After months of an increasing bump and radio silence, a Chicago newspaper claims to have spoken with a guest at Jennifer Hudson's baby shower this weekend--confirming the star is pregnant with her first child.
"It was a baby shower, a quiet gathering of friends and mostly family," Hudson pal Felicia Fields allegedly told the Chicago Tribune.
"They're really trying to keep it kind of quiet."
The shower took place in Downtown Chicago, where guests brought gifts mostly in yellow as Hudson and fiancé David Otunga "don't know the gender."

The pair have been engaged since September 2008. While a wedding date hasn't been revealed, Hudson has said she wants her dogs (Grammy, Oscar and Dreamgirl) in the ceremony.
The happy news comes on the heals of a horrible year for Hudson, following the murders of her mother, brother and nephew.
