This wasÂ Jennifer Hudson‘s first year to celebrate Mother’s Day as a new mom to 9-month old son, David, and theÂ American Idol runner-up spent the day in style hanging out with Oprah Winfrey and Mary J. Blige! Hudson was in New York City on Sunday singing for the talk show magnate and joining her for a charitable fundraiser. Keep reading for all the details on Hudson’s first Mother’s Day…
Rather than spend a quiet Mother’s Day at home with her fiance and 9-month old son,Â American Idol runner-upÂ Jennifer Hudson spent the day surrounded by celebrities, most notably talk show superstar, Oprah Winfrey. Winfrey invited Hudson to sing Happy Birthday to commemorate the 10th anniversary ofÂ O, the Oprah Magazine on SundayÂ and Hudson happily obliged. After the event, theÂ American Idol alum joined Oprah and fellow celebrities, Mary J. Blige, Bette Midler, Elizabeth Banks, and Tracy Chapman for the “Live Your Best Life Walk.” The event–a four-hour walk around New York City–was a fundraiser that contributed to 10 different charities.
About the event,Â Jennifer Hudson said,Â â€œSpending my first Mother’s Day at the Live Your Best Life Walk is a really fun experience to encourage others to get moving and help support the benefiting charities.Â Weight Watchers has helped me learn the importance of activity and I have seen the benefits that leading an active lifestyle brings â€“ which is a big help when I’m busy running after my son!â€
Following the performance and fundraising walk,Â Jennifer Hudson planned to spend some quality time with her fiance and baby boy. She told PEOPLE magazine before the event,Â ”Following the walk I plan to spend my first Mother’s Day enjoying time with my family.”
