Jennifer Hudson and her 4 month old son David Daniel Otunga Jr.

Singer/actress Jennifer Hudson sat down with Oprah Winfrey yesterday and showed off new photos of her four month old son David Jr. and told the talk show queen that little David’s first Christmas is going to be very special! She says she’s pulling out all of the stops and going all out.

She said: “I’m going to go crazy. He’s very aware but he’s so young and it’s his first Christmas, so you have to go all-out.” And she said she would like to get him his own Santa and toy store, and added: “I kind of want to get him his own Santa Claus and just have like a toy store in the house, full of things.”

Hudson, 28, gave birth to David Daniel – named after his father, Jennifer’s fiancé David Otunga, a lawyer-turned-WWE wrestler – in August this year. He was born almost a year after the tragic murders of the Oscar-winner’s 57-year-old mother, Darnell Donnerson, her 29-year-old brother, Jason Hudson and seven-year-old nephew Justin King.

Police arrested William Balfour, 27, the estranged husband of Hudson’s sister Julia, in connection with the killings, and he was charged with three counts of first degree murder and is currently awaiting trial.

Hudson shot to fame after she came third on reality TV show American Idol, the US version of the X Factor, in 2004. In February 2007 she won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her film debut in the 2006 film Dreamgirls. Later that year, she landed a part in the Sex and the City movie as Louise, Carrie Bradshaw’s assistant and in September 2008 she announced her engagement to Otunga. The following month she released her debut eponymous album which was received to critical acclaim and won Hudson a Grammy Award.


It’s good to see Jennifer Hudson as happy as she is! We’re sure that baby came at the most perfect time in her life and she looks like she’s going to be a great mom.
