Christmas was definitely good to Eva Marcille yesterday. The winner of the third cycle of America’s Next Top Model was gifted with an engagement ring from beau Mike Sterling. Marcille shared a photo of the round-cut diamond solitaire on a silver band via Instagram with a short and sweet caption: “I said yes!!!!”
Marcille, 33, and Sterling, 34, first became public with their love at the BET Awards in 2016. And recently, Sterling announced that he and Marcille were expecting a baby boy coming Spring 2018.
Marcille seems to be very happy considering the drama she continues to endure with her ex, Kevin McCall. McCall is the father of her first child, 3-year-old Marley, and from what we’ve all seen, especially from his appearance on Iyanla Fix my Life, the 32-year-old is still battling some unresolved anger issues. Sterling, on the other hand, is an Atlanta-based attorney and former mayoral candidate of the city. He seems to be a big departure from Marcille’s turbulent relationship with McCall. Currently, Sterling is one of Russell Simmons’ attorneys, defending him amid sexual assault and rape allegations that came out this year.
After hearing about Marcille’s engagement news, I am looking forward to seeing her on this season’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta. She confirmed earlier this year that she would be joining the cast, but People reported that she will be a “friend of the housewives” and not a full-time cast member. The show is seven episodes deep and still no Marcille. Come on, Bravo! We want to see our girl! (And we want to hear more of her gushing about Sterling). Until then, check out this photo of Nene Leakes, Cynthia Bailey and the newly-engaged beauty below:
