Jennifer Hudson Gets Engaged

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
People
.

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.
