Things are starting to look up for Jennifer Hudson, all things considered. The man responsible for the tragic deaths of her close family members is now behind bars, she’s got a new gig coming up with Smash, and she’s planning her wedding to pro wrestler beau David Otunga. Things weren’t always looking so rosy for the longtime loves. The two got engaged four years ago, but when tragedy struck the Hudson family, things understandably got a little murky in the wedding department.

According to Radar Online, a source explained that she originally suspended the engagement and returned her ring to David because she wasn’t sure the situation was just right, what with all that has happened since their 2008 engagement.

With the trial behind her, though, she’s reportedly had a change of heart. “After things settled down, she realized that he was her rock and that she wanted to spend her life with him and keep building their family together. She is more sure than ever now that she is ready to get married,” the source reports.

We’re sure Jennifer’s going to make a b-e-a-utiful bride and hope she has all the happiness in the world. She sure deserves it.
