In a new interview with Access Hollywood, singer and actress Jennifer Hudson raves about life with son David Daniel Jr., 7 months. “I’m just loving being a mom,” she reveals. “He’s great … he’s growing [and] he’s crawling now.”

From the sound of things, he has good company on the floor, for baby boy has taken quite a liking to the family dogs.

“He’s always trying to play with them and he thinks he’s one of them,” Jennifer confesses. “He even growls like the dogs, and I’m like, ‘Are you growling?'” She adds,

Speaking from Elton John’s annual Oscar party on Sunday, Jennifer, 28, said she’s looking forward to her upcoming nuptials with David Otunga.

A wedding dress has been selected — “it’s fierce,” she promises — and Jennifer says isn’t doing anything drastic to get herself in shape for the big day.

“I just walk, run, stay consistent and just stay in focus,” she explains. “It’s all about health this year.”
