Jennifer Hudson Gets Engaged

Jennifer Hudson Gets Engaged According to, Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson is engaged to boyfriend David Otunga who she’s been dating for little under a year:

Jennifer Hudson and boyfriend, David Otunga, have gotten engaged, her rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

“I can confirm that Jennifer got engaged to her boyfriend David on Friday night in L.A.” says the rep.

Otunga, who is known as “Punk” from the reality show I Love New York 2, popped the question with a Neil Lane diamond ring on the Dreamgirls Oscar winner’s 27th birthday.

The couple, who have been dating less than a year, both hail from Chicago.

Professionally, it is a busy time for Hudson as well. Her debut solo album, Jennifer Hudson, will be in stores Sept. 30, and her next film, The Secret Life of Bees opens on Oct. 17.

No doubt, this one will raise a few eyebrows. In any case, congratulations to Jennifer and David.

Any thoughts?

    Hmmm…Oscar winner and reality TV star?!?! Who would’ve thought! They do make a nice couple regardless.

    David “Punk” really lucked out on this one!

    But congrats to them…

    I’m happy for her, because it’s a dream come true for most women (marriage, that is). But what happened to her long-time boyfriend James, I think was his name. Funny how when some people make it, they leave the ones who were there through it all . . . . .

    Nonetheless . . . Congratulations JHud

    Beyonce was with someone for 7 or 8 years Dangerously in Love was about him ( She said so in interviews back in the day). When DC blew up she left

    Why didn’t you post her new song Pocketbook? It leaked a while ago.
