Kate Hudson may wear her heart on her sleeve, but she wears her football fandom on her upper left arm.

Just check it out: During her visit to TODAY Monday, the co-star of "Kung Fu Panda 3" showed up in a sleeveless top that prominently showed her toned arms ... one of which was wrapped in a temporary tattoo that read "Broncos."

Conveniently, the Denver football team has just secured its spot at Super Bowl 50 against the Carolina Panthers.

"I'm a big Peyton Manning fan," she said of the team's quarterback. "And I grew up in Colorado. So when Peyton Manning found his way [to] the Broncos, our whole family was like aaaah!'"

Turns out she's the kind of fan who jumps up and down during games. "I do," she told anchor Matt Lauer. "Well, I grew up with three boys, that's what we do."

Speaking of boys, her 12-year-old son Ryder was probably as excited as she was to have hear appear in "Kung Fu Panda 3." But having an adolescent son (her other child is 4-year-old Bingham) means she has had plenty of time to sharpen skills other than acting.

"The best thing I probably do is — I'll say I'm a pretty darn good parent," she said. "I got good kids."

But having kids means she's learned things about herself. "Ryder's turning out to be — I'm really super proud of him. And I had something to do with that, so I think parenting is where I feel probably my strongest."

That said, she's holding her breath a little longer for the final decision. "Then we get to 18. We'll see what happens," she grinned.

"Kung Fu Panda 3" opens in theaters on Friday, January 29.
