Eva Marcille’s Baby News Might Be New, But Her Baby Bump Is Far Along
Less than a week ago, model and actress Eva Marcille shared the news that she and boyfriend Michael Sterling, a recent candidate for mayor of Atlanta, were expecting their first child together, her second. She made the big reveal in a story for PEOPLE, and in the photos used for it, the America’s Next Top Model winner looked like she was newly pregnant:
However, the 33-year-old is actually five months along and due in the spring. She shared the first photo of her growing belly on Instagram this week, and as you can see, her bump game is pretty strong — and beautiful:
And while Marcille and Sterling are beyond excited about their growing family, sadly, her ex, Kevin McCall, has tried to be as negative as possible on social media about it all. The 32-year-old has threatened his ex’s new partner and tried publicly disparage her in the midst of her baby news:
McCall has spoken in the past about not being able to visit with his daughter, but we highly doubt that this type of behavior (if you’re threatening people publicly, what are you doing privately?) will help in the efforts to make that happen.
As for Marcille, she’s focused on the baby she has on the way, which as she told PEOPLE, is a boy — exactly what 3-year-old Marley was hoping for.
“I said, ‘Marley, would you like to have a little brother or sister?’ And she said, ‘Yes, Mom, but you know what? Maybe a baby brother. Make it a brother,’” Marcille said. “I thought that was adorable, but at the time, I had no idea what I was having, so my fear [about] this extremely expressive and outgoing young girl [was] if this baby came out to be a little girl, that might not be a great situation for Marley. However, I found out soon after that I was having a boy, and I felt like she willed it in her favor. I’m beyond elated to be having a boy.”
