"I love being nurturing and caring because I love to see other people happy," Hudson -- who welcomed first child on Aug. 10 with fiancé, David Otunga -- tells People magazine. "Who better to devote my time to than my own child?"

Hudson and Otunga kept her pregnancy secret for as long as possible, saying of the secret, "David and I were the only people who knew for a long time. I would forget I was pregnant, it was so easy. I didn't have any morning sickness, no cravings either. I just thought, 'Oh, well, we'll wait until it'll tell on itself.' I didn't show until I was seven months so that made it easy right there."

The singer/actress says of her son's playful personality, "His favorite time to smile now is diaper changes. Or when he spits up on you - he just cracks up like he thinks it's the funniest thing. And his bottle is his pacifier. With a pacifier, it's like he knows, 'Ain't nothing come out of here. No, I don't want that. Where's the real deal?' His best friend is that bottle; that's all he wants."

She tells People that baby David will "just turn off like a switch" when she sings to him and as for his feedings, Hudson says she's "never seen a baby eat like he does."

So will the award winning actress and singer's son go down the same career path as his mother? "We'll definitely encourage education. His father is an education fanatic so we definitely want him to get an education and go to school," she tells the publication. "My mom always said, 'Whatever you want to do, I'll support you as long as you're happy.' So I will do the same."
