Jennifer Hudson + David Otunga = Engaged!

Former American Idol contestant Jennifer Hudson is engaged to David Otunga, aka Punk!

“I can confirm that Jennifer got engaged to her boyfriend David on Friday night in L.A.” her rep tells People.

Otunga, who tried to win Tiffany Pollard‘s heart on a VH1 reality show (I Love New York 2), popped the question with a Neil Lane diamond ring on the Dreamgirls Oscar winner’s 27th birthday.

Congrats to the happy couple!

    I’m sorry he looks like a player. Jennifer is probably all starry eyed & in love (nothing wrong with that) because he is probably the best looking man she has had in her life and she is going down the slippery slope to being used (I hope not though). I just hope her people makes sure she has an iron tight pre-nup before she says “I Do”.

    yeah, wth happened to her long time boyfriend!?!??!?!?! I searched for her on here,, and found quotes of her talking about him.

    In Life Magazine Feb.07:
    On her one true love: “My boyfriend, James Peyton, 27, and I have been together since 1999, so he watched me struggle to get here. There were some dark times when I’d say, ‘I can’t sing anymore. I’m not right for this.’ He’d say, ‘Jennifer, there’s no way you’re not singing. Keep it up, girl, keep it up.’ ”

    In Giant Feb/March 07:
    On her love life: “My boyfriend is my childhood sweetheart. We’ve been together since 1999! It’s crazy. I’m the dreamer and he supports my dreams – always has. He’s happy to be my rock and let me fly. I think it makes more sense to date someone outside of showbiz. He is stationary, stable, a home base. I’m on planes, here and there and always on the go. It’d be a whole different story if he was moving around, too. Instead I have a patient, understanding man who’s there for me when I get home. He’s home to me.”

    I remember watching them two getting interviewed during the Oscars, they seemed really good for each other…..this is a shock that she’s engaged to this ugly ass guy and probably only knowing him for about a year!
