Well it’s official. The 43-year old beauty is finally engaged to long time boyfriend Ime Udoka. Five years, and a baby later, the couple has decided that the time is right.
And after reading up on Nia’s hubby to be, it appears that she is also a bit of a cougar. Udoka, who also happens to be the assistant coach of the Antonio Spurs, is seven years Nia’s junior.
In an interview with Rolling Out a few years ago, Nia said that she doesn’t feel the pressures that some other women feel to get married.
“I think that women who are extremely driven to success, ambitious, I think they get to a point in their lives where they’re like, ‘Uh oh. I am 30-something years old, and I don’t have a husband and I don’t have children yet and what does that mean?’ I think what it means is stay in your course because it’s going to happen when it’s supposed to happen,” Long said. “It doesn’t happen for everyone at the same time, so you can’t compare your life to someone else’s.”
Well girl, you were reaaaalll patient, and LOOK at what GOD did! Congrats! What do you guys think? Does waiting for the ring pay off in the end?
