Lil baby David Otunga has never seen the “overweight version” of his mommy:
Singer Jennifer Hudson has revealed her young son does not recognize photos of her when she was overweight. The star has lost 80 pounds with Weight Watchers and exercise and is now just a size six. Saying that the new her ‘feels like a doll that I get to dress up’, she also admits the old her is a mystery to her two-year-old son David Jr.
‘He’s never known me overweight,’ she told Good Housekeeping magazine. ‘If he sees a clip of the old Jennifer from Dreamgirls, he doesn’t know who it is.’ She says it was becoming a mother that first drove her to gain control of her ballooning weight. ‘Everything changed the day my son was born,’ she says. ‘Motherhood brought tremendous responsibilities – none greater than the obligation I felt to get healthy and be there for my son.
‘David deserved to have a mama who could run after him without getting wounded or tired, to have a role model who could teach him to make healthy food choices. ‘I needed him to grow up with a mama who always would be there for him by caring enough about herself to take control of her health and her eating.’ Now, her weight loss has rubbed off on the rest of her large Chicago-based family.
‘Over 75 of them are on Weight Watchers, and they’ve lost over 2,000 pounds altogether,’ she says proudly. ‘My cousin beat me – she’s lost 112 pounds!’
Wait, size six?? We thought she said she was a size zero. SMH.
