The Chicago native appeared on The Jennifer Hudson Show on Monday (Jan. 22) and the two teased one another about their dating life. After Common surprised Hudson with a bouquet of flowers, she quizzed him on whether he was seeing anyone at the moment.
“Yes. I am in a relationship with one of the most beautiful people that I ever met in life,” he replied with a laugh. “She’s smart, she loves God, she has something real down to earth about her.
“She’s talented but I set my standard kind of high because she had to have an EGOT, she had to win an Oscar on her first movie, she had to get her own talk show,” he continued.
The Be rapper then flipped the script and began asking Hudson about her own relationship status. “How’s your love life?” he queried.
Hudson confirmed she was dating, but didn’t go as far as to say it was the person in front of her. “I’m dating as well and I am very happy,” she added. “Are you happy in your relationship?”
Common called the relationship “a happy place” for him at this point in life.
He continued: “For me, it’s one of them things where I found seeing her happy actually makes me really happy. I’m just thankful and I thank God every day. We keep it private, but I wanna acknowledge how wonderful she is, how great she is.”
Reports emerged of Common and the EGOT winner dating go as far back as July 2022. Rumors heated up in January 2023 when they were on set as co-stars filming Breathe, in which they played husband and wife.
In the time since, they’ve showered each other with praise, withg Hudson called Common a “beautiful man” in an August interview with TMZ.
More recently, the couple was even spotted courtside in Los Angeles earlier this month at Crypto.com Arena when the Lakers defeated the Dallas Mavericks.
