This photo of a beautifully pregnant Nia Long strolling the beach has surfaced, and we can’t help but wonder….

Is she expecting with the very handsome NBA baller Ime Udoka (pronounced Ee-may)? If so, congrats!

The two have reportedly been dating for about a year now. Hollywood.tv spotted the them arriving for dinner at BOA Steakhouse on Sunset Blvd. back in January.

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t adore Nia Long, especially the fellas. Don’t weep, guys.

Stardust sprinkles to The Young, Black and Fabulous.

UPDATED

Friday, through People.com, NIa Long and Ime Udoka confirmed the pregnancy through this statement….

This is the most exciting time in our lives,” Long and Udoka tell PEOPLE in a statement. “Words can’t explain how thrilled we are by the new addition to our family. We feel truly blessed and appreciate all the well wishes and prayers.

Beautiful.

Udoka has played with the San Antonio Spurs, Portland Trail Blazers, and Sacramento Kings. He rejoined the Kings in November 2010, but is currently an assistant coach for the Spurs.

Hmmmmm…
