Jennifer Hudson is finally confirming that she is pregnant! And what an appropriate way to announce the big news – she released details about her baby shower. The Chicago Tribune is reporting that the mom-to-be was showered over the weekend at a small gathering held in a relatives home in downtown Chicago. Hudson is engaged to Harvard-educated-lawyer-turned-wrestler David Otunga.
“It was a baby shower, a quiet gathering of friends and mostly family,” said Felicia Fields, a longtime friend of the actress. “They’re really trying to keep it kind of quiet. It was a nice time that we had.”
When asked about the gender of the baby, Fields replied, “They don’t know.”
Hudson certainly deserves some good news in her life; seven months ago her mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew were murdered.
The actress, 27, has declined to divulge any details about her upcoming wedding to Otunga, but she did tell USA Today that it will be “traditional, and very, very classy. I’ll be surrounded by family and friends. I hope that when I’m 80 years old, people will still be talking about my wedding.”
In an interview with Access Hollywood earlier this year, the actress also said she plans to include her three dogs – Oscar, Grammy and Dreamgirl — in the ceremony. “Oscar might be the ring bearer. We’ll send them down the aisle with a little tux.”
Sending out congratulations to the parents-to-be!
