The stars looked happy and relaxed this Wednesday, August 28, when they were pictured sitting together in a VIP section at the USTA National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, New York.
She and Nichols, 41, couldn’t hide their excitement as the match got interesting.
The lovebirds — who’ve always been low-key about their relationship — seemed cheery as ever, months after being spotted on mommy duty with their child.
Readers know that this May, Radar revealed the first photos of Latifah and Nichol’s secret baby.
“Latifah has never been so full of life!” a source close to the star exclusively told Radar. “Eboni and the baby have given Latifah something very special to live for.”
Latifah and Nichols met in 2009 on the set of Dancing with The Stars and began dating in 2013. Though they’re remained ultra-private about their romance, they’re often seen canoodling on romantic dates and Hollywood galas.
After going through a health crisis and losing her mother in 2018, Latifah revealed she was ready to settle down and start a family — and now, it seems she has!
“I had to get a lot of partying out of my system early in life for about 40 years. You know what I'm saying. I'm good now. I think I'm ready,” the actress told E! News in 2016.
She even revealed her baby plans, without divulging too much.
"Maybe I'll adopt a child that's not necessarily a baby. There are a lot of kids that need love out there. I want to be there for somebody. I got to get all this stuff and give it somebody,” said Latifah at the time.
And two years later, Nichols was caught sporting a massive baby bump!
Now that they’re mothers, the Hollywood star and the former L.A. Lakers cheerleader are focusing on spending time with family.
However, the two did take a day off to ravel in the industry glamour at this year’s MTV VMAs.
Keeping Romance Alive
At this week’s US Open match, they also opted for a solo outing.
Latifah and Nichols looked love-struck while enjoying their fun day date.
Latifah rocked an all-black outing with an embellished top, while Nichols looked sweet in a neon yellow sweater and floral skirt.
So Much Fun!
And, just like the rest of the audience, they couldn’t stop cheering the tennis pros on!
