Days after her 30th birthday, Jennifer Hudson gets fired up in a flaming red dress Tuesday at Self magazine’s fourth annual Women Doing Good Awards in New York City.

The actress and singer’s date for the evening? Two-year-old son David Daniel!

Hudson, who has lost 80 lbs., says she decided to kick-start her weightless when she realized no one could tell she was expecting a baby.

“I thought, hold on – why doesn’t anybody know I’m pregnant?” she admits.

“And I wanted to set a good example for my son.”
