Kate Hudson was put on the spot about her relationship status during an appearanceon the Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday, but the Pretty Happy author brushed it off.

"I'm dating," she admitted. But when host Ellen DeGeneres pressed for more, the 36-year-old actress just laughed.

Hudson played equally as coy when asked what she did for Valentine's Day, saying, "I don't remember."

Hudson was much more forthcoming with DeGeneres when it came to the subject of adorable furry animals. The Kung Fu Panda 3 star recently traveled to China, where she was granted special permission from the government to hold a baby panda.

I'm in love ❤️🐼❤️

"Ahhh it was the cutest, greatest thing on the planet," she said of the encounter.

"You have all these maternal feelings when you're holding a little baby bear. I felt like my milk was coming in," she jokingly added. "It was so cute!"

Speaking of feeling maternal, Hudson also gushed about her two "babies," her sons Ryder, 12, and Bing, 4.

"They're both very stylish and they like their clothes," she explained. "Ryder is very hipstery, and Bing is like faux 'I only wear black' and always wear hoodies."

By the sounds of it, Ryder is a much bigger fan of dating. "He's such a tween, it's crazy," Hudson says of her son with her ex-husband, The Black Crowes' frontman Chris Robinson. "It's all girls and who likes who and what the dynamic is."

Hudson's feelings on the matter shouldn't be all that shocking, seeing as the blonde beauty previously told ETthat she isn't big on the dating scene. "I think dating is weird, so I'm not a big dater," she said earlier this month. "But then again… dating might be kinda fun. I don't know, I usually – you just connect, right? And see what happens."

"Connect" is exactly what 23-year-old Nick Jonas said he did with Hudson. The two have been seen out and about together several times in recent months, and the "Chains" singer told Complex magazine that they had a "beautiful connection."
