Jennifer Hudson‘s romance with Common is “wonderful.”

The Dreamgirls star has been romantically linked with the “Light” musician for the last two years. She teased that “everything” about their relationship is going well.

“Everything is wonderful. That’s all you need to know,” she told People.

The pair appeared to confirm rumors they were dating in January when the singer and John Wick actor appeared on Hudson’s self-titled talk show, where he presented her with a bunch of flowers and discussed his flourishing relationship — albeit without mentioning his partner by name.

“I’m in a relationship … with one of the most beautiful people I ever met in life. She’s smart; she loves God; she has something real down-to-earth about her; she’s talented,” he gushed.

After joking he wanted a partner with EGOT status — something Hudson has achieved — he then asked the host about her relationship, and she said she was “very happy.”

“This relationship is a happy place for me. Seeing her happy actually makes me really happy. So, I’m very grateful. I thank God each and every day, and I’m just letting God guide this relationship,” Common replied.

Shortly afterward, he admitted he and Hudson — who has son David Jr. with former partner David Otunga — had had “a little fun” with the way they went public with their relationship on her show.

“We had a little fun. I felt, like, why not just be loving and honest with who I am and who we are. And it felt good; it was fun; we had a good time,” he told “Today.”

Before dating Hudson, Common was in a relationship with Tiffany Haddish. The Girls Trip actor recently insisted she is very happy for the couple.

“I love Jennifer. I hope they’re having fun. Girl, please,” she said last month on the “Making Space with Hoda Kotb” podcast.
