Daily News: She's enjoyed great highs and suffered terrible lows, but now rumors abound that Jennifer Hudson has some joyous news: She's pregnant.

Despite denials by her reps, two sources close to the singer/actress confirmed to Essence magazine that Hudson expecting her first child.

The Grammy and Oscar winner is engaged to Harvard law graduate David Otunga, who appeared on the reality show "I Love New York 2," but so far no date has been set for their nuptials.

The former "American Idol" contestant's rise to fame was punctuated by tragedy last October when her mother, brother and nephew were murdered in Chicago. Hudson's estranged brother-in-law William Balfour was later charged with the killings.

Hudson returned to the stage on Feb. 1, singing "The Star-Spangled Banner" at the Super Bowl. A week later, she won her first Grammy Award for best R&B album.

Hudson is on tour through May 8 with Robin Thicke.
