"I Officially Have A Teenager"

Jennifer Hudson officially has a teenager on her hands! The recording artist took to Instagram on Wednesday (Aug. 10) to commemorate her son David Otunga Jr.’s thirteenth birthday.


“Can the entire team Jhud and the world stop what you are doing and wish my son a very happy 13th bday on (sic) today,” Jennifer asked her fans with excitement. “I officially have a teenager,” the celebrity mom further exclaimed. “Wow,” Hudson continued. “Turn up my baby! I will forever celebrate you.”

David Otunga Jr. is Jennifer Hudson’s son with David Otunga Sr. Many fans found it hard to accept little David’s latest developmental milestone as they remember when he was a little boy. “He’s so grown up,” Michael Orland shared. “It’s amazing,” the artist exclaimed. “God bless your boy and you.” Another of Jennifer’s supporters wrote, “Happy Birthday, Munch! Your mommy always throws you the best birthday parties! Whoop whoop.”

Jennifer certainly gave her son one of the best birthday parties a teen could desire. The celebrity mom went all out with a beautifully crafted cake and a few Go Karts for David Jr. to enjoy. The youngster smiled from ear to ear while testing the limits of the Go Karts. “He’s gotten so tall,” one fan said after viewing pictures and video clips from David Jr.’s birthday bash.

Young David is finding his way while having a famous mom who is both an excellent singer as well as a great actress. “He’s very much his own person, Hudson said of her son during an interview in 2020. “[He is] a little performer who loves to sing and dance,” the recording artist shared.

David’s vocal abilities were put on display when he was younger. The little one sang in perfect tune as his mom recorded what later went on her social media page. David Jr. also took after his father in the way of wrestling when he was younger.

Will David Jr. continue down the path of athleticism in the coming years? Fans will just have to keep up with Jennifer Hudson and her son to find out!
