Nia Long and son Massai,11, flex their political muscles at “Obama For America” weekend campaign blitz. Nia, who has met the President on two separate occasions, was glad to give support to Mr. Obama.


“I’ve been a supporter of President Obama from day one and for me, this time around I have that moment in my life … I looked up and I thought to myself, my grandmother is 93-years-old, she suffers from Alzheimer’s, my mother is in her 60′s and I have an 11-year-old and a 7-month-old. I want to make sure they have the proper health car as they start to get older. My son will start going to college in less than 10 years. All of the issues that President Obama is working on have more relevance to my life than ever before,” said Long.

The actress recently told Essence magazine that she enjoys motherhood with all of its challenges. “Motherhood is not easy, but it’s natural,” said Nia. “I worked hard to have the career I wanted, but I’ve also been deliberate about my personal life. None of this is a mistake.”
