Nia Long Defied the Odds To Get Pregnant

After being told by doctors that it would be difficult to conceive, actress Nia Long, who is expecting a baby with her NBA boyfriend Ime Udoka, turned to faith.

“I honestly asked God for this,” the 40-year-old actress reveals. “I remember I was driving home from the doctor, and I called Ime, and I was like, ‘Babe, I’m really kind of sad right now … the doctor actually said if I wanted to have more children, it would be hard.’”

“The next time [Ime] came to visit, he said, ‘I don’t believe that.’ I said, ‘You don’t?’ He said, ‘No.’ And I said, ‘Good, me neither,’” the Boyz n the Hood alum recalls. “Then I got pregnant.”
