More than a month after giving birth to son David Daniel Otunga Jr., her first child with fiance David Otunga, Jennifer Hudson shares the first picture of the little boy with People magazine. It captures the infant falling asleep on top of his mother who is lying on what looks like to be a bed.

In companion to the shot, Jennifer also opens up about her new role as a mother, recalling first how hard it was keeping her pregnancy under the radar. "David and I were the only people who knew for a long time. I would forget I was pregnant, it was so easy. I didn't have any morning sickness, no cravings either. I just thought, 'Oh, well, we'll wait until it'll tell on itself.' I didn't show until I was seven months so that made it easy right there," she says.

The "American Idol" alum then shares about having her son delivered via C-section, revealing "Everybody told me how much it was going to hurt afterwards but I think I have a different tolerance for pain than others. By that night after I had the baby, I'm like, 'Look, I can't sit in this bed anymore. I've got to get up!' I've been up and about since he was born. To me, the pain is no different than when you work out a muscle you've never worked out before and it's sore."

And though her son is still two months old, Jennifer already knows the best way to raise him up. "We'll definitely encourage education. His father is an education fanatic so we definitely want him to get an education and go to school. My mom always said, 'Whatever you want to do, I'll support you as long as you're happy.' So I will do the same," she tells People.

Jennifer Hudson and her actor fiance David Otunga have been engaged since September last year. In August, a publicist for the songstress announced that the pair has welcomed their first child, David Daniel Otunga Jr., on August 10. More photos of the family and the rest of Jennifer's interview with People are featured on the magazine's next week issue, which will be on newsstands October 15.

Speak for yourself Norma she is not my American sweetheart, yes i'm watching so is the world, cause David is hot... but David is starting to lose his sex appeal. You I would think should be telling us when she getting married and for her to already be married and telling no one is another strike against her that is the most noblelish thing to do when you get pregnant out of to set an example for the young women of the world that looks up to her. Yes her baby is very cute I just wonder how those lips he has that looks so much like her gone turn out to look like on her little boy I can imagine very cute..I hope, don't get mad cause I said it. God Blessed Jennifer
