According to several online reports,
"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 tour with Robin Thicke, claiming strained vocal cords.
An "American Idol" veteran, Hudson returned to the show 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."
