Celebrity Plus-Size Mamas

I don't really care about pop culture shows like American Idol, etc., but sooner or later even an out-of-touch old geezer like me hears about some of the people who emerge from these shows.

One of these is Jennifer Hudson, who I admit I mostly paid attention to because she was a woman of size. (Winning an Oscar and a Grammy didn't hurt either.)

I'm happy to report that she just became the most recent celebrity plus-sized mama.

We know very little about the pregnancy or birth, just that she gave birth to a son, David Daniel Otunga Jr., on Monday, and that the baby weighed 7 pounds, 14 ounces. (So much for the idea that all fat women have huuuuge babies.)

Congratulations to Jennifer the Dream Girl on her new little "Dream Boy." Way to go, mama! You deserve a little happiness in your life now.

Heheh--my 2 month old weighed 7 lbs 14 oz and I'm pretty petite. We need something like the BMI project pictures for moms--larger moms and smaller moms holding their new babies, just so people can see that people of all sizes have babies of all sizes.

(Sorry, I should explain--longtime lurker, though said 2 month old has kept me from checking out my favorite blogs recently. But I just saw a comment of yours of SP and was reminded to stop by your blog. I love what you're doing here.)
