Kate Hudson’s mum Goldie Hawn has reportedly cautioned Kate about her new relationship with Alex Rodriguez.

Kate was first linked to baseball star Alex last month and both are said to be “somewhat serious” about the relationship - with Alex introducing the Bride Wars star to his friends and Kate and her son Ryder accompanying Alex on a trip to Texas.

But a source close to the family has said that Goldie is worried that the romance will go the same as her previous relationships since splitting from husband Chris Robinson in the summer of 2006: “Goldie feels it’s high time Kate settled down and left the dating scene behind for a while.

“Kate’s had a string of boyfriends since her divorce from Chris and it’s always the same pattern - she falls hard and fast, then gets bored or has her heart broken.

“Goldie hates the idea of seeing Kate getting hurt again.”

Over the past three years, Kate has dated Owen Wilson, Lance Armstrong and Dax Shepard. Last year, A-Rod’s wife Cynthia filed for divorce from the athelete on the grounds of his “spiritual affair” with Madonna.
