Here's the Reason Jennifer Hudson and Fiancé David Otunga Aren't Married Yet
Jennifer Hudson is in no rush to get to her wedding day. The Oscar winner and American Idol alum has been with fiancé David Otunga since 2008, and-despite being engaged for nearly nine years-they're in no hurry to tie the knot. The actress' time on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week just confirmed it.
"I'm not in a hurry," Hudson said when DeGeneres asked her if she was in any rush to get married, according to Us Weekly. "He's not going anywhere." Hudson did, however, confirm that the couple, who have a seven-year-old son together, is completely happy and in love. In other words, Hudson may be the most laid-back bride-to-be we've ever encountered. Or she's just planning and most incredible celebration ever!
The actress did confess that she does come down with the occasional bought of wedding fever-especially when she's recently attended other couples' nuptials, like Ciara and Russell Wilson's wedding in England last summer. "It's been a thought obviously," she said at the time. "After being at Ciara's wedding, I'm like, okay. I don't know, it inspired something. I just loved her dress. It was so beautiful. So that made me say, okay, all [of] my friends and peers are married now. You know what I mean?"
We have to admit we do. Because there's no better way to give yourself wedding fever than to attend all the prettiest weddings…and we know for a fact Ciara and Russell Wilson's day was absolutely fever-inducing. And Hudson is 100 percent right about the bride's gorgeous dress!
