Jennifer Hudson usually keeps her relationship with David Otunga, a professional wrestler, on the very down low, but she recently got personal with Essence magazine, sharing details about a potential upcoming wedding. "It's been a thought obviously," she said. "It's about timing. I am in no rush at all."

Hudson and Otunga got engaged back in 2008 and share a son, David Otunga, Jr., 6, but they haven't seemed to move forward with any wedding plans, until perhaps now. "After being at Ciara's wedding, I'm like, okay," she revealed. "I don't know, it inspired something. I just loved her dress. It was so beautiful. So that made me say, okay, all [of] my friends and peers are married now. You know what I mean?" If there's one time to give in to peer pressure, we think it would be now.

Ciara and Russell Wilson's wedding was truly incredible, so we can see why J Hud would feel more inclined to walk down the aisle herself. For the Wilsons's fairy-tale wedding, Hudson wore a peach mermaid gown by Christian Siriano and had not one, but two dates: David Sr. and David Jr. "We will [get married]," she told the magazine. "It will happen." The only question now, is when?

A total girly girl, Jane loves everything about the wedding-planning process, but her favorite part has to be where it all starts: the engagement ring. She's a sucker for all things sparkly, especially in diamond form and sitting on your ring finger. But she can't count out those gorgeous bridal bouquets. They may not be diamonds, but they still hold a serious wow factor.
