Surprise! Less than a year after they began dating, Jennifer Hudson and David “Punk”
Otunga are engaged. He popped the question with a Neil Lane diamond ring on her
27th birthday.

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

Jennifer appears to flaunt the sparkler in this photo, taken at a tribute to Patti
LaBelle on Saturday at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles.

You didn’t really think J-Hud would go back to her longtime boo James Peyton, did
you? Although she and Punk, both from Chicago, keep a low profile together, at least
he should be accustomed to being in the spotlight enough where he can handle a rising
star like J-Hud. Her self-titled debut solo album drops Sept. 30, and her next film,
“The Secret Life of Bees,” opens on Oct. 17.

Congrats to the lovebirds! Even if it seems pretty sudden.
