Jennifer Hudson Reveals How Fiance David Otunga Proposed

Though Oscar-winning actress and Grammy-winning singer Jennifer Hudson has decided to keep her wedding date a secret, she has revealed how fiancé David Otunga proposed to her three years ago.

While promoting her new book, the ‘Dreamgirls’ star revealed to NBC’s Dateline how he ended up getting on one knee for her on her birthday.

“I remember him telling me, ‘Put on your favorite dress.’ He had birthday cards, and each card threw another hint and another hint and another hint,” she said. “And I got to the last one, and it said when you’re done reading this card, I want you to turn around and I have a birthday gift for you… I turned around and he was on his knees proposing [with a Neil Lane diamond].”

Hudson’s memoir, ‘I Got This: How I Lost What Weighed Me Down and Found Myself,’ is currently available on bookshelves today.
