Actress Nia Long, 40, has revealed that she “almost fainted” when doctors told her that she was pregnant with her second child.
“I was supposed to go to Ghana to do a film and that’s when I found out I was pregnant,” Long explained to Usweekly during the BET Awards last month. “I had a doctor’s appointment to get the yellow fever shot and they were like, ‘Miss Long, we can’t give you a shot.’ I almost fainted. It was the best moment and the sweetest surprise ever.”
The mom to be is currently six months along and is ‘feeling great’.
“I was so horribly sick for four and a half months,” Long explains of her first trimester. “Now I have energy, besides a little heartburn here and there, and I’m doing excellent. The baby is huge!”
This will be Nia’s first child with NBA player Ime Udoka, 33; she has a 10-year-old son, Massai Jr., with ex-boyfriend Massai Z. Dorsey.
