The How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days star took to Instagram to mark the special day with a picture of her as a youngster cuddling Kurt as they lay back on a bed.
The Overboard actor is cradling her head as they appear to be watching television together.
Kate, 43, who is estranged from her biological father Bill Hudson and was raised by mum Goldie, 76, and her long-time partner Kurt, 71, captioned the throwback photo with an earnest and gushing tribute to Kurt’s qualities – including his great hair (which is entirely fair enough).
‘Fun, adventurous, passionate, determined, honest, devoted, amazing father and the best head of hair in Los Angeles!’ she wrote, adding: ‘Lucky us! Love you Pa! Happy Father’s Day.’
Many of Kate’s pals commented on her loving post, including pal Drew Barrymore who posted, pretty accurately: ‘Wow this one almost hurts it’s so sweet.’
Mum Goldie was also appreciative, commenting: ‘Honey this picture speaks volumes ❤️❤️❤️’
She then returned to her daughter’s post a couple of hours later, having shown it to Kurt, and shared his devastatingly cute reply.
The Hateful Eight star was apparently pretty moved, having not seen the photo before, and praised daughter Kate right back.
‘Honey I showed this to daddy,’ Goldie began. ‘Here’s his message… “Birdie, mommy just showed me this picture, this perfect Father’s Day present. I’ve never seen it before. Wow…it’s a killer.

‘Lotta water under the bridge…it’s kinda hard to see it though cause all that water seems to somehow have found its way into my eyes…thanks for making me the luckiest father in the world sweetheart. I love you, Pa.”’
Goldie and Kurt have been in a relationship since 1983, having first met working on Disney film The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band in 1966.

They reconnected in the 1980s while working on the movie Swing Shift.
Prior to their romance, Goldie was married to actor and director Gus Trikonis and then musician Bill Hudson, with whom she had son Oliver and daughter Kate.
Their divorce was finalised in 1982.
Kurt and Goldie also share son Wyatt together who was born in 1986.

Almost Famous actress Kate previously spoke out about her estrangement from dad Bill, calling it a ’41-year-old issue’ last year as she spoke about potentially reconnecting with Bill’s other children and wanting to ‘heal some of the wounds’ in her relationship with the musician.
Kate is mum to three children – three-year-old daughter Rani with her musician fiancé Danny Fujikawa, 36, along with sons Ryder, 18, and Bingham, 10 from previous relationships.
She also shared Father’s Day tributes to both ‘amazing daddy’ Danny and her brothers Oliver and Wyatt, who she labelled ‘the other best dads in the world’.
