Jennifer Hudson is excited to move ahead with wedding plans now that the case of her family’s brutal 2009 murder has been closed.
"That was something that was hanging over our heads for so long, and now we feel like we can finally breathe a sigh of relief," Jen’s fiance, David Otunga, told People magazine. "Everything is good now."
Near the top of Jen’s agenda is locking down details of her big day with David. No matter what they wind up doing, he knows that their son, David Jr., "will definitely be a huge part of it."
It’s that dedication to her child that lets David know he’s got a keeper. "I’m blessed to have such a wonderful woman in my life who cares for our child so lovingly," said David. "It’s made me love her just that much more."
Jen added, "I care for my child like my mommy cared for me."
Not unlike her mother, Jen is a working mom. This week she performed at the Samsung Hope For Children Gala in New York City, where she performed a medley in tribute to Whitney Houston.
