The Jennifer Hudson Show host took to Instagram over the weekend to share a rare photo of her 13-year-old posing with his famous mom at the recent NBA All Star game, and he's now taller than her.

After sharing the picture, many of Jennifer's fans commented on just how much the pair looked alike, while others remarked on how tall he has got.

"He's had a growth spurt!" one wrote, while another commented: "You and your son are twins!" A third added: "The resemblance is striking."

The EGOT winner shares her son with ex David Otunga, who she separated from in 2017. The mother-son duo are primarily based in Chicago, where they live in a $3million, 12,000 square-foot property in Burr Ridge, just 17 miles from the city.
