It was family day for Jennifer Hudson at the March of Dimes Celebration of Babies in LA on Friday afternoon. The singer was joined by fiancé David Otunga and their adorable 7-year-old son, David Jr., at the event, which also brought out pals Kelly Rowland and Nick Cannon. Jennifer stunned in a gorgeous plum dress and was honored inside with the Grace Kelly Award for her commitment to helping families and giving all babies the healthiest start in life.
Jennifer got emotional while accepting her award, telling the audience, "I'm not a speaker, but I am a mother. It is so hard — no matter what you are going through in life — to be able to see from someone else's perspective . . . I'm so grateful for this opportunity because it taught me about premature births and what families go through. Going to the NICU (neonatal intensive care units) and seeing their situations . . . it just took my heart under and through." Jennifer's latest appearance comes a week after she and David Jr. attended the LA premiere of Sing together.
