Jennifer Hudson, 27, welcomed her first child, David Daniel Otunga Jr., on Monday, according to her publicist, Lisa Kasteler of WKT Public Relations. He is named after her fiance, David Otunga. The baby weighed 7 pounds, 14 ounces.
“The baby is beautiful and perfect,” Jennifer’s publicist, Lisa Kasteler, said. “His parents are ecstatic.”
Jennifer had not confirmed she was expecting before announcing news of the birth.
Jennifer endured a family tragedy last fall when her mother, brother and nephew were killed in her native Chicago. Her sister’s estranged husband is charged with the killings.
