When Jennifer Hudson is not commandeering her Emmy-nominated talk show, she's spending time with her teen son David, and he's turning into quite the strapping young version of his famous mom.

The singer, 41, shared a new selfie of herself with her 13-year-old son at an NBA game, one of their favorite outings, and their shared facial features made for quite a striking photo.

Fans noticed it too, as many took to the comments section with exclamations of how much they looked alike, with one commenting: "He stole your whole face."

Another said: "Danggg y'all really do look alike," with a third adding: "He's so handsome, and he's your twin," and one even writing: "That's your baby boy??? Wow! Time flies! Twinning!"

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.

The home features six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, along with two laundry rooms, a game room, an in-house screening room, and a heated garage big enough for six different cars. 

It's been a transformative time for the singer-turned actress-turned talk show host, who recently received her first batch of Daytime Emmy nominations (six, to be exact) for her eponymous show.

The grateful daytime host took to social media soon after the news to celebrate the members of her team who got the show to that point.

Alongside a photograph featuring all members of the crew, she wrote: "When I say I couldn't be prouder of the whole staff and crew here at The Happy Place!!! To this amazing team in this photo…I am beyond blessed to work alongside you every day."

However, the announcement was soon followed by the news that the Daytime Emmy Awards will not be proceeding next month on June 16 as planned due to the ongoing Writers' Guild of America strikes.

In a statement released by the National Academy of TV Arts & Sciences, it was revealed that the strikes had impacted the ceremony and they'd been indefinitely postponed.
