... Mama's cool with it!

"I keep it simple cause we all know raising kids is anything but!"
