After months of speculation about whether or not she was pregnant, Jennifer Hudson indeed gave birth on Monday to a healthy baby boy named David Daniel Otunga, Jr., her rep confirmed to People.com. As a gift for the new mom (and her fiance, David Otunga), I thought I’d take a crack at writing a lullaby to the tune of “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going,” the Dreamgirls showstopper that helped Hudson win a Best Supporting Actress Oscar back in 2007. Hey, you never know when she’ll need new material to help quell a crying jag from her brand new bundle of joy!
And I am telling you
You are napping
You’re the best tot I’ll ever know
So I’ll rock you to sleep for sure
No, no, there’s no way
No, no, no, no way you’re gonna keep fussing
No there’s no need for fussing
‘Cause your diaper is clean
Now you, oh you, you’re gonna get sleep
Ooh, you’re gonna get sleep!
