Jennifer HudsonActress and singer Jennifer Hudson is slamming reports that she is pregnant with her second child, despite a story that Star Magazine published this week. The publication cited a "close friend" of Hudson's as the source of the fabrication but the actress' rep Lisa Kasteler quickly set the record straight. "Contrary to what has been falsely reported, Jennifer Hudson is not pregnant," Kasteler told People. "Jennifer leaves in April for South Africa where she will portray Winnie Mandela in the feature film, 'Winnie."

"It is a commitment she is excited about and takes very seriously," Kasteler continued. "Jennifer is currently in the studio recording her second album and this is the only delivery she is looking forward to in 2010."

Hudson gave birth to her first child, David Daniel Otunga Jr. this past August. During her pregnancy the Chicago-native never confirmed nor denied that she was with child fueling speculation that she may have been going the same route this time around. The 28-year-old is engaged to former reality television star David Otunga Sr., and has not yet revealed a date for the future wedding ceremony.
