Days after her 30th birthday, Jennifer Hudson gets fired up in a flaming red dress Tuesday at Self magazine’s fourth annual Women Doing Good Awards in New York City.

The actress and singer’s date for the evening? Two-year-old son David Daniel!

Hudson, who has lost 80 lbs., says she decided to kick-start her weightless when she realized no one could tell she was expecting a baby.

“I thought, hold on – why doesn’t anybody know I’m pregnant?” she admits.

“And I wanted to set a good example for my son.”

Jennifer Hudson looks beautiful and its wonderful that she has lost so much weight but how much longer are we going to have to hear about it. It has been like 7 months now, no longer news in my book.

Before anyone says it, no I am not overweight and fat and ugly. Just someone voicing an opinion.

Completely agree with you ELO! I think she looks wonderful, and her son is too adorable. It’s great that she’s gotten this feat under her belt, but…perhaps it’s time to move on and go in search of new accomplishments and ways to set a good example for her son.

Please on

Umm ELO were hearing about it because it was for SELF mag. Its focus was on weightloss and fitness! Don’t be a hater all your life.

@Please- Yes, I am most obviously a hater after specifically stating how beautiful Jennifer looks and how wonderful it is that she has made such an accomplishment.

She looks SO beautiful in that photo! WOW!!!

It’s free publicity plugged in by weight watchers. We’ll hear it ad nauseum. She does look great, though, no doubt.

Jennifer Hudson is one amazing lady. I love her warm spirit and very kind heart. She is such a class act. Her date for the event is such a little cutie. He really brings out the best in her!!!

Glad that she lost the weight, BUT in the commercial for weight watchers, she does not look that hot; she had big hip and big thighs. Daniel is a cutie, but really needs to have his hair tamed.

@norma You must not have a twitter or follow her on twitter. Jennifer Hudson is still a Southside chick. I love her, though. But yeah, she gets gangsta on Twitter in a heartbeat.

Kirsha I personally would take big hips and thighs over a skinny frame with no curves any day. Clothes look better when they are filled out and not looking like it’s still hanging on a hanger!!

@Please, don’t be ignorant all your life.

While, I think it’s great she lost weight, I too, am sick of hearing about it. And I also, am not fat, ugly or a hater. If I could post a picture of me and my family I would to prove it, since that’s usually asked.

She looks great from the neck down. And cut that kids hair!

Lady on

David is adorable & Jen looks great…although this was for Self Mag, I am sick of hearing about it in every post, all the time about her. She looks amazing, we know!

It’s so interesting to me that all of the Black children have someone screaming about how awful their hair is, or how it needs to be “tamed”. Just because a child’s hair doesn’t lay lifelessly against their cheeks or flat on their skull doesn’t mean the child isn’t beautiful.
