The Oscar winner and her fiancé David Otunga are already parents to 4-year-old son David Jr, and the actress has now told Life & Style that she is almost ready for another child.
"It's always been my dream to have a boy first and then a little girl so he'd be the big brother… I want one so bad," Hudson declared.
Hudson added that her desire for a daughter has only been spurred by David Jr.
"He says, 'Mommy, I want a baby sister,' every day," she revealed. "[I say], Give me another year or two.
"I used to say when David Jr is 4, but he's almost 4 now. So maybe [when he's] 5 or 6, because this is coming too soon!"
Hudson and Otunga got engaged in 2008 after dating for several months.
The actress's next professional project is a guest-starring role in Smash as a Tony Award-winning Broadway star.
