Inside Jennifer Hudson's majestic $3million Chicago home

The Respect star lives with her son David Jr.

Jennifer Hudson has one impressive home! The Respect actress lives in a $3million, 12,000 square-foot property in Burr Ridge, just 17 miles from Chicago.

While she is very private about her personal life, she has on occasion given fans a glimpse inside her majestic estate, which was custom-built back in 2007 by the previous owners before Jennifer snapped it up.
