Actress Nia Long donned a stunning photo on the cover of Jet’s April issue. The actress, who is a single mother of two boys, had her second son out-of-wedlock at the age of 40. In 2011, Long graced the cover of Jet in the nude during her second pregnancy, encouraging women to not feel pressured to have a baby with or without a husband.
Apparently, the actress is finally ready to tie the knot. In her recent interview with Jet, she revealed that she and NBA baller boyfriend/father of her second son, Ime Udoka, went ring shopping in San Antonio. “Last time I visited San Antonio we looked at rings,” Long said. Adding: “But I’m not in any rush.” Well, of course she’s not rushing because she’s already attached to her boyfriend eternally through their son.
There is one woman, though, who does not have a child and isn’t rushing marriage: Gabrielle Union.Last year, 40-year-old Union revealed her comfort in being Wade’s girlfriend. “…we like each other a lot and we both failed miserably the last time either one of us got married. So, I think we’re doing it slow, you know what I mean? I think when you rush in, then people have cräp to say. If you go too slow, people still have stuff to say, so, I think we have to just take it at the pace that’s great for us. But, who knows? I’m open to everything, but right now I just like saying “my boyfriend, my boyfriend, my boyfriend D Wade’. And then maybe later, provided my eggs aren’t dust, we’ll see what I can (coughs) cough out.”
