Eva Marcille is about to have her hands very full! The former Real Housewives of Atlanta star was already busy with her three children and marriage to Michael Sterling. And she was tapped to star in Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip season 2. Now she’s surprising fans with her next “project.”
As reported by Hollywood Life, Eva took to her Instagram page to announce that she is expecting her fourth child! Eva, who boasts 4.6 million followers, told fans “the cat is out of the bag!” Her post featured a cute pic of Eva and Michael hugging on what looks like a beach vacation. She gushed, “And another one!!!! We are so excited that the cat is out of the bag!” Eva joked, “There goes my summer!” before concluding, “But I could not be happier.”
The season 3 America’s Next Top Model winner also shared Michael’s Instagram post. He wrote, “My wife, Eva and I are so excited to welcome our new addition, baby Madison, into the Sterling family coming this fall.”
While fans original thought it was an April Fool’s joke, given that she posted on April 1st, the warm wishes already started to pour in. Former RHOA costar Cynthia Bailey questioned, “Omg!!!! Is the real? Sooooo excited.” RHUGT castmates Dorinda Medley, Tamra Judge, Vicki Gunvalson and Phaedra Parks also commented with their well wishes. Even housewives super fan Nicki Minaj liked the post.
Eva and Michael currently share two kids together. They welcomed son Michael Jr. in 2018 and just one year later, son Maverick joined their family. Eva also has 8 year old daughter Marley Rae from a previous relationship. But Marley is so close with step-father Michael, she legally took his last name in 2020.
While Eva has discussed wanting to expand her family, she also has acknowledged the complications of her past pregnancies. In March of 2020, she told The Daily Dish, “I always said I wanted five, right? Well, I said I wanted none, and then I met the man of my dreams, and I said I wanted five, but now after having complications, like, a lot of complications with the last pregnancy, I’m not super eager to, like, jump in and find out that it’s positive on the stick.”
Congrats to Eva and her growing family!
