"Can't Believe You're 8"

Nia Long and Ime Udoka celebrated their son Kez Udoka’s eighth birthday this past weekend. The celebrity mom and her son’s father had a Stranger Things themed gathering in the park where Kez’s older brother, Massai Dorsey II, served as the ultimate surprise.


The college student came all the way from Eastern Kentucky University to celebrate his younger brother’s birthday. “I love you Massai,” Nia exclaimed in the comments section of one of her oldest son’s posts about Kez’s birthday. “Thank you for coming home for this special day,” Long added. “You mean so much to your little brother.”

Massai also wrote a beautiful message to his younger brother. “Happy Birthday, Kez,” the young adult wrote online. “[I] can’t believe you’re 8,” Massai exclaimed. “I love you so so much man. I’m so proud of who you’re becoming and beyond grateful to be your big bro.”

Nia Long’s oldest son started college this fall after diligently working to do well in high school. “I’m so proud of my baby,” Nia said of Massai. “Blood, sweat, and tears…it’s the only way,” she added.

Massai also took to social media to celebrate his accomplishments. “I‘m extremely excited to announce that I have officially committed to Eastern Kentucky University,” the teen shared. “I would like to thank my coaches at EKU, my trainers, mentors, friends, teammates, and parents for helping me accomplish my goals as a student athlete,” Massai added.

Will Kez follow in his brother’s footsteps as a budding athlete in the coming years? We will have to keep watching Nia Long and her family to find out what career path her youngest son chooses. Stay tuned for more celebrity family news!
