He's only 7 weeks old, but Jennifer Hudson says her son David Daniel Otunga Jr. could be following in her singing footsteps.

"He seems like he's very interested in music already," the Grammy-winning singer, 27, told Tuesday at The Wizard of Oz Netflix concert in NYC's Central Park. "The other night he was having a fit and screaming and sometimes when I play music, he will just calm down. I was exactly the same way."

When she put on "Let It Be" — a tune she recorded with Rod Stewart — Hudson said her son "literally just shut down. It was like he just gradually fell asleep."

Sometimes when he cries, she adds, "I try to harmonize!"

Though he was born Aug. 10, her son already "does a whole lot," she said. "He's turning over, he lifts his head up, he's trying to hold his own bottles! Sometimes I swear he talking to me — or trying to. I think he's a very rare newborn. He's the cutest thing in the world, I promise you."

She says she and fiance David Otunga are already gearing up for the holidays.

"His dad went and bought him some stuff for Halloween the other night, and I'm like, 'Oh wow – you already did that?'" she told Us. "I wanted to pick it out, see? We have to fight over who gets the baby!"

Christmas, she added, will be "ridiculous."

Said Hudson, "This is the first one, so I'm going to have to go all out. I'm going to dress him up like Santa Claus! It's going to be great!"
