Motherhood definitely seems to agree with Jennifer Hudson, who gave birth to her first child, David – named after her fiancé, David Otunga – on Aug. 10.

“I love being nurturing and caring because I love to see other people happy,” says Hudson. “Who better to devote my time to than my own child?”

From singing lullabies (“He can be crying at the top of his lungs and just turn off like a switch”) to frequent bottle-feedings (“I’ve never seen a baby eat like he does!”), the singer (who chose not to address the tragic loss of her family members last October) offers people an intimate look into her new life as a mom.

Five months after boyfriend David Otunga proposed to Jennifer Hudson on her 27th birthday, she returned the gesture with a surprise of her own: a proposal on Otunga’s birthday.

The Grammy-winning singer did it last month with style, presenting Otunga – a Harvard-educated-lawyer-turned-pro-wrestler – with a personally designed Neil Lane engagement ring rocking out at 5 carats.

“Jennifer wanted to give him something really special when she asked David to marry her,” says Lane, who worked with Hudson for months to design the ring. “It was very sentimental and romantic … They are really in love.” Read the rest of this entry »

Donald Trump Shelters Jennifer Hudson


Donald Trump doesn’t just have the golden touch for business – he also has a heart of gold.

The real-estate mogul has been housing Jennifer Hudson and some of her relatives at the Trump International Hotel & Tower free of charge.

Found Body ‘Believed to Be’ Jennifer Hudson’s Nephew

The body of a young black boy, who is “believed to be” the missing nephew of Jennifer Hudson, was discovered Monday in a white SUV.

During a news conference on an unrelated matter, FBI Deputy Director John Pistole said the body is “believed to be” the singer’s 7-year-old nephew, Julian King, according to CNN.

The white SUV was found abandoned on Chicago’s West Side, CNN reports. The boy was shot multiple times in the back of the vehicle, according to new reports.

Police have not officially identified the body, but the Chicago Tribune reports that Hudson’s family members – assuming the worst – organized a noon church vigil.

Several Hudson family members were also expected at the medical examiner’s office Monday afternoon to identify the body. Police Supt. Jody Weis plans to hold a press conference at 4 p.m.

The Chicago Police Department issued the following statement before noon Monday: “At approximately 7:06 A.M. a 1994 White Chevrolet Suburban bearing Illinois license plate X584859 and identified in the Amber Alert was located at 1313 S. Kolin. A body was discovered inside the Suburban, in the rear seat of the vehicle. Identification of the body will be made by the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office following their examination. The vehicle is being processed for evidence and the investigation remains on-going.”

Julian King, 7, went missing Friday after an unidentified assailant fatally shot Hudson’s mother Darnell and brother Jason. Hudson offered $100,000 for the safe return of her nephew.

Barack Obama Offers Support to Jennifer Hudson

While family and friends mourn the tragic death of Jennifer Hudson’s mother and brother, who were shot and killed Friday, support for the singer continues to pour in. Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama, who shares the same Chicago hometown as the singer, issued a statement Saturday.

“Michelle and I were absolutely heartbroken to learn about this unimaginable tragedy and we want Jennifer to know that she is in our thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time,” the Illinois senator said. “We also pray for the swift and safe return of her young nephew.”

Hudson sang the national anthem during the Democratic National Convention in August after a personal request from Obama’s camp.

“That was the biggest honor, I feel like, in my career – one of the greatest moments,” Hudson told people earlier this month. “I had to separate myself emotionally so I didn’t get too emotional while I was singing because I can’t sing and cry at the same time…. I was lucky to be a part of it.”

“She has done so much for the campaign. Everyone here was just so shocked and saddened,” Obama’s campaign said about Hudson in a statement issued to people.

Meanwhile, American Idol judge Randy Jackson also shared his condolences for Hudson and expressed his disbelief of what authorities are calling a double homicide.

“My heart and soul goes out to her and the rest of her family,” Jackson tells people. “Such a huge tragedy – I can’t even believe that it’s possible. Paula Abdul and I were just talking about it yesterday and it’s just so sad.”

Jackson also says he has reached out to the singer since news of the tragedy broke. “I left a couple of messages for her and I’m just trying to give to her whatever I can. My God. The world is an ugly place right now.”
