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!
