Dreamgirls star Anika Noni Rose says Jennifer Hudson will be the perfect mother.

"She will be a great, amazing and loving mom," Rose told PEOPLE at a party for Grey's Anatomy star Chandra Wilson's Broadway performance in Chicago on Monday in New York. "Having seen her with babies myself, that baby of hers is going to have a good time and be much loved."

The Tony winner and star of HBO's The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency says Hudson will ease into motherly duties. "She loves babies and now that she going to be a mother herself, this experience is going to be fun and rewarding for her. She will have no problems taking on the responsibilities."

Hudson, who has not yet announced publicly that she is expecting her first child with fiancé David Otunga, reportedly celebrated with a baby shower in Chicago in May.

"I just hope that with a baby that each day brings her joy and the ability to come back to her wonderful self," Rose said of her friend whose mother, brother and nephew were murdered last year. "It's been a harrowing year for her and I hope that she finds comfort, joy and support and that she can move forward with her new baby."
