Celebrity pals like Usher and Mariah Carey are encouraging singer/actress Jennifer Hudson to name her unborn baby after the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson.

Windy City-born Jennifer “merely smiled coyly when several stars (including Usher and Mariah Carey) suggested she should name her soon-to-be-born baby Michael — or Michaela, if it’s a girl,” according to a scoop featured in The Chicago Sun-Times.

The heavily-pregnant Oscar & Grammy winner has never publicly confirmed reports that she is expecting, but sported an undeniable baby bump as she performed MJ’s hit single “Will You Be There” at Tuesday’s memorial at The Staples Center in Los Angeles.
