According to several online reports, [artist id="2481017"]Jennifer Hudson[/artist] is several months' pregnant and held a baby shower in Chicago over the weekend. Rumors of the Oscar-and-Grammy-winning singer/actress's pregnancy have been circulating for months but have been denied by her reps. The shower was reportedly held on Saturday at a relative's home.
"It was a baby shower, a quiet gathering of friends and mostly family," singer/ actress Felicia Fields, a longtime Hudson friend, reportedly told the Chicago Tribune. "They're really trying to keep it kind of quiet."
Hudson is engaged to former reality-TV star David Otunga, who is pursuing a pro-wrestling career. The pair have not publicized their wedding date.
"It was a nice time that we had," Fields said of the shower, but declined to reveal whether Hudson received blue or pink gifts, which would reveal the baby's sex. "They don't know [the gender]. More yellow [gifts]," Fields reportedly told the Tribune.
Hudson recently postponed several dates of her [article id="1608659"]tour with Robin Thicke,[/article] claiming strained vocal cords.
An "American Idol" veteran, [article id="1609377"]Hudson returned to the show[/article] in mid-April, and host Ryan Seacrest asked Hudson about her engagement to Otunga. Inquiring about when the wedding will be, Hudson demurred, "It's a secret, I can't tell nobody." After Seacrest asked her to whisper it in his ear, she leaned in and joked quietly, "Ryan, they'll hear it if I tell you."
