Singer Jennifer Hudson introduces her 2-month old baby boy David Daniel Otunga Jnr in an upcoming issue of PEOPLE magazine. The new mum also took some time out to answer a few questions by the magazine.
On how hard it was keeping her pregnancy secret:
Jennifer: David and I were the only people who knew for a long time. 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.
On how she recovered after delivering David via Caesarean:
J: Everybody told me how much it was going to hurt afterwards but I think I have a different tolerance for pain than others. 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.
On if David’s personality has started to emerge:
J: He has a lot of personality, like David [Otunga, his dad and Jennifer’s fiancé]. He’s always been a good sleeper. His favourite time to smile now is diaper changes. Or when he spits up on you – he just cracks up like he thinks it’s the funniest thing. And his bottle is his pacifier. With a pacifier, it’s like he knows, ‘Ain’t nothing come out of here. No, I don’t want that. Where’s the real deal?’ His best friend is that bottle; that’s all he wants.
