Jennifer Hudson wasn't so lucky in love in her Oscar-winning performance in "Dreamgirls," but luckily her life doesn't imitate art.
The former " American Idol" finalist and her boyfriend David Otunga were enaged on Friday, Sept. 12 in Los Angeles, reports People.
The proposal, complete with a Neil Lane diamond ring, coincided with Hudson's 27th birthday.
Hudson broke off a longterm relationship with James Payton in December 2007. She and Otunga, both from Chicago, have been dating less than a year.
