Jennifer Hudson Welcomes a Son

Jennifer Hudson於2009/08/10產下一子,母子均安!

It's official: Though she remained mum over the last nine months Jennifer Hudson is, indeed, a mom.

The Oscar-winning actress and Grammy-winning singer, 27, welcomed son David Daniel Otunga Jr. on Monday, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

"The baby is beautiful and perfect," says Hudson's rep Lisa Kasteler. "His parents are ecstatic."

David weighed 7 lbs., 14 oz., at birth and is the first child for Hudson and her fiancé David Otunga. The couple kept the sex of the baby a delivery surprise.

"Congratulations!" Hudson's Dreamgirls costar Jamie Foxx tells ET Canada. "I wonder if he came out singing? Probably."

Throughout the duration of her pregnancy, Hudson refused to confirm or deny that she was an expectant mother, instead allowing her burgeoning bump to speak for itself. As late as last month, she took the stage in Los Angeles to perform "Will You Be There" at the public memorial for Michael Jackson.

Her relative silence didn't stop colleagues from sending their well-wishes, however. Anika Noni Rose predicted in June that her Dreamgirls costar would go on to be a phenomenal mother, telling PEOPLE that David Jr. would be "much loved."

Roger Friedman of Showbiz411 was the first to break the news of David's arrival.

Exclusive: Jennifer Hudson Has a Boy!

Exclusive: It’s official! Oscar winner and “American Idol” star Jennifer Hudson gave birth to a baby boy late yesterday. His name is David Daniel Otunga, Jr., named for his father and Hudson’s fiancee. Hudson tells me he weighed in at seven pounds, fourteen ounces. And Jennifer and David, Sr., by the way, did not know the sex of the baby in advance. They bought blue and pink clothes, just in case!

Hudson’s pregnancy has been an unusual one for a star. For one thing, she never announced it. She simply turned up “showing” at a concert last winter and let the fans speculate for themselves.

Part of this was privacy, some of it was superstition, but most of it had to do with the terrible tragedy she and her family underwent last October. The murders of her mother, brother and nephew were beyond comprehension. But Jennifer, who is basically a positive person, turned lemons into lemonade. She and fiancee Otunga conceived a child soon after the episode.

So many congrats to Jennifer and David Otunga. The other day her recording of “The Star Spangled Banner,” which had been included on the second collection of songs for the Obama inauguration, shuffled up on my Zen XFi (no iPods here). It was magnificent. Hudson has the potential to be the Aretha or Gladys of this generation. And now she’ll be a mom, too.

P.S. Note to paparazzi: Hudson is not where you think she is, so just forget it. By the time you read this, she and David Jr. will be snug as a bug in a rug far from prying eyes!
