Nia Long and Ime Udoka Welcome A Baby Boy
Rucuss staffNovember 11, 2011
Nia Long welcomed her second child on Monday.
Long, 41, gave birth to her second son Kez Sunday Udoka. She has 10-year old son Massai from a previous relationship. This is the first child for her boyfriend NBA player Ime Udoka.
Long and Udoka announced the pregnancy in June. It came as a surprise for Long because her doctor told her that it would be hard for her to conceive again at age 40.
“I honestly asked God for this,” Long told Ebony Magazine. “I remember I was driving home from the doctor, and I called [my boyfriend] Ime, and I was like, ‘Babe, I’m really kind of sad right now. The doctor actually said if I wanted to have more children, it would be hard.’ The next time [Ime] came to visit, he said, ‘I don’t believe that.’ I said, ‘You don’t?’ He said, ‘No.’ And I said, ‘Good, me neither.’ Then I got pregnant.”
“The medical [profession] tries to tell every woman, ‘Have your babies before 40 because you shouldn’t have children after 40.’ Society tells us, ‘Get married before 30, because no man wants a woman after 30.’ You are not half the woman you’re gonna be until you turn 30. You’re not even half of that woman yet. So I think if we’d just take our time as women, and do what comes natural to us and for us, we would make fewer mistakes.”
Long and Udoka are thrilled about their new addition to the family.
“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.”
