Jennifer Hudson To Name Baby After Michael Jackson!?



Word has it that the very pregnant Jennifer Hudson might name her upcoming baby (boy or girl, still don’t know) after MJ. Michael Jackson Otunga-Hudson… it has a kinda nice ring to it.

From the Chicago Sun-Times:

“A very pregnant Jennifer Hudson — who certainly wowed everyone with her great rendition of Michael Jackson’s ‘‘Will You Be There” at the memorial service Tuesday — merely smiled coyly and said nothing when several stars (including Usher and Mariah Carey) suggested she should name her soon-to-be-born baby Michael, or Michaela if it’s a girl.”

I don’t know what exactly it means that Jennifer “smiled coyly” when the suggestion was made, but I tend to think that the smile was meant to mask what she was really thinking: shut the heck up about my baby’s name already, Usher.

Still, there might be something to the celebrity gossip. I’m not a gambling man, but I’d bet that the odds of J-Hud naming her baby after Michael will go down significantly as times passes. Not that the chances were all that good to begin with.

One thing’s for sure, I have no doubt that there will be a significant spike in the number of babies named Michael in 2009.
