After 15 years of friendship, Kate Hudson and Danny Fujikawa realized that their relationship was something more.

The couple made their public debut in May 2017 after meeting through his stepsisters, who are friends with Hudson.

"He makes me feel beautiful every single moment of the day, even when we have fought," the Fabletics founder told PEOPLE. "I still feel loved. His devotion to the family unit makes me feel safe and confident and secure."

On Oct. 2, 2018, the Almost Famous star and musician welcomed a daughter, Rani Rose.

"I've seen her do things that I can't imagine doing myself and I'm very proud of her," Fujikawa said of Hudson shortly after Rani's birth. "And I'm in awe of her for some of the things that she is able to do when she sets her mind to it."

In September 2021, Fujikawa proposed to Hudson after nearly five years of dating.

So who is Hudson's fiancé? Here is everything to know about Danny Fujikawa and his relationship with Kate Hudson.

Fujikawa was the singer and guitarist for Los Angeles-based band Chief. The band released the EP "The Castle Is Gone" in 2009 and their debut full-length album, "Modern Rituals," in 2010 before they parted ways in June 2011.

In 2013, he founded Lightwave Records with The Delta Mirror frontman Chris Acosta. The company's Facebook page states that the duo founded Lightwave as "a way to release their music on their own terms."

He studied music at  New York University

According to his LinkedIn, Fujikawa studied recorded music at NYU between 2004 and 2006 but "left early to travel the world" and play music. He formed Chief while in college with his brother, Michael Fujikawa, and bandmates Evan Koga and Mike Moonves, son of former CBS exec Les Moonves.

"Chief has opened my eyes musically," Fujikawa told Domino Publishing Company. "I'm not just working on my own anymore and in that way I've grown as a person: I started out as a guitarist and now I have a voice."

He is related to the Foster family by marriage

Fujikawa's late father, Ron, was in a 10-year-relationship with Rebecca Dyer at the time of his death in 2012. Dyer has three daughters with famed musician David Foster: Jordan, Erin and Sara Foster.

Though Ron and Rebecca never married, the Foster sisters consider Fujikawa their stepbrother. Additionally, Fujikawa has two biological brothers, Michael and Braden.

He first met Hudson over a decade ago

In a December 2017 Instagram post, the Bride Wars star shared the story of how she first met her husband-to-be. At the time, Hudson was 23 and pregnant with her eldest child, Ryder Russell Robinson. The pair met through the actress' best friends, Sara and Erin, who are also Fujikawa's stepsisters.

"And so it goes we have been in the same circle for over a decade," she wrote. "A year ago today Danny took me on a hike and what I thought was just a hike with a family friend turned very quickly into an unexpected first date. No moves were made on this first date. In fact, it took months for him to make a first move! And as a kiss on this bridge would have been nice, the kiss a year later was so much sweeter."

"My love, simply put, you are the most brilliant father ❤️ We all love you so much," Hudson captioned a 2021 Father's Day tribute to Fujikawa.

In September 2022, Fujikawa and Hudson took Rani and Bingham to Disneyland to celebrate Rani's 4th birthday. In one sweet photo, the proud parents, the two kids and Minnie Mouse smile in front of a giant Mickey Mouse pumpkin.

On Nov. 7, 2022, Hudson shared a carousel of images of the proud parents enjoying a family vacation to the desert. "Take me to the dezzzz 🏜 #familyrandr," Hudson captioned the snaps, which featured Fujikawa, Rani, plus friends relaxing and dining.

He is proud of his heritage

Fujikawa is Asian-American. His grandfather, Dr. Yoshihiko Fujikawa, was one of the first Japanese-Americans to attend medical school in the U.S. and was able to pay for school by working at a fruit stand. Fujikawa has posted about his Asian heritage on social media on numerous occasions.

In July 2017, Fujikawa shared a photo of a Blu-ray Disc box of Japanese cult hit Akira with the caption, "I'm a glass is half Japanese kind of guy." In 2012, he posted an old photo of his "ojisan and obachan," which means grandfather and grandmother in Japanese.

With Fujikawa's background in video editing and music, it made sense that he would handle the editing and music for one of Hudson's Happy x Nature clothing line promos. On March 28, 2019, he shared an ad of Hudson modeling the clothes.

"Here lies the teaser I edited and musically composed for my baby's new 'ready-to-wear' clothing line," he wrote. "Of all the clothes in the world that are ready to wear, these are the most ready."

He popped the question to Hudson with a stunning ring

Between acting, running a business, hosting a podcast and raising three kids, Hudson definitely has a full plate. Luckily, she receives plenty of support and help from Fujikawa, as she told Women's Health in 2019.

"If I have to go to a dinner meeting, he can be home," she said, adding that family is the "number one priority" for both of them.

"I've got the best man," she continued. "It's the first time I feel like I have a real teammate in this. We're able to pick up where the other one has to leave off."
