Jennifer Hudson claims her seven-week-old baby David is talking already
Jennifer Hudson thinks her seven-week-old son talks to her.
The 28-year-old singer, who has son David with fiance David Otunga, is adamant her offspring is a genius and is already trying to converse with her.
She said: "He's a very rare newborn. He tries a lot - he's turning over, he's lifting up his own head, he tries to hold his own bottle, sometimes I swear he's talking to me, or at least trying to.
"The other day he said, 'Hi!' - I swear, I'm not crazy. David was there too, and he was like, 'He just said, Hi!' He's very aware."
Jennifer is inspired to be a good parent by her own mother - who, along with the singer's brother Jason, was killed by William Balfour, the estranged husband of Jennifer's sister Julia last year.
She is determined to give David the best start in life, and is already investing in special outfits for him to wear on his first Halloween (31.10.09).
Jennifer explained to People magazine: "It's going to be ridiculous. I can't wait. His dad went and bought him some Halloween stuff the other night. I wish he was older so he could remember it, but this is the first one, so I have to go all out. It's going to be great."
The 'Spotlight' singer thinks David might follow in her footsteps by becoming a musician, as he already responds to records.
She said: "The other night he was having a fit screaming, and someone turns on the music and he just stops and calms down. Sometimes when he cries, I try to harmonise!"
