Nia Long and her husband Ime Udoke have welcomed a son into the World.
The Soul Food star and her basketball player husband welcomed their healthy baby boy, Kez Sunday Udoka, into the World this Sunday. The 41-year-old actress said that her pregnancy was unplanned but that she was extremely happy: “I was supposed to go to Ghana to do a film and that’s when I found out I was pregnant. I had a doctor’s appointment to get the yellow fever shot and they were like, ‘Miss Long, we can’t give you a shot.’” She described the moment when she found out as the “best moment and sweetest surprise ever.”
Kez is the couple’s first child together; the Love Jones actress also has a 10-year-old son, Massai, with former boyfriend Massai Z. Dorsey.
Nia shocked the world as she posed naked and pregnant on the November cover of Ebony magazine. Her boldness caused a stir, but the thrill of being pregnant was such an adrenaline rush to the star.
Speaking to US weekly, she said: “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.”
