The "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" star Nia Long's youngest son Kez Sunday Udoka went the extra mile to protect himself as he wore a mask even while swimming in a home pool. Check out the funny picture!

Nia Long's son, Kez Sunday Udoka does not play when it comes to his safety. The 8-year-old will protect himself from the COVID-19 virus at home, outdoors, and as it turns out, in the water, too!

Long recently shared a funny snapshot of her son taking a dip in the pool with a medical mask on. The young one had a pair of swimming goggles as he flung his arms wide open while sticking his head outside the water.

In the caption, his mother clarified that her son was trying to be funny and does not actually think that masks work or are necessary while inside a water body. She wrote:

"By any means necessary...protect yourself. ***Don't try this at home for those of you with no sense of humor. ***"



Kez was born to Long and her longtime beau, basketball star Ime Udoka in November 2011. He is the first child of Udoka and the secondborn of Long. Her oldest son is Massai Zhivago Dorsey II. 

The actress has made it known that marriage is not a priority to her.

Massai was born when the "Empire" actress was in a relationship with actor Massai Z. Dorsey. She raised her firstborn in a single-parent household after parting ways with Dorsey.



Back in 2009, Long, who was raised by a single mother, revealed that her mother gave her a happy childhood even though they were not financially well-off. Her mother would take her on vacations and to museums, exposing her to opportunities and the ways of the world. 

Since she had such a great role model to look up to, Long raised her son with love and exposed him to things that nurtured his personality and growth. According to her, the most important thing with him was showing him where he came from. 


Massai grew up without morning television, an iron-clad rule set by Long to encourage conversations about things that matter. As for whether his father did his share to raise a good son, Long shared that he was totally involved. 


Having gone through a complicated marriage before, Long understands the complexities of love. She believes that the religious aspect of marriage is beautiful, but she feels like she does not need to be in wedlock to feel like a relationship is working. 


Long and her fiancé Udoka have been engaged for five years now. They made their romance public in 2010 and both of them believe that their relationship is great without the label of "husband and wife."

The actress has made it known that marriage is not a priority to her. In 2012, she dismissed the rumors that she and Udoka secretly tied the knot and said that they were in a happy place.
