Jennifer Hudson Headed To Chicago

Jennifer Hudson Headed To Chicago

Academy Award-winner Jennifer Hudson is moving back to the Windy City – her hometown of Chicago, Ill. – to be closer to family, reports Monsters & Critics.

Hudson and fiancé David Otunga welcomed son David Daniel Otunga Jr. just over a year ago, and want their son to experience growing up with their extended family around. Hudson, whose mother, sister, and nephew were brutally murdered in 2008, said of the move,

With the baby growing up, we want him to be around our family. We feel so secluded. Both David and I are the babies of the family, and we want to be home with our families as well.”

The singer/actress, who turns 29 in just a few days, said of her son, “I have got the sweetest little baby in the world. He just got two new teeth, so he smiles with them now – he pokes them out there, like, ‘Look at my teeth’.”

Hudson, who famously dropped 56lbs. since the birth of David Jr., then reconfirmed her plans for a second child, “I definitely want to have another one. I want to have a little girl, maybe in three or four years from now.”

    It was Jennifer’s brother, not sister that was murdered.

    Jennifer and David are from Chicago. That is their home, and if home is where the heart is then that is where they should be. With these two family is always first. Yes alot of bad memories are there, but so are alot of very good ones as well. I wish the two the very best to come(good luck). Please babygirl keep your head up.
