Kate Hudson's Engagement RingPeter Kramer/NBC (2)

When Kate Hudson announced her engagement on Today this morning, she told Matt Lauer she’d kept the big news under wraps for a week because she was “waiting for someone to notice.” But with a ring like this, we’re surprised it took so long! Hudson flashed her sparkler during her segment — she was promoting her latest film, Something Borrowed — and proudly announced that rocker beau Matthew Bellamy had recently popped the question. “It was very sweet,” the actress said, without giving away details. “It was very romantic.” Later on in the day, Hudson and son Ryder strolled into New York City’s Greenwich Hotel, where fans wished her well. “[She] smiled when onlookers outside the hotel screamed and asked to see her engagement ring,” a witness tells PEOPLE. As well they should: the emerald-cut diamond, flanked by two sparkling baguettes, is definitely something to scream about. —Reporting by Mary S. Park

Why did she wait for someone to ;notice’ she was engaged? But then again, why is she flaunting she is pregnant and THEN engaged…2011 or not, its still inappropriate!!

Lisa, What little girls are you allowing to read People or watch the E! channel?? What was the last thing Kate Hudson did for a kids’ program that they would be exposed to? If you’re incapable of monitoring your ‘little girls’ media intake, that’s a parenting issue on YOUR part, not Kate’s or anyone else in the media who choose what happiness is to them.

He is her type just like her ex husband. I like her still and I wish her the best. I commend them for making sure they wanted to continue the relationship before getting engaged as she got pregnant right after they started dating…it is just like Jennie Garth she gave birth June 1997 less than 9 months after divorcing her ex husband and her and Peter are happily married and have 3 girls all these years later!

Seriously? She could have done something with her hair. She looks like Miss Bizz!

Hilarious! Love it when people get all up in arms over some one being pregnant and not married and believe that their way is the only and correct way of doing things… It’s people like you who bring the world down not people like Kate Hudson who seems to always have a happy smile on her face.

Nobody’s hating on her. I think Shannon summed it up pretty well with, “I know she grates on our nerves now…Cause although pretty, she is a Stage Five Clinger. She falls “so deeply in Love” after about 1 date and that’s all you hear about. Blah Blah Blah”.

THAT and the fact that every man she “dates” is brought into her son’s life. I don’t care who she sleeps w/ but the fact that her son is around every last one of them is not cool. And it’s no secret that she’s had her fair share of men. Being responsible isn’t old school.

Hey Jennifer, I can put my finger on why you don’t like Kate Hudson…could it be that you’re jealous because Matt Bellamy proposed to her and not you? Hahaha…eat your heart out!

Wow, there are a lot of righteous, judgemental mean people out there! Whatever happened to being happy for someone. She seems to be a great mom to her son, have a loving family and has found a new happiness in her life. Can’t we say congrats instead of trying to tear her down? Oh and @Katherine White- I don’t think Kate Hudson has done any or all of the things you mention….you seem to think all stars are the same….again, wow the judements!
