Jennifer Hudson expecting first child

Close friends host baby shower in Chicago

Jennifer Hudson is expecting her first child with fiancé David Otunga, it has been reported.

The Oscar-winning actress-singer has so far refused to comment on the rumours of her pregnancy, but a close friend confirmed that a baby shower took place in Chicago on Saturday (May 30).

Felicia Fields says that guests brought “mostly yellow” gifts to the event, which was attended by just a few friends and family. The couple are reportedly trying to keep the news quiet and do not know yet if she is expecting a girl or boy, reports People.

Hudson, 27, lost her mother, brother and nephew in an alleged triple murder last year.

William Balfour is the only suspect in the murder case since the bodies of Hudson‘s mother, Darnell Hudson Donerson, and older brother Jason were discovered in the Hudson family home on Chicago’s South Side in October 2008.

Seven-year-old Julian King’s body was found in an SUV some days later. All died from gunshot wounds.
