Jennifer Hudson is passing her love of music – and her Grammy-winning talent – on to her 2 1/2-year-old son David. The 30-year-old star talks music and motherhood in a new interview with Parade.com – and dishes on her wedding plans as well!
On her musical son: “He’s growing up with a musical background and music is a huge part of our household. It’s a huge way I communicate with him. He didn’t want to go to bed the other day and wanted to sing for me. He tried to grab the mic stand and perform ‘Proud Mary’— not that knew all the words! But he got enough of it and did a good job. He really responds. When I perform, he’ll tell me if he thinks I did good.”
On how motherhood has surprised her: “It made me realize how much my mom loved me and how much patience it takes. I think of the things my mom did for me and so I have to do it for my son. Now that I have a child, I get it. I get the example she set. It’s not always easy but it’s for love. You realize how much you can love and how much you give up for your child as a parent. I’m learning that through him.”
On her upcoming wedding: “My son won’t have it any other way: he’ll definitely be a part of it. Maybe he’ll even sing!”
