JenniferHudson has proudly shown off her newborn son, David Daniel Otunga Jr. In a photo released by People, the singer is seen lying down while the 7-week-old baby is put on her chest. "I love being nurturing and caring because I love to see other people happy," she said in an interview with the magazine about being a new mother. "Who better to devote my time to than my own child?"
Asked about what she and her fiance David Otunga have planned for the future of their son`s career, she revealed, "We`ll definitely encourage education." She then added, "My mom always said, `Whatever you want to do, I`ll support you as long as you`re happy.` So I will do the same." Additionally, Jennifer thought his son inherited most of his father`s characters, saying "He has a lot of personality, like David."
During the interview, Jennifer was also willing to explain the moments when she and David kept her pregnancy under wraps. "David and I were the only people who knew for a long time," she claimed. "I would forget I was pregnant, it was so easy. I didn`t have any morning sickness, no cravings either. I just thought, `Oh, well, we`ll wait until it`ll tell on itself.` I didn`t show until I was seven months so that made it easy right there."
Talking about her recovery after delivering the baby via C-section on August 10, Jennifer explained, "Everybody told me how much it was going to hurt afterwards but I think I have a different tolerance for pain than others." Furthermore, she told People, "By that night after I had the baby, I`m like, `Look, I can`t sit in this bed anymore. I`ve got to get up!` I`ve been up and about since he was born. To me, the pain is no different than when you work out a muscle you`ve never worked out before and it`s sore."
