Jennifer Hudson Welcomes New Baby Boy

Jennifer Hudson and fiancé David Otunga welcomed a new baby boy to the family on Monday. David Daniel Otunga Jr. was named after his father and weighed in at 7 pounds, 14 ounces.


Former American Idol contestant and Grammy winner Jennifer Hudson and her fiancé are “ecstatic” over the birth of their first child. “The baby is beautiful and perfect,” Hudson’s publicist said in a statement to the press.

Jennifer Hudson never discussed her pregnancy in the public eye, even after it became obvious she was expecting. Harvard Law graduate David Otunga proposed to Hudson on her 27th birthday, less than six months after they began dating. Ortunga is currently a wrestler for Florida Championship Wrestling.

In October of 2008, Hudson’s mother, Darnell Donerson, brother Jason and nephew Julian King were shot and killed in Chicago. William Balfour, the estranged husband of Hudson’s sister Julia, is the primary suspect in the murders. He is currently being held in jail awaiting trial.
