Shortly after sharing the post, fans and followers took to the comments section where they left lovely notes about the adorable photos. One user wrote, "This is too cute!" while another added, "He is adorable." Many others left birthday wishes.

In 2019, Hudson and Otunga reached a child custody agreement.

Hudson welcomed David Jr. in August 2009 during her relationship with former wrestler, David Otunga Sr. Over time, she has consistently proven to have a sweet relationship with her son.


Hudson reportedly once revealed that David Jr. shares her passion for music and the singer could not be more proud of her little boy.

Despite his interest in music, Hudson and Otunga have decided to keep their son away from the spotlight as they try to give him a normal childhood.


Hudson reportedly met her ex-fiance in 2008 when Otunga appeared on the reality show, "I Love New York 2." Shortly after, the duo began a romantic relationship and on Hudson's 27th birthday, Otunga proposed. The couple remained engaged for several years.

In 2017, Hudson and Otunga ended their relationship and this was followed by an acrimonious child custody battle which began when the singer requested a protective order against her ex-fiance.


Hudson once accused Otunga of exhibiting aggressive and threatening behavior towards the end of their relationship. Otunga, however, denied the allegations and after investigations were carried out, he was cleared of all charges.

In 2019, Hudson and Otunga reached a child custody agreement and although very little detail was released to the public, they seem to have a friendly relationship and now enjoy splitting time with their son!
