Tragedy took a backseat as the Oscar winner and fiancé David Otunga welcomed David Daniel Otunga Jr. late Monday, E! News confirms. The tot weighed in at 7 pounds, 14 ounces.
The 27-year-old former American Idol contestant never officially announced her pregnancy, although speculation began when she wore increasingly loose-fitting tops. In early June, her longtime friend Felicia Fields admitted to having attended Hudson's gender-neutral baby shower in their hometown of Chicago.
Hudson and Otunga decided to wait to find out the tyke's sex until his birthday.
Congrats to Jennifer and David.
