Now that Common and Jennifer Hudson have seemingly confirmed their relationship, could marriage be in their future?

During an appearance on Today with Hoda & Jenna on Monday, January 22, when Hoda Kotb asked the rapper/actor, 51, if Hudson, 42, could “be The One,” Common replied, “I feel like I have grown and the work that I’ve done on myself has allowed me to see that I am a marrying type.”

“I’m capable and I have the capacity, and if at some point in my life I may want to do that, I would know when the right time is,” the Oscar, Grammy and Emmy winner added. “For me, everything is divine. I work from that discernment that God speaks — when He speaks into your stomach and you feel it in your heart and your spirit, so when I would feel that, I will communicate with that person and if she’s feeling that, then why not?”

His response follows his appearance on The Jennifer Hudson Show when they appeared to confirm they are dating.
