Actress and talk-show host Jennifer Hudson took to Instagram last Saturday to share her pride and emotions as her son David Otunga Jr. graduated from middle school. She posted two images featuring photos and videos from the ceremony that saw a plane flying with a banner that read, “Congratulations DOJ! And Class of 2023!” The star’s first post showed her adjusting her son’s robe while he held his diploma, declaring: “My baby Graduated, Yal !!!!!! DOJ!!!!!!!”
Hudson’s second post presented a carousel of pictures and clips, including images of the guest families, writing: “It’s official !!! My baby is a high schooler now! We had such a wonderful day celebrating with family and friends. I am sooo proud of you DOJ! Team Jhud can yal help give DOJ a huge congratulations!” At 13, David is entering high school, and honoring so many congratulated him in the post’s comment section. Among the well-wishers are the famous actress Viola Davis and Yvette Nicole Brown.
David is Hudson’s child with ex-fiancé David Otunga, with whom she separated in 2017 after a ten-year relationship. The former couple saw turbulent times, even prompting Hudson to file an emergency order of protection against Otunga, which she later dropped. However, the proud parents put their differences aside and were both present at David’s graduation ceremony. Otunga also shared a carousel of pictures on his Instagram, which included a photo of him, Hudson, and their son captioned: “Can you believe he’s going to be a freshman?! Where does the time go?! Son, I’m so proud of your scholastic achievements, but I’m even more proud of the wonderful man you are becoming. Congratulations! #DOJGraduation.”
David Otunga Jr. is Hudson’s only child, and the proud mom’s social media was filled with delightful posts and comments during this special moment. Hudson is known for her versatile talent with an Oscar and Grammy under her belt, and now she adds to her impressive achievements- a proud mom of a high schooler.
