For more than a decade, Udoka has been in a relationship with actress Nia Long. You might have seen her in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Soul Food, Third Watch, Boyz n The Hood, Friday, Empire and more.
Long and Udoka have a son together and have been engaged since 2015. They haven't wed and don't plan on doing so, said Long, who is not a fan of marriage.
“Love is complicated, let’s just start there,” Long told Essence in 2020. “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.”
Not surprisingly, once news broke of Udoka getting the Celtics gig, his love life became a major topic on Twitter.
This is a massive day for the 43-year-old Udoka, who is about to become a head coach for the first time.
Hopefully he and his fiancée can take some time and celebrate.
