J-Hud was looking real good on Oprah yesterday, seemingly more mature and more healed from her ordeal:
Most new mothers will take any opportunity to show off photographs of their bundle of joy, and Jennifer Hudson was certainly no exception, as she proudly shared her snaps of her baby boy David with Oprah Winfrey. Speaking to the Queen of Chat on her show yesterday, the singer cooed over recent photos of her four-month-old son and revealed that she is planning to make his first Christmas a special one. She said: ‘I’m going to go crazy. He’s very aware but he’s so young and it’s his first Christmas, so you have to go all-out.’
She said she would like to get him his own Santa and toy store, and added: ‘I kind of want to get him his own Santa Claus and just have like a toy store in the house, full of things.’ Hudson, 28, gave birth to David Daniel – named after his father, Jennifer’s fiancé David Otunga, a lawyer-turned-WWE wrestler – in August this year.
He was born almost a year after the tragic murders of the Oscar-winner’s 57-year-old mother, Darnell Donnerson, her 29-year-old brother, Jason Hudson and seven-year-old nephew Justin King. Police arrested William Balfour, 27, the estranged husband of Hudson’s sister Julia, in connection with the killings, and he was charged with three counts of first degree murder and is currently awaiting trial.
Hudson shot to fame after she came in third on reality TV show American Idol, the US version of the X Factor, in 2004. Hudson has been a regular guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show, and gave the chat show host her first interview since the family murders in February of this year. On yesterday’s show, after gushing about baby David to Oprah and her other guests, country music duo, Sugarland, she joined the pair on stage for a rendition of the Christmas carol, Silent Night.
The little whipper snapper is adorable. It’s weird, but going through turmoil and then having a child can be such a relief.
