Jennnifer Hudson is seven months pregnant with her first child, a longtime friend of the Grammy/Oscar-winning 27-year-old told The Chicago Tribune over the weekend.
The singer/actress has been laughing off rumors that she and fiance David Otunga are expecting since reports first surfaced in an April report from Essence Magazine.
But according to the star’s pal Felicia Fields, Jennifer celebrated the baby’s arrival with at a relative’s home in her native Chicago, Illinois on Saturday, May 30.
“It was a baby shower, a quiet gathering of friends and mostly family. They’re really trying to keep it kind of quiet. It was a nice time that we had,” Felicia told The Tribune on Sunday.
Jennifer and David are determined to keep the sex of the baby a secret – with guests at the party lavishing her with neutral coloured gifts.
“They don’t know (the gender).”
