The former America’s Next Top Model winner, actress, and current television personality, Eva Marcille has a bun in the oven!
The beauty announced that she and Atlanta mayoral candidate Michael Sterling are expecting a baby boy. Eva is 5 months along and this news comes just a month after the announcement that she will be joining the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast for its 10th season.
“I’m so excited to join NeNe [Leakes] and the ladies for the 10th season of RHOA! Atlanta and America, get ready!”
After she won the 2004 cycle of America’s Next Top Model, she landed roles on The Young And The Restless and movies such as I Think I Love My Wife, Crossover and Sister Code. Her debut on Real Housewives will be aired later this season.
This is her first son, but second child, as she shares a daughter, Marley, with ex-boyfriend Kevin McCall. When describing how she told her daughter about the impending arrival of her sibling, Eva says that Marley was very excited and that she even guessed the gender of the baby correctly saying that “maybe a baby brother, make it a brother.” Turns out little Marley was right on the money.
Eva said she had no idea she was pregnant for nearly two months but just felt off. She was having symptoms that she didn’t recognize as pregnancy so that wasn’t even an option that crossed her mind. In fact, she visited her doctor thinking maybe she had a cyst or a fibroid, but no, she was actually pregnant!
Eva says the pregnancy was very unexpected and totally unplanned, as she and Micheal had so much going on with his mayoral campaign but she believes that everything does happen for a reason and they’re happy to be ushering in a new life into the world.
These two are quite opposite, Michael is incredibly even-keeled and calm, while Eva is a bit of a spitfire with a whole lot of personality. Which lead to Michael being a bit stunned and nonreactive to the news, but once it settled in, he was incredibly happy!
Congrats to the family on their little bundle.
