Nia Long is getting ready to walk down the aisle! E! News has exclusively confirmed with the actress’ rep that she is engaged to her longtime boyfriend Ime Udoka. The 44-year-old Boyz n the Hood star sparked speculation of an engagement when she was spotted wearing a sparkly diamond on that finger recently, but neither of the two lovebirds had made any mention of the big news. Until now, that is.
Long and the former NBA player and San Antonio Spurs assistant coach have been romantically linked for over five years now, and also have a son together, 3-year-old Kez. He joins brotherMassai, Long’s son from a previous relationship, in the family fold. Kez is Udoka’s first child.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
