Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell are grandparents again! The couple already has multiple grandchildren between Kate and Oliver Hudson, but their son Wyatt Russell has announced that he has welcomed his first child with his wife Meredith Hagner. Following a photoshoot that was released with Vogue, Hagner announced the exciting news on her Instagram. The Search Party actress even revealed the baby boy's name -- Buddy Prine.

"VOGUE, BABY! And right after these photos we HAD A BABY, BABY! April issue of @voguemagazine in our van, Carnella, which we lived in for a big chunk of my pregnancy. 2 weeks after these photos were taken we welcomed the heavenly Buddy Prine Russell into the world! It's been nothing short of magic."

Russell's older sister Kate Hudson had also posted pics announcing the exciting news last November on her own Instagram during her sister-in-law's baby shower.

Russell and Hagner first met filming Folk Hero & Funny Guy in 2016 and then tied the knot in 2019 and Goldie and Kurt's home in Aspen, Colorado. The couple was featured in Vogue in March as part of an interior design article, showing off Hagner's growing baby bump as well as the inside of their van they renovated to take lengthy vacations around the country together. 

"Vacations were always a little difficult because we have to plan last-minute because of our jobs," explained Russell, who is starring in Disney's new Marvel series, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. With the van, they are able to take off for a month at a time, just getting away from the craziness of their lives in Hollywood.

"People assume all the time: Your husband got the van, and he's dragging you along," said Hagner. "It's the opposite--though I wouldn't call it dragging me along, either." 

Of course, the couple is going to make some updates to the van to make it more accessible for their first baby. Hagner explained that as soon as they make changes they'll be able to hit the road with Buddy. "That'll be a whole new set of adventures."
