Easy Ryder

Ever since the birth of Ryder Russell Robinson on January 7th, many have speculated where Kate Hudson and husband Chris Robinson came up with Ryder. (Russell was to honor Kate’s stepdad Kurt Russell.) Well, I found this quote from Kate that explains it all.

"This is a good story. I like this story, I was on the road with Chris when I was 8 months pregnant. Every night Chris ended his show with a song called "Ride" and Ryder would go insane in my stomach, every time. So I said, "Wouldn’t it be funny if we called him "Ride" but we’re both Grateful Dead fans and "I Know You, Rider" is one of our favorite songs. And I thought Ryder sounds great. I mean he never stopped moving. So it kind of fit perfectly".
