Nia Long recently sat down with the hosts of Access Hollywood Live to discuss her new role in Showtime drama House of Lies. She also chatted it up about what life is like being a mom for the second time and whether or not a wedding is in the near future for her and boyfriend, Ime Udoka. Check out some of what she had to say.

On being a mom for the second time:

“I have a 12 year old and a 15 month old, he is so juicy. That’s my juicy baby… They have the cutest relationship. I was kind of worried because of the age gap, but they have the most delicious relationship. The little guy looks at the oldest like ‘Oh my God you’re my hero,’ and my big boy is like ‘Oh, I can actually rough house you because you’re so juicy.’ They’re awesome. It’s very different [having a baby right now] because I get very little sleep. There’s been longer than a 10-year age gap, but it’s all just so wonderful because it really enriches your life. I just have such a clear perspective of what my needs are and where I’m going and what kind of job works for me and what doesn’t work for me. Babies are like light in your life.”

On the possibility of marriage:

“I don’t know [if we'll be getting married anytime soon]. You know, he’s assistant coaching for the Spurs, so we spend a lot of time going back and forth to San Antonio. It’s tough. It’s hard. It’s a challenge. But we are committed to one another and our babies. You know, you just do what you gotta do. It was a great opportunity for him, coming from being a player. It was like the perfect way to parlay into his coaching career and so I have to support that.”

On predicting Don Cheadle’s Golden Globes win:

“We actually shot [for House of Lies] a couple of days before the Golden Globes and I said ‘I just have a feeling you’re going to win. Congratulations this is great,’ and he goes ‘I’m never winning.’ So I was watching the show and just before he went on I had this vision of him winning. So the next day we all had a table read and they scheduled the call for 6:00 am and he was so tired. He gets to work and he’s wearing his Golden Globe like a Biggie Smalls album cover. I’m like ‘You look like Biggie Smalls with a big medallion.’ It was so funny. He was so cute”

    Juicy doesn’t seem like an appropriate description of a baby or a 12 year old . . .

    I like Nia though she’s in my favorite movie Love Jones.

    I say if it is good like it is, more power to them. Every couple is different and has to do what works for them.
