A BIRTHDAY SURPRISE
In the first picture, Long was evidently in a celebratory mood, feeling her best self on her birthday. As the star of the day, the actress wore a crown on her head with party sunglasses shaped into the number 50.
Long looked like she did not expect any grand celebration but Jordan Barnes, whom she called her sister, perfectly pulled off a surprise birthday party in the garden. She wrote in the caption:
"When your little sister surprises you for your birthday. Been down with this ball of fire for 15 years. @jordiebnyc love you ?"
RINGING HIS MOM'S GOLDEN YEAR
In her second snap, Long also posted a short video of her son, Kez Sunday Udoka, blowing a trumpet in honor of her birthday. He shortly extended both of his hands and went back to his usual stance.
The 8-year-old boy, whom Long and longtime partner Ime Udoka welcomed in November 2011, was dressed in a tie-dye shirt which he paired with red shorts. He also sported a printed black bandana on his forehead.
Aside from Kez, the "Big Momma’s House" star is also mother to 19-year-old Massai Zhivago Dorsey II. Long shares her teenage son with her ex-partner, actor Massai Z. Dorsey.
NO PLANS FOR MARRIAGE
As many fans await Long and longtime partner Ime’s wedding, the actress said in a "Yes, Girl" podcast episode that she does not have plans of getting married any time soon.
Aside from believing that love is complicated, Long, who has been with the NBA star since 2010, shared that she has reservations about marriage as it is a new territory for her and that she is not prepared to enter it for now.
With her creative endeavors in filmmaking and acting, there is no doubt that Long’s career will continue to flourish in the years to come.
HER FLOURISHING CAREER
Blessed with a loving family and a wonderful career, Long has remarkably been living a good life. The actress, whose acting career kicked off in 1986, could not believe she has been thriving in the entertainment industry for a long time.
Aside from being an award-winning star, Long is also a director who had her directorial debut in 2004. She worked on the music videos of R&B singer Ashanti and Gospel singer Yolanda Adams.
Long has come a long way as an actress. With her creative endeavors in filmmaking and acting, there is no doubt that her career will continue to flourish in the years to come.
Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Long shared a laugh with her fans after Kez went the extra mile of protecting himself from the deadly virus. It was the boy’s way of bringing joy to a gloomy world.
The doting mother, who cautioned her fans not to follow his son’s actions, took to Instagram to share a funny snap of her son swimming in the pool with a face mask and goggles on.
