Jennifer Hudson’s fiancé, David Otunga, opens up to Wendy Williams about how they’re coping with the murder of her family and they discuss when the couple, who are parents to two-year-old David Daniel Otunga Jr., will finally walk down the aisle.
“You know I’m just here to support her in anyway I can. Emotionally, just through everything,’ Otunga said on The Wendy Williams Show. “It will be nice to put this behind us for good.”
The trial of William Balfour, the estranged husband of Jennifer’s sister Julia Hudson who is convicted of the murders, begins in April. Otunga tells Williams that the couple plan to wait until it concludes before planning their wedding.
“There is a trial we need to get through first, some things we need to sort out, but it’s coming,” said Otunga. He and Hudson have been engaged since 2008.
