Nia Long recently gave birth to her beautiful son Kez Sunday Udoka, since then she’s been keeping a low profile.
We haven’t heard too much from her, but it looks like she’s breaking some of that silence!
The 41-year-old actress took some time to talk to The Urban Daily about how her son has changed her and how she is finding herself.
She told the site:
I am the happiest that I’ve been probably in my life. It’s funny because I haven’t done a film since Mooz-Lum so I’m very ready to get back to work. I thought that I was right basically when I was feeling well and I had this surge of energy. But I realized that energy wasn’t about getting back to work, it was about the rebirth of myself through giving birth. Baby Kez Sunday has given me a bit of a rebirth and it’s really nice because I’m able to look at life through his eyes. You have to pay attention to the smallest thing from the birds chirping to the dog barking across the street. These are the things that make the world go around today. When you look at life in its simplest form, stress and worry isn’t the cornerstone of your life. Experiencing life through that lens is refreshing.
I’m just trying to balance my personal life with my career. Both are equally important and the one thing I don’t want to have is regrets in not having these moments with my babies. My eleven-year old is running the show. He’s like “mom when are you making another movie.” [But] My little guy is just looking at the trees amazed by his fingers, his tongue…the smiling. I wanna give him…I’m still a nursing mommy. I have to do this for him. We’ll see. I am true believer that good work finds you and I hope that I’ve established enough of a career of myself that when they want Nia Long they’ll find Nia Long.
We’re glad Nia is enjoying motherhood and finding a whole new side of herself! We hope to see her back on the big screen soon.
