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

Any bets on how long until she dumps him for someone else and brings another man into her son’s life?

To those who don’t care for Kate anymore, you probobally realized that she hasn’t much talent and if not for her mom, might not even be wearing that ring– how about doing it the old fahioned way, get married first, but her mom is doing the same thing. I am tired of people congratulating others for having babies first. She already has one with a different dad, broke Owen’s heart. What is there to be crazy about her for? I don’t see much talent either and most women can have babies. I am obviously not a fan.

No bets here. Probably because my name is not Judgy VonHolier-Than-Thou.

Referring to another post regarding the correct order to tackle life’s monumental steps (dating, career, marriage, babies) I think this is what society deems as “correct” not because of morals so much (or should not be the reason) – but because for the average person it’s just the easiest way – it’s HARD to be going to school/working on your career when you have babies @ home, it’s hard to field questions and deal with stigmas when you have children but are not married, but this is for AVERAGE people – not celebrities – tackling life’s BIG moments isn’t so hard for them – so that’s why I believe they don’t revel in shame over it. I have friends who have kids and are not married, are going back to school after having kids – and it’s HARD for them – celebrities don’t have to go back to school/or “work” on their career – they’re already at the pinnacle of their success.

I hope for everyone’s sake that it works out. Maybe Kate is growing up. Matt totally rocks and I would love to have a guy like him. I just hope she appreciates it.

Very lovely ring. She looks great and very happy too! Hope this one lasts. I was raised to believe that marriage is a onetime thing with your one true love but I won’t judge others who get married multiple times.It’s not my way but far be it from me to push my views on others. What’s right for some, isn’t right for all.

She wants BABY not him…Her parent are not married and happy together…

Matt Bellamy is a great person and she is lucky to have him! I like her bubbly personality. He is a very private person but very funny and silly its a good match. : )
