She’s already five months!

Nia Long shows off her bump in the press room of the BET Awards, held Sunday at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.

The actress, 40, told reporters at the show that the baby she expects with basketball player Ime Udoka this fall was quite unexpected.

“I was supposed to go to Ghana to do a film and that’s when I found out I was pregnant! I had a doctor’s appointment to get the yellow fever shot and they were like, ‘Miss Long, we can’t give you a shot,'” she explained.

“I almost fainted. It was the best moment and the sweetest surprise ever.”
