The first photo of singer Jennifer Hudson and her baby boy, David Otunga Jr., was revealed today. A complete photo shoot with the happy new parents, Jennifer and fiancÃ© David Otunga, and baby will be featured in the new issue of People Magazine which hits newsstands on Friday (October 9). David Daniel Otunga Jr. was born on August 10.
The happy new mom, who refused to talk about the tragic loss of family members last year, reveals how she was able to keep her pregnancy a secret, the new baby and his future. Here are some highlights:
How hard was it keeping your pregnancy under wraps? “David and I were the only people who knew for a long time. I would forget I was pregnant, it was so easy. I didnâ€™t have any morning sickness, no cravings either. I just thought, â€˜Oh, well, weâ€™ll wait until itâ€™ll tell on itself.â€™ I didnâ€™t show until I was seven months so that made it easy right there.”
Has his personality emerged yet? “He has a lot of personality, like David. Heâ€™s always been a good sleeper. His favorite time to smile now is diaper changes. Or when he spits up on you â€“ he just cracks up like he thinks itâ€™s the funniest thing. And his bottle is his pacifier. With a pacifier, itâ€™s like he knows, â€˜Ainâ€™t nothing come out of here. No, I donâ€™t want that. Whereâ€™s the real deal?â€™ His best friend is that bottle; thatâ€™s all he wants.”
Would you be supportive if he wants to pursue a career in entertainment? “We’ll definitely encourage education. His father is an education fanatic so we definitely want him to get an education and go to school. My mom always said, ‘Whatever you want to do, I’ll support you as long as youâ€™re happy.’ So I will do the same.”
