Nia Long shares pic of growing 'artist' son with cute hairstyle
Nia Long is a proud mother of two boys, and while her eldest seems to be interested in sports, her 6-year-old, Kez, is a little artist. The actress is often sharing pictures of her beautiful family on social media, and she has some words of advice for unmarried women in their thirties.
Better known for her roles in “Boyz n the Hood” and “NCIS: Los Angeles,” Nia Long has been in the industry for more than three decades already. Her fans watched her grow and become the beautiful mom she is today.
Long recently took to her Instagram account to share a lovely picture of her son Kez, whom she shares with long-time partner, fiancé and NBA star Ime Udoka. In the shot, the boy is wearing a white t-shirt and jeans while sitting barefoot on top of a pile of white sheets.
Kez has some paints around, and there are some splotches of color on the sheets as if he was experimenting with his artistic talent. His proud mom captioned the pic “Artiste,” and fans immediately took to the comment section to praise Kez for his creativity and Nia for his motherhood skills.
One user wrote:
“Moms are adored for this kind of freedom! Able to express himself. He's a cutie pie.”
“Craft day is the best day. Precious and gifted!”
And a third one said:
“Wow! Look how much he's grown!”
Nia also has a 17-year-old son, Massai, with ex-boyfriend Massai Dorsey. Nia was a single mom for most of her eldest son’s life until she started dating Udoka in 2010 and announced her engagement with the basketball player in 2015.
NIA'S ADVICE FOR WOMEN OVER 30
Even though the couple still hasn’t tied the knot, and there are no wedding plans on sight, Nia is not desperate. She has the ring, the family and the career, so there’s no rush on her side. And while promoting her film “The Best Man Holiday” two years before her engagement, she talked about the pressure that being 30 puts into independent women.
“I think that women who are extremely driven to success, ambitious, I think they get to a point in their lives when they’re like, ‘Uh oh. I am 30-something years old, and I don’t have a husband, and I don’t have children yet and what does that mean?’ I think what it means is stay in your course because it’s going to happen when it’s supposed to happen.”
The 47-year-old advised women to take their time and have an open heart, as she states that not everything happens at the same time for everyone and happiness can be in your face, but you need to vulnerable to accept it.
“I think the more success you have as a woman, you kinda go, 'Well, I don't really need a man 'cause look: I have everything I want,’” she added. “But the truth is you do need a partner because at some point in your life you're not going to want to walk alone."
