Nia Long is getting ready to walk down the aisle! Yep, she finally got her ring and she looks happy and hot too.
E! News has exclusively confirmed with the actress' rep that she is engaged to her longtime boyfriend Ime Udoka. The 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 brother Massai, Long's son from a previous relationship, in the family fold. Kez is Udoka's first child
"Stay in your course because it's going to happen when it's supposed to happen," she added. "It doesn't happen for everyone at the same time, so you can't compare your life to someone else's." Nia Long was quoted saying.
