The 41-year-old actress is expecting a baby boy with boyfriend Ime Udoka, a former NBA player with the San Antonio Spurs who now plays for Nigeria's national basketball team. Long already has an 11-year-old son, Massai, with her former long-time boyfriend and fellow actor Massai Z. Dorsey, so she knows what she's getting into.
What she wasn't able to anticipate was getting pregnant at an older age. Long opens up about her pregnancy inside the November issue.
"Society tells us ‘Get married before 30…’ I think if we just take our time as women, and do what comes natural to us and for us, we would make fewer mistakes," Long tells Ebony.
And, this cover was certainly no mistake. The 'Love Jones' star looks absolutely amazing, don't you agree?
