Nia Long will star in the Tyler Perry’s upcoming movie Single Moms Club (hit theaters March 14) and WeTV‘s first scripted series, the legal drama The Divide this fall. The veteran actress is covering the April 2014 issue of ESSENCE Magazine. On the cover, Long looks cute in a Michael Costello jumpsuit and Coronet earrings.

Inside, she talks to writer Jeannine Amber about the struggle of balancing a successful career and an enriching family life.

On what kind of mother she is:

I’m not a movie star mom who’s got a private chef, a nanny and a driver. My mantra is, ‘You created this, you can handle it”.

On being a great mother and enjoying every moment with her children:

I think that if you’re committed to being a great mother, single or not, you’re going to enjoy every moment you have with your children“.

On loving her family the way that it is and the public not being able to see them behind closed doors:

“I love when it’s just the three of us (her two boys, 13-year-old Massai and 2-year-old Kez) and no one can see how silly we’re acting. The preciousness of it all makes the tough days a little bit easier.”
