Jennifer Hudson Proudly Marks Son David’s Middle School Graduation as He Embarks on High School Journey

Jennifer Hudson, who is already an EGOT recipient, has another reason to celebrate as her son, David Daniel Otunga Jr., recently achieved a significant milestone. Following his middle school commencement ceremony, the 13-year-old received heartfelt congratulations from his mother, who shared several photos of the special day on Instagram.

In her captions, Hudson expressed her joy and pride, announcing that her baby is now a high schooler. She thanked her family and friends for joining them in celebrating the occasion and asked her fans to extend their congratulations to DOJ (David Daniel Otunga Jr.). The post garnered attention from Hudson’s friends, including Viola Davis, Tamar Braxton, and Jacob Latimore, who also acknowledged Otunga’s achievement in the comment section.

The first post featured Hudson adjusting her not-so-little one’s cap and gown with a determined expression, symbolizing her desire to set him up for success. She captioned the picture, “My baby graduated, y’all! DOJ! #classof2023 #proudmom.”

In her second post, Hudson shared various heartwarming moments from the graduation festivities. One photo showed Otunga happily posing for the camera, while others captured precious moments between him and his mother. Hudson donned a stunning rainbow dress adorned with jewelry during the ceremony and proudly displayed signs featuring her son’s face.


Hudson even tried on the blue graduation gown herself, and Otunga posed with other family members who cheered him on. A video included in the post showcased a plane flying a sky banner that read, “Congratulations DOJ! And class of 2023!”


David Daniel Otunga Jr. is the son of Jennifer Hudson and her ex-fiancé, former WWE Star David Otunga. Although Hudson has not frequently shared about her son on social media, she embraced her proud mom role on this significant day. Last August, she celebrated Otunga’s 13th birthday by sharing photos of the party, where guests wore shirts with his initials printed on them. Hudson requested her fans and Team Jhud to stop and wish her son a happy birthday, expressing her excitement at officially having a teenager and her eternal celebration of him.
