The beautiful Nia Long is covering the April issue of JET magazine. The actress and mother of 2 dished on her relationship with San Antonio Spurs assistant coach Ime Udoka, her alternate career path, and, of course, the upcoming Best Man sequel.
On why a Best Man sequel is taking place now
“We made magic togetherâ€” so many people say that to me. And because I love the cast. The filmâ€™s director, Malcolm Lee, has been talking about it for some time and finally announced his plan during a recent cast reunion dinner.”
On details about the movie
“Well, weâ€™re not shooting until late April in Toronto so I canâ€™t say much, but everybody is really excited to revisit our stories and find out what happens next. Where is Jordan now? Did she get married? Did she break up a relationship? Itâ€™s like reading a great book; you want to see what the next chapter is.”
On her relationship with Ime and parenting her 2 sons
“Ime and I are very much a family. Weâ€™re both committed to being good to each other and being great parents. He operates on faith, and we share that. If not, it would be difficult to maintain with him working as a coach in San Antonio. The challenge is the times when Iâ€™m exhausted and here with the kids by myself. I have homework, bath time, dinner, laundry and all the other things that every mother has to do because, in essence, Iâ€™m physically a part-time single mom.”
