I'll have his baby but won't marry him - Kate

Actress Kate Hudson says she has no plans to marry her British rock idol boyfriend Matt Bellamy.

The Almost Famous star is expecting a child with the Muse frontman, who is originally from Devon and whose hit albums include Absolution.

But Hudson said she saw no reason to tie the knot again, after a previous marriage to Black Crowes star Chris Robinson.

The 31-year-old Hollywood star denied she and Bellamy had got engaged, as she recorded this week's Graham Norton show for BBC1.

"Not that I know of. I don't like putting that sort of pressure on it and I don't feel it necessary to get married," said the A Little Bit Of Heaven actress, who has a son Ryder from her relationship with Robinson.

"I am 31. I already have one child and have had one divorce so it is not necessarily the golden ticket. I just want to be happy. My parents have been 30 years not married, so it's not something I feel I have to do."

She gushed about her guitarist boyfriend's accent.

"It was the phone calls that signed the deal for me -- hearing his voice on the phone. It was so lovely," Hudson said, adding: "He has corrected some of my use of English."

She said they had thought of baby names but were keeping them under wraps.
