JHud's A Mommy!

Jennifer Hudson welcomed a baby boy Monday, adding mother to her ever-growing titles.

Jennifer Hudson has a healthy baby boyWho's one of our favorite American Idol alums, an Academy Award-winner, a Grammy Award-winner and all around talented people? Miss Hudson, that's who.

And we're thrilled to hear about her having her baby!

Joining the ranks of Elisabeth Hasselbeck in an already star-studded mama delivery week, Jennifer's the proud mother of a baby boy.

Jennifer Hudson's first child, David Daniel Otunga, Jr, was born on August 10 weighing 7-pounds, 14-ounces. Her fiance is David Otunga, a contestant on I Love New York 2.

Her publicist said, "The baby is beautiful and perfect. His parents are ecstatic."

And we couldn't be more ecstatic for the singer and actress who sadly lost several members of her family last year. You may recall that Hudson's mother, brother and nephew were killed last year in a shooting. Sadness aside, Hudson has proved she has staying power and the ability to triumph through a tragedy.

She has had quite a year! After turning down the opportunity to sing The Star Spangled Banner at President Obama's inauguration on January 20, Hudson dazzled us with her comeback at the Superbowl.

Then, she raked in Grammy gold soon thereafter with her first album, Jennifer Hudson. After making a splash with her role in the Sex and the City Movie and let's not forget, her scene stealing performance a few years ago in Dreamgirls, it seems the future is very bright for the starlet whose family just added joy and hope.

She is an amazing woman as well as very very talented. The tragedy is unspeakable. It should have received more news time but others thought something else was more important. This woman lost most of her family. It is so sad. Yet, she triumphs with the birth of her son who will have the spirit of all three. My grandpa once told my mother in a letter that is "through trials and tribulations that make men great". She is living proof of that.

I am glad Jennifers baby boy is healthy but this another example of a single woman having a child out of wedlock - who sets the example for our young women - I guess not the stars who we spend our money on buying their CD's.
