Jennifer Hudson was in a relationship with former wrestler David Otunga for ten years, including a son together, before their split in 2017. Prior to the split, and the revelation that Hudson took out a protective order against Otunga, the two were engaged for some time.
Hudson told Wendy Williams, speaking of why they hadn't yet married at the time, "Well, the ring is still there and we will get married one day but again, my thing is, once I get married, I don't believe in divorce. And so when I get married, it's for good. We want to be completely sure we're together, we're happy and when it's time…I think that's the key, take baby steps." When Williams pointed out that having a kid and being together for almost a decade goes beyond baby steps, she explained, "That's my definition of baby steps!"
Prior to the couples' split, sources told Radar Online that the couple were rarely together and previously got cold feet. "They were originally planning to tie the knot in October 2010, but it was called off," an insider said. "At this point, it doesn't seem like a wedding will ever happen." And now we know that's definitely the case.
