kate hudson birthday surprise party Kate Hudson's surprise birthday party includes Cameron Diaz and Judd ApatowKate Hudson told US Weekly prior to her birthday that she just wanted “to hang with [her] family.” Guess she was pretty surprised when her fiance threw her a star-studded bash in New York last weekend.

On April 20 in the West Village, Matthew Bellamy, who popped the question to Hudson two years ago, threw his fiancee a party that included friends Cameron Diaz, and celebrity couple Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann.

“Kate was totally surprised,” a source tells US. “The party started outside, but it was freezing so people moved inside and danced … Kate loves to dance and she was just really happy talking to everyone. She looked beautiful and beaming in a tight metallic dress.”

Hudson’s actual birthday, April 19, was spent watching Bellamy’s band Muse play a gig at the IZOD Center in New Jersey.
