Movie star Kate Hudson's decision to name her new-born baby RYDER RUSSELL ROBINSON has left the ALMOST FAMOUS star's estranged father heartbroken.

BILL HUDSON is angry that the tot's middle name is Russell - a tribute to actor Kurt Russell, who raised Kate with her mother and his longtime partner Goldie Hawn.

Bill, who was not invited to Kate's wedding to rocker Chris Robinson, hopes he can repair his relationship with the 24-year-old and be granted access to his grandson.

He says, "I would love to have a relationship with my grandchild. I'm hurt by a lot of what has transpired in the last year because we were getting it on track behind the scenes, not in the public eye."
