Nia Long and Husband Ime Udoka Welcome Son

Nia Long is a mommy again!

The “Big Momma’s House” actress and her basketball player husband Ime Udoka welcomed a baby boy, their first child together, on Monday, he rep told E! Online.

Long, who is also a mother to a 10-year-old boy from a previous relationship, named her newborn son Kez Sunday Udoka.

“This is the most exciting time in our lives,” Long and Udoka told People in a statement this past June when they announced they were expecting. “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.”

Nia Long was initially told by her doctor that it would be difficult for her to get pregnant at 40 years old. The actress told Ebony Magazine in her recent cover story:

“I honestly asked God for this. 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.”

Congrats to Nia and her family on their new addition!!!
