It’s been some time since we’ve seen Nia Long in any feature film but the beautiful actress sits down with Jet magazine to dish on her latest projects. She discusses acting as an unstable career path, her relationship with former NBA player Ime Udoka and being a part-time single mother.
JET: On reprising the role of Jordan in The Best Man Holiday (out November 15) sequel 15 years later
We made magic together— so many people say that to me. And because I love the cast. The film’s director, Malcolm Lee, has been talking about it for some time and finally announced his plan during a recent cast reunion dinner.
JET: On working on iconic films, like Boyz n the Hood and Love Jones, although acting wasn’t her first career choice
I wanted to be a pediatrician. One of the most life-changing challenges I experienced growing up was realizing that there simply wasn’t enough money for me to go to college. So I decided to focus on working. I promised that I’d give myself one year from the day I graduated from high school to make moves in the business. I was acting since I was 15, and I really wanted to help my mom, who was struggling.
Tyler Perry is at it again. He has began shooting for his new film, “Single Mom’s Club” which is slated to be released May 9th of next year. Perry’s new film is about a group of single mothers who decide to come together and build a support group after an incident at their children’s school. Along with Perry, Nia Long, Wendi Mclendon-Covey, Zulay Henao, Terry Crews, Eddie Cibrian, and Cocoa Brown will be starring in the film. The film has already caused a bit of commotion causing heavy traffic in the Decatur area of Atlanta. Now, as a single mother I am praying that Perry does us justice. I am not really a Tyler Perry fan because I just can’t seem to get into his movies. But I still have faith that this will be a good one. With the correct writers and great material, it could be a hit and finally one without Madea!
Here are a few pictures of the stars of the new film:
Nia Long, 41, has given birth to a baby boy! That’s so according to a rep for the actress.
Long’s rep, Priscilla Moralez, said she gave birth on Monday to son she, and long time love Ime Udoka named, Kez Sunday Udoka.
Moralez added, “both mother and child are healthy and happy to be home.”
This is the couple’s first child together. Long has a 10-year-old son, Massai, from a previous relationship.
Just last month, Nia posed nude on the cover of Ebony magazine, showing us all just how to be fabulous and pregnant at 40.
Nia Long, is the latest celeb mom to be to pose nude for a magazine cover. Even at 40, the expectant mom looks drop dead gorgeous! Who knew 40 and pregnant could look so good!
In the November issue of Ebony magazine the actress reveals her pregnancy diary and the shock she felt when she found out she would become a mom again, as well as how she and her partner, Ime Udoka, are handling the changes and preparing for baby.
This is one cover story you don’t wanna miss. The issue hits news stands October 18th.
The lovely Nia Long and basketball beau, Ime Udoka, are expecting a baby boy.
It came as a shock to many fans that the 40 yr. old beauty was expecting a second child after a sighting in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico earlier this year.
The Black Celeb Kids report, “I am a little excited, for a long time I thought Massai would be one child. It’s like a surreal moment for me I can’t believe it’s happening, I am happy, I am excited,” she tells Metro.co.tt
So Nia Long, 40, has finally decided to reveal the father of her child. After BET.com broke the news of her pregnancy days ago, she is now stepping forward to acknowledge her child’s father.
In an exclusive statement via People.com Nia and NBA player boyfriend Ime Udoka, 33, reveals,
“This is the most exciting time in our lives.”
“Words can’t explain how thrilled we are by the new addition to our family. We feel truly blessed and appreciate all the well wishes and prayers.”
Although this is not Nia’s first child, she has a 10 yr. old son, Massai, from a previous relationship, it will be the first for Ime.
The couple, who’ve been dating for two years will welcome a son or daughter this fall. Congratulations!
Nia Long Is Pregnant
Nia Long, aka Bird, is expecting! What’s more surprising, we all wanna know who’s the daddy?!
According to BET.com, the actress was spotted on a beach in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico revealing a very visible baby bump. Long, who have yet to make an official announcement, appeared to be glowing enjoying a day at the beach.
Might I add, “her girls” were looking plump as well! She is still gorgeous at 40 yrs old!
Long also has an 11 year old son from a previous relationship.
Nia Long visited The Today Show yesterday to speak with Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford to speak about the Chris Rock documentary ‘Good Hair’, in which she makes an appearance.
This is one documentary I will definitely check out. Great comic relief on such a serious topic. Check it out. It arrives in theaters today.
Check out Nia Long’s sexy PETA campaign. I absolutely love this ad. The beautiful actress teamed up with the animal rights organization to continue the “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” campaign in protecting the rights of animals while encouraging woman to feel comfortable in their own skin so that animals can keep theirs.
“In being a responsible adult and really understanding what happens for one fur coat and how many animals are killed and slaughtered for one fur coat, it just isn’t worth it to me.
When I became a mother, I started to really understand the importance of all living creatures in a way that I didn’t ever think about before. And I’ve realized how important it is that we really take responsibility for … treating animals with love and care just like we would any human being. There’s no difference, in my opinion, [between fur and] slavery or the Holocaust. It’s just that we’re not dealing with human beings, we’re dealing with animals, but it’s still a living thing.”
I think this is wonderful. I must admit PETA is known for their extreme measures to get their point across but this is by far one of their more effective and positive campaigns.
