She’s starring in Tyler Perry‘s new film The Single Moms Club, which opens in theaters March 14. Long is also set to star in WeTV’s first scripted series, titled “The Divide,” which will air in the fall.
In the interview, she discusses juggling her career and family life. She’s currently raising two sons with her boyfriend Ime Udoka, who is an assistant coach for the San Antonio Spurs. Their son Kez is 2 years old and her son from a previous relationship Massai is 13. “I’m not a movie star mom who’s got a private chef, a nanny, and a driver,” Long revealed. “My mantra is, ‘You created this, you can handle it.'”
Part of that balance is trying to spend as much time with her children as possible when she’s not away on a project. “I think that if you’re committed to being a great mother, single or not, you’re going to enjoy every moment you have with your children.”
