GET EXCITED Jennifer Hudson! It's Your 30th Birthday!
Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Hudson has had a whirlwind of a year. Starting a new family, new movies, promoting a new album and a total body transformation, we have watched Jen come into her own as a woman and a mother. Celebrate her 30 years inside the gallery.
And she even announced plans to detail how you can start your life over with a $1 million book deal. Not too bad for a girl many folks at "American Idol" didn't view as a superstar.
Celebrate the 30th birthday of the new JHud in the photo gallery.
