Is Nia Long married?

While Long is not married, she is currently engaged to long-time boyfriend and former NBA player Ime Udoka. The two went public back in 2010 before getting engaged in 2015.

Udoka is currently the assistant coach for the Brooklyn Nets, after retiring from his seven year NBA career.

In 2020, Long went on ESSENCE’s “Yes, Girl!” podcast where she opens up about her feelings on marriage.

“Love is complicated, and then you start a marriage, which I’ve never been married. And there’s a reason for that because I don’t know that I need to say ‘I do’ to prove to you that I love you. But also, what does marriage really [mean]… that you own me now and I own you? I don’t get that part.”

So while Long and Udoka don’t plan on getting married anytime soon, they seem very happy the way they are.

Despite not being married, the two have raised two children together.

Long had her first son, Massai Zhivago Dorsey II, 20, with ex-boyfriend Massai Z. Dorsey back in 2000. She then had her second son Kez Sunday Udoka, 9, almost 10 years later with fiance Udoka.
