Jennifer Hudson’s son Daniel Jr. does not recognize pictures of her taken while she was overweight, the singer recently revealed to Good Housekeeping magazine.

Now a size 6 since losing 80 pounds with Weight Watchers, she says:

“He’s never known me overweight. If he sees a clip of the old Jennifer from Dreamgirls, he doesn’t know who it is. Everything changed the day my son was born. Motherhood brought tremendous responsibilities – none greater than the obligation I felt to get healthy and be there for my son. David deserved to have a mama who could run after him without getting wounded or tired, to have a role model who could teach him to make healthy food choices. I needed him to grow up with a mama who always would be there for him by caring enough about herself to take control of her health and her eating.”
