She’ll make a gorgeous bride — someday! The Voice star Jennifer Hudson has been engaged to her fiancé, David Otunga, for between eight and nine years and they share an eight-year-old son, David Daniel — but the Dreamgirls alum has revealed in the past that she is in no rush to walk down the aisle.
“I feel like everything is about timing, and he ain’t going nowhere. He’s still there. Everyone has married us off anyway and we’re still a family but there’s no difference,” Jennifer previously revealed on Loose Women. “I’m a believer in you do well and better in what you want to do rather than what you have to do. If you have to be somewhere, you don’t want to do it no more.”
So, who exactly is David Otunga? Keep reading for fun facts about the man who stole Jennifer’s heart!
He was a professional wrestler.
David is a former WWE superstar and joined the Monday Night Raw commenting team in April as part of a Superstar Shake-Up. Prior to that, he was announcing SmackDown LIVE — though it’s been rumored that he could lose his role to Booker T, who has been filling in for David while he films a flick with the working title Katrina.
He knows his way around the TV world.
David appeared in VH1 reality series I Love New York 2 and had guest roles on Criminal Minds and General Hospital. We can look forward to seeing him on the big screen in 2018 as Will in Tyler Perry’s a Madea Family Funeral.
He has some legal background.
Seriously — is there anything David can’t do?! Jennifer’s hubby graduated from Harvard Law School in and landed a job with Sidley Austin, one of America’s largest firms.
“I’m the only Harvard-educated lawyer in the history of the WWE,” he quipped back in 2014.
