Like Jennifer Hudson's Career, Her Reported Love Life With Common Also Continues To Flourish
Outside of Hudson's show doing exceptionally well, her love life looks happy as ever with rapper Common. Photographers spotted the celebrity couple strolling together in the park Thursday afternoon. The walking trail is in a Chicago suburb where Jennifer currently lives.
The couple looked cute, comfortable and cozy with each other's arms locked tight. Cameras previously caught the lovebirds out and about together on multiple occasions. Due to the writers' strike currently in full effect, Jennifer and Common have been able to spend more quality time together in L.A., where Hudson films her syndicated talk show.
As previously reported, the couple began dating back in February. Although they tried to keep the relationship low-key, paparazzi spotted them on a date night at the very popular and romantic Nobu in Malibu. Sources say that the friendship developed into a romance after working together as on-screen lovers in the upcoming thriller, Breathe.
"They've known each other for years," an insider said about the couple. "Things took a romantic turn while they were filming in Philadelphia over the summer. When the day's shoot wrapped, they'd always find their way to each other's side."
We love to see the pair still going strong! Are you here for the new couple? Let us know below!
