You may have heard by now, but if not Nia Long is expecting baby number two.
Of course, as soon as word got out that the veteran actress was with child folks were quick to quip back in response, “Who the daddy?” Well, it’s a NBA basketball player.
Nia Long confirmed such in a statement to People magazine. She says the father is professional basketball player Ime Udoka. Udoka was born in Portland and has played for the Los Angeles Lakers (four games), the New York Knicks (eight games), Portland Trailblazers (75 games), and the San Antonio Spurs (20 games).
The couple wrote to People:
“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.”
The couple expects their new child in the fall. It will be the second for Long and first for Udoka.
