New mom Jennifer Hudson is as proud as they come. The Grammy-winning singer says that her two-month-old son David Daniel Otunga Jr is “the best.”
“He’s the cutest thing in the world! There are no words for it. He’s the best. It’s just amazing – us discovering each other, me becoming a mom.”
“He’s a very rare newborn,” Hudson added. “He tries a lot – he’s turning over, he’s lifting up his own head, he tries to hold his own bottle, sometimes I swear he’s talking to me, or at least trying to. The other day he said, ‘Hi!’ – I swear, I’m not crazy. David was there too, and he was like, ‘He just said, “Hi!” ‘ He’s very aware.”
And it looks like David Jr may just follow in his mom’s footsteps.
“He seems like he’s very interested in music already. The other night he was having a fit screaming, and someone turns on the music and he just stops and calms down. And I was exactly the same way as a baby,” said Hudson, who played “Let It Be Me,” her collaboration with Rod Stewart, to calm her son. “Sometimes when he cries, I try to harmonize!”
Right now, Jennifer and her fiancé David Otunga are looking forward to sharing Halloween with their newborn.
“It’s going to be ridiculous. I can’t wait,” she gushed. “His dad went and bought him some Halloween stuff the other night. I wish he was older so he could remember it, but this is the first one, so I have to go all out. It’s going to be great.”
