Rocker was engaged to Italian psychologist

Kate Hudson and Matt Bellamy have been loved-up for 9 months, but they’re not planning to marry.

Matt has been engaged before and Kate insists he hasn’t popped the question – despite rumours of a secret engagement.

The Cambridge-born rocker, 32, ended his eight-year romance with Italian psychologist Gaia Polloni at the end of 2009.

They got engaged in 2006 and Gaia took a break in her studies to move in with Matt in the UK.

She often joined him on tour, but eventually got tired of reports that he was ‘trying it on’ with other women.

Kate’s mum Goldie Hawn, 65, and her partner Kurt Russell, 59, aren’t convinced Matt is the right man for her.

Goldie and Kurt didn’t think this was going to be a lasting relationship,’ says a family friend.

‘They figured it was just a fling that would burn out before long. Now Kate’s pregnant and talking marriage.

‘They think he encourages her to be irresponsible.

Kate follows him around on tour…it’s like she’s a teenager again.

‘It’s not the kind of stable relationship Goldie and Kurt want for her.’

We’re sure he isn’t just a rock star cliché, Kate, but let’s hope mama doesn’t know best…
