Jennifer Hudson is expecting her first child.
A baby shower was held Saturday in her native Chicago, The Chicago Tribune reported. It was “a quiet gathering of friends and mostly family,” said Jennifer’s longtime friend, Felicia Fields. “They’re really trying to keep it kind of quiet. It was a nice time that we had.”
Asked if Jennifer, 27, received blue or pink gifts, Felicia told the paper, “They don’t know [the gender]. More yellow.”
Jennifer, who is engaged to Harvard Law grad David Otunga, told Access Hollywood earlier this year: “I definitely want a family. You know, I’m almost 30 now, so they gotta get started sometime.”
The baby news comes seven months after the tragic deaths of her mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew, who were murdered last October.
