While you may have been tuned in front and center to U.S. Open matches from the seat of your couch, many people, celebrities in particular, have been flocking to Flushing Meadows, Queens (New York City) to see everyone from Serena Williams to recently eliminated fan favorites Naomi Osaka and Coco Gauff compete. One of those celebrities who has consistently shown up for matches has been Queen Latifah. The 49-year-old musician and actress has fangirled for Serena and Serbian player Novak Djokovic since the tournament began (including yesterday) and is likely to show up a few more times before it ends on September 8.
By her side to enjoy all of the action has been Queen’s rumored fiancée, Eboni Nichols. The two cheered on the players and chatted throughout the matches with each other and with spectators around them. The who have actually been attending the U.S. Open together since 2016.
Queen hasn’t publicly confirmed the status of her relationship with Eboni, but she’s become more comfortable being seen out with her at public events. The women were last seen at the MTV Video Music Awards in Newark last month. The Oscar-nominated actress walked the carpet alone but was photographed during the show sitting next to Eboni.
Last fall it was reported that the two welcomed a son. Back in October, Eboni was spotted with a baby bump, and this spring she was seen out with a baby boy and what appeared to be an engagement ring. The arrival of Eboni’s son came not long after Queen shared that she was ready to become a mom.
Queen and Eboni have been rumored to have been an item since 2013.
