Nia Long was candid when she admitted that balancing motherhood and career is not easy and she’s so not balanced.

“I just do what is necessary in the moment if it’s the kids the need attention. I take care of that…My brain is like split in half. Half is for myself and half is for the kids.” She continued “And I think that is a mother’s journey to make sure that they come first but to never loose yourself in the process,” she added. “So when I go from being mom in my Uggs and my jeans and my t-shirt, and I have to come walk in these heels, I’m like, ‘Can somebody carry me because I forgot how to walking heels?’ And I think every mom feels that way.”

    No, I said sans the attitude. Meaning “without”. Most educated beautiful black actresses have a little pretense. She seems so care free and humble.

  • MiaSara

    You think she’s stuck up? She seems pretty down to earth to me. Her children are beautiful!

  • tarrilove

    She is so beautiful and classy sans the bougie attitude. I wish her more success, I hope they give her more serious roles. Instead of girlfriend and mom roles all the time.
