In March, Kim appeared on an episode of The Jennifer Hudson Show and shared that while the internet has dubbed him a "zaddy," he only found out what the word means from his kids.

"The first time I saw that, I thought it must be a typo. I don't know why there's a 'z' in front of there... I heard it on the internet, that was the first time," he said.

"And then my kids kind of told me, 'Oh, it kind of means this and that,' and I was like, 'Oh.' "

Later in their conversation, Hudson brought up how Kim was named as one of PEOPLE's Sexiest Men Alive twice — in both 2005 and 2021. When Hudson, 42, asked Kim what that SMA buzz meant to his kids, he explained that he'll "always be dad to them."

"I make dad jokes around the house and they roll their eyes. But I actually do think they're happy that I don't look like an old man," Kim said. "That I still could make that list."
