Nia Long is no longer a single lady!
The The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star, 44, is engaged to her boyfriend of five years, Ime Udoka, her rep confirmed to People on the evening of Tuesday, May 26.
Nia and the former pro basketball player, 37, began dating in 2010 and welcomed a son, Kez Sunday Udoka, in 2011. The actress is also a mom to a 14-year-old son, Massai Zhivago Dorsey II, from a previous relationship with actor Massai Zhivago Dorsey.

In a 2013 interview, the actress — who has also starred in popular movies Boyz n the Hood, The Best Man and Big Momma’s House, among others — opened up about finding love again.
“I think that women who are extremely driven to success, ambitious, I think they get to a point in their lives where 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?’” she said.
“I think what it means is stay in your course because it’s going to happen when it’s supposed to happen. It doesn’t happen for everyone at the same time, so you can’t compare your life to someone else’s,” Nia told Rolling Out magazine.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
