Wendy Williams' husband Kevin Hunter has reportedly welcomed a child with his alleged mistress, Sharina Hudson.
E! News reported that Hudson was discharged from a hospital in Philadelphia on Sunday, March 24. While E! News can confirm that Hudson left the hospital, we cannot confirm that he is the father. Although neither Hudson nor Hunter has commented on the birth or alleged infidelity, there have been rumors for a while that Williams' husband was having an affair.

Well, for some time now, and even today and beyond, I have been living in a sober house,” a weeping Williams, 54, told her studio audience.
"When you see me come to work glammed up, right after the show, I do Pilates ... You know I’ve had a struggle with cocaine in the past," she said. "I never went to a place to get treatment. I don't know how. God was just sitting on my shoulder and I just stopped … there are people in your family, it might be you … I want you to know more of the story.”
“After I go to the Pilates I go to several meetings all around town in the tri-state area, and I see my brothers and sisters caught up in their addiction and looking for help,” she said. “They don’t know I’m Wendy. They don’t care I’m Wendy. there's no autographs, there's no nothing. It’s the brothers and sisters caught up in the struggle. It’s been really interesting, this ride.”
