Rapper and actor Common recently went public with his romance with Jennifer Hudson, confirming their relationship on The Jennifer Hudson Show. During a candid interview on Today with Hoda & Jenna, Common expressed that he sees himself as the “marrying type” and is open to the possibility of marriage in the future.
Common, 51, discussed his personal growth and the impact it had on his views about relationships. He emphasized the importance of being present in a relationship, acknowledging past baggage, and setting boundaries for self-love. Despite being a private person, he shared the joyous experience of appearing on Hudson’s talk show, where they playfully teased each other about their relationship.
The couple first sparked rumors in 2022 while filming the action-thriller Breathe together, and their recent public appearances at NBA games have fueled speculation about their romance. However, Common and Hudson had initially been coy about confirming their relationship, keeping details private.
During the Jennifer Hudson Show, Common surprised Hudson with a bouquet of flowers and playfully listed high standards for his ideal partner, all of which coincidentally applied to Hudson. The EGOT winner, in turn, shared her happiness in the relationship, confirming she was dating but stopping short of revealing the person involved.
As the couple continues to keep details of their relationship private, Common expressed gratitude for the joy Hudson brings to his life, emphasizing their happiness together. The journey from on-set rumors to public acknowledgment has added another chapter to Common and Jennifer Hudson’s evolving love story.
