Nia, 48, took to Instagram a few days back to announce that her older son Massai Zhivago Dorsey Jr., is officially a college freshman.

Still To Come: Massai Jr. is the product of a relationship between Nia and her former partner, actor Massai Dorsey Sr.

The actress posted a black-and-white image that shows her giving Massai a tender kiss as the teenager smiled at the camera.

It was in May that Nia first shared the news that Massai had chosen to attend Eastern Kentucky University. Alongside a snapshot with the budding athlete, she made the announcement and thanked her ex for putting in the time.

“Blood, sweat, and tears...it’s the only way. Let’s get it baby boy!!!” the “47 Meters Down” star wrote. “[Shout] out to Massai Sr. for never missing a game and keeping our boy on course!!”
