Actress Nia Long, best known for “Empire,” took to Instagram to share a photo of her two children sharing a beautiful brotherly moment.
In the post, her youngest son, Kez, appeared wearing a white shirt while looking up at his older brother, Massai. One of the most striking aspects of the image was the pride that Kez’ face showed.
For the caption, Nia wrote: “I love the way he looks up to his amazing big brother,” followed by a red heart emoji. As soon as the actress uploaded that image, her followers took to the comment section to share their thoughts.
One of them pointed out that it was “sibling love” and that nothing could be compared to it. Another user admitted that Kez was very similar to Nia. A third one praised the actress for raising such adorable young men.
Nia and former NBA player Ime Sunday Udoka have been in a relationship since 2010. After only one year together, the couple welcomed to the world their first child together, Kez. In 2015, Ime and Nia got engaged, but they have not discussed their wedding plans publicly yet.
The actress’ first son, Massai, was born from the relationship she and actor Massai Dorsey Sr. had in the past. The teen was born on November 26, 2000.
One of the most interesting aspects of Massai is that he has already started a career in the entertainment industry as he appeared next to his mother in the film “The Single Moms Club,” produced and directed by Tyler Perry.
After Massai’s audition took place, Nia was very nervous as she didn’t want her son to feel disappointed, so she explained to him that what really mattered was that he gave his best. The actress told him that life had wins and losses as a way to prepare him if he couldn’t get the part.
“Just as I was saying all this, the phone rang. It was my agent with the good news. We did the happy dance and started packing our bags,” added Nia. Massai took the role of Rick Miller, the son of Nia’s character, May Miller.
The actress and her sons have a very good relationship, and she often uploads photos and videos of them on social media. For Thanksgiving, the family worked together to distribute food to those in need.
Nia and her children worked with the Los Angeles Mission feeding scheme and some other celebrities to feed thousands of homeless people on Skid Row. In the image the actress uploaded, she thanked the foundation for the invitation, admitting to being thankful for making a difference.
