Nia Long Says Pregnancy News Was A Complete Shock


Actress Nia Long shares that news of baby #2 took her by complete surprise.

Nia (Are We There Yet?, Big Mumma's House) just recently announced that she and her husband, pro basketball player Ime Udoka, are expecting their first child together (she alreadsy has one son, Massai Jr, 10, with her ex-boyfriend Massai Z. Dorsey).  Nia shared at the BET awards on Sunday night how she found out the happy news:

"I was supposed to go to Ghana to do a film and that's when I found out I was pregnant. I had a doctor's appointment to get the yellow fever shot and they were like, 'Miss Long, we can't give you a shot.'  I almost fainted. It was the best moment and the sweetest surprise ever."

At approximately five months along, she says that she's glad to be done with the first trimester:

"I was so horribly sick for four and a half months. Now I have energy, besides a little heartburn here and there, and I'm doing excellent. The baby is huge!"

Congrats to the happy parents (and big brother)!
