Jennifer Hudson has decided to show her first pic of her bundle of joy David Jr. “He’s the cutest thing in the world!” she told “There are no words for it. He’s the best. It’s just amazing – us discovering each other, me becoming a mom. He seems like he’s very interested in music already. The other night he was having a fit screaming, and someone turns on the music and he just stops and calms down. And I was exactly the same way as a baby,” said Hudson, who played “Let It Be Me,” her collaboration with Rod Stewart, to calm her son. “Sometimes when he cries, I try to harmonize!” Jennifer deserves some happiness considering all she's been through with her mother death. How hard was it keeping your pregnancy under wraps?“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.” Your son was delivered via C-section, what was your recovery like?“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.”Has his personality emerged yet?“He has a lot of personality, like David. He’s always been a good sleeper. His favorite 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.” Would you be supportive if he wants to pursue a career in entertainment?“We’ll definitely encourage education. His father is an education fanatic so we definitely want him to get an education and go to school. 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.”
