Tragedy struck the Oscar-winning actress last October when her mother, brother and nephew were murdered. But sources tell ESSENCE.com that star is about to start an exciting new chapter in her life.
Internet rumors have been circulating that Jennifer Hudson is pregnant. While her manager and publicist deny the rumors, two sources close to the Oscar and Grammy winner confirm exclusively to ESSENCE.com that she is indeed expecting. This would be the first child for Hudson.
Hudson, who is currently receiving rave reviews while on tour with Robin Thicke, is engaged to David Otunga, a Harvard Law graduate and former contestant on "I Love New York 2." The couple plans to marry sometime soon, but hasn't confirmed a wedding date.
Tragedy struck the singer last October when her mother, brother and nephew were murdered. Hudson made a triumphant return to the spotlight on February 1 when she sang "The Star-Spangled Banner" at the Super Bowl. She went on to win her first Grammy Award for best R&B album on February 8.
Hudson is on tour through May 8. Her next show is April 23 at the Fox Theatre in St. Louis, Missouri.
