Jennifer Hudson's ex, David Otunga proudly taught their 11-year-old son how to lift weights in a new video on Instagram. The doting father lovingly showed his boy the proper techniques for a chest workout.


Jennifer Hudson's ex, David Otunga is grooming their son David Jr. to follow in his fitness footsteps. Last week, the former wrestler shared a video of him teaching the 11-year-old how to lift weights.

The clip titled, "Lil David's Inaugural Chest Workout," saw the father-son duo at the gym. The young boy was holding a dumbbell in each hand and lying on a weight bench while his dad stood at his head, guiding him on the proper techniques to use.

After David Jr.'s first round of weight lifting, his father proudly asked him how his session went and he replied enthusiastically. The former wrestler then took the position of lifting weights as his son watched closely.

The "Dreamgirls" star [Hudson] and Otunga were together for 10 years before they called off their engagement.


Another scene of the clip saw the duo flex their muscles and flaunt their broad chests in the mirror. The intimate father-son moment received thousands of likes as fans celebrated the tight bond between them. An impressed user gushed:


"This must be a serious PROUD DAD MOMENT!!! I am living for this! All."

Other fans praised the "A Madea Family Funeral" star for showing up consistently as a father to his son.


Otunga and Hudson welcomed their son on August 10, 2009, while they were still engaged. The duo kept Hudson's pregnancy a secret until her stomach began bulging at seven months. At the time of her son's birth, the proud mother spoke about how much he took after his dad, saying:

"He has a lot of personality, like David. He's always been a good sleeper. His favorite time to smile now is diaper changes."


The "Dreamgirls" star and Otunga were together for 10 years before they called off their engagement. Their split was followed by a lengthy custody battle for David Jr.

The court battle began in November that year when Hudson filed a restraining order against the "WWE Next" star after claiming domestic violence as the reason behind their split.


However, Otunga's attorney denied all allegations of abuse, saying his ex-fiancée was using the protective order to "gain an unfair advantage."

The duo went at it for almost two years until they finally reached a custody agreement in 2019. Unfortunately, details of their custody agreement were not released as they both signed a gag order in 2017 preventing them from speaking about the case in public.
