Queen Latifah was all smiles walking in the posh Tribeca neighborhood of New York City with her gorgeous partner Eboni Nichols Monday.
Queen Latifah, clad in a Brooklyn hat, was in a great mood on the sunny spring evening during the walk around town.
The fun-loving "U.N.I.T.Y." singer and Nichols, a dance choreographer, had linked arms during the stroll.
The 45-year-old was dressed for fitness, wearing a white Nikes, a V-neck black tee, grey sweatpants and a sweatshirt tied around her waist.
Gotcha! Nichols points out a photographer to the Chicago star, who laughs off the attention.
Nichols, an ex member of the Los Angles Laker Girls dance troupe, casts an irritated expression toward the photog, but the queen takes it all in stride.
Nichols' choreography work has been seen in films such as Dreamgirls, TV shows including Fashion Police, and in videos for artists such as Snoop and Nick Cannon.
Latifah recently told Uptown magazine she's very upset at laws that prohibit gay marriage: "Couples should be protected under the laws of this country, period. It actually angers me."
The multi-talented entertainer said that "people's ideas in general are antiquated when it comes to who you love."
