Jennifer Hudson has kept mostly quiet about the tragic shootings that took the lives of her mother, nephew and her brother in 2008.

But the singer reveals a fascinating nugget in the latest issue of Ebony: she was very close being in the same house as them when the incident took place.

Turns out, fiance David Otunga called Hudson to come down and spend time with him in Florida prior to the day in question.

"I flew out to see him; that's why I'm still here," Jennifer says. "I've never said that before, and I can't believe I just said that now. But I didn't know. He was just like, 'I'm going to this wrestling thing, and it's in Tampa. I'm going out there now, so you can come out there and see me versus going home.'"

Otunga is the father of Hudson's two-year old son. Regarding the deaths of her relatives, this Oscar winner says the entire event remains a "surreal blur." That's certainly understandable.

Another round of congratulations is due for Jennifer Hudson and fiance David Otunga.

Star magazine reports the pair is expecting another child, just four months after Hudson gave birth to her first son. Man, that singer's womb is working harder than over 14% of the population in the state of Michigan!

Crude jokes aside, friends say this pregnancy wasn't planned.

“Jennifer was in total shock when she found out she was having another baby,” said a source. “She had wanted some space between the kids’ ages.”

We couldn't be happier for Jennifer and David. Join us in wishing this growing family the best!

** Update: Hudson's rep says: "Contrary to what has been falsely reported, Jennifer Hudson is not pregnant."

Motherhood suits Jennifer Hudson, the American Idol star and Oscar-winner says.

"I love being nurturing and caring because I love to see other people happy," says the Chicago native. "Who better to devote my time to than my own child?"

Jennifer gave birth to her first child, David – named after her fiancé, David Otunga – on August 10. From lullabies to bottle-feedings, she's been doing it all.

On keeping her pregnancy private: "David and I were the only people who knew for a long time. I would forget I was pregnant. I didn’t have any morning sickness, no cravings. I didn’t show until I was seven months so that made it easy."

On recovering from her c-section: "Everybody told me how much it was going to hurt afterward but I think I have a different tolerance for pain than others."

"By that night after I had the baby, I'm like, 'Look, I can’t sit in this bed anymore."

On the personality of the younger David Otunga: "He has a lot of personality, like David. He’s a good sleeper. His favorite time to smile now is diaper changes. Or when he spits up on you – he just cracks up like it’s the funniest thing."

"With a pacifier, it’s like he knows, ‘Ain’t nothing come out of here. No, I don’t want that. Where’s the real deal?’ His best friend is that bottle."

On her little guy's future career: "His father is an education fanatic so we definitely want him to go to school, get an education. My mom always said, 'Whatever you want to do, I'll support you as long as you’re happy.' So I will do the same."

Jennifer Hudson, whose live has been struck by tragedy this year, welcomed a joyous new addition to her family late Monday when she gave birth to her first child.

The Academy Award winner and American Idol reject and fiancé David Otunga are proud parents of David Otunga, Jr., who weighed in at seven pounds, 14 ounces.

Hudson, 27, never officially announced her pregnancy, although speculation began among celebrity gossip publications as she wore increasingly loose-fitting tops.

In early June, the open secret of a pregnant Hudson was revealed when longtime pal Felicia Fields admitted to having gone to her gender-neutral baby shower.

The future Mr. and Mrs. David Otunga are the proud parents of David Jr.!

Jennifer Hudson and David Otunga, a.k.a. "Punk" from I Love New York 2, got engaged last September, and waited to find out the kid's gender until his birth.

This news comes eight months after the slayings of Jennifer's mother, brother and seven-year-old cousin. Her brother-in-law, William Balfour, is in custody.

Congratulations to the happy couple!

It's no longer a question: Jennifer Hudson is pregnant.

According to The Chicago Tribune, the Oscar-winner was honored with a baby shower in the Windy City this weekend, as longtime friend Felicia Fields confirms the event took place on Saturday.

"It was a baby shower, a quiet gathering of friends and mostly family," Fields, also a singer and actress, said of a gathering in a relative's home. "They're really trying to keep it kind of quiet."

Too late for that. Sources actually say Hudson is seven months along.

This will be the first child for the former American Idol finalist and fiance David Otunga. We'd like to wish them the very, very best.

Jennifer Hudson is engaged to David Otunga.

The couple has been dating for less than one year, but you can't fight true love.

"I can confirm that Jennifer got engaged to her boyfriend David on Friday night in L.A." the former American Idol finalist's rep said.

Otunga, pictured below, was actually known as "Punk" on the reality show I Love New York 2. He was rejected by Tiffany Pollard after 10 weeks on that show.
