Nia Long is introducing the world to the man she’s expecting a child with.
The actress cuddled up with 33-year-old NBA player Ime Udoka for a picture and announced that he’s the father of her second child. The couple confirmed the good news to People magazine.
"This is the most exciting time in our lives," Nia and Ima said in a statement. "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 already has a 10-year-old son named Massai, but this will be Ime’s first child.
Questions about the baby’s paternity arose last week after Nia confirmed reports that the petruding belly in photos of her bikini-clad physique was indeed a new baby on the way.
"The mystery and ridiculous speculations are over," the Love Jones and Best Man star tweeted Friday.
