Famed actress Nia Long is a new Boston Celtics fan!

The reason? Well, she has a good one. Her fiancé, Ime Udoka, just nabbed the head coaching position for the Boston Celtics. The Best Man actress hopped on Instagram to celebrate her man’s new gig by rocking a symoblic Celtics No. 18 jersey in a cute selfie.

“I like the number 18. The legacy continues @celtics,” she captioned her post, with the hashtag, #coachudoka18, noting her future husband will chase the storied franchise’s 18th title. Noice!
