Jennifer Hudson is ready to jet off to South Africa and not a rumored pregnancy according to a representative.

Issuing a statement Wednesday, after days of rumors surrounding the Grammy winner being pregnant with her second child, Hudson’s rep says her next film role is the only thing she will be delivering in 2010.

“Contrary to what has been falsely reported, Jennifer Hudson is not pregnant. Jennifer leaves in April for South Africa where she will portray Winnie Mandela in the feature film, ‘Winnie’,” says Hudson’s rep.  “It is a commitment she is excited about and takes very seriously. Jennifer is currently in the studio recording her second album and this is the only delivery she is looking forward to in 2010.”

Hudson gave birth to her first child, David, in August.

As previously reported, the Grammy Award-winner is slated to appear as Winnie Mandela, the controversial wife of South African leader Nelson Mandela, in a forthcoming biopic.
