‘RHOA’ Newbie Eva Marcille Pregnant With Second Child: “I Was Shocked and Terrified”
Eva revealed the news via People, sharing in one fell swoop that she's pregnant — and it's a boy!
"I'm beyond elated to be having a boy," Eva says, insisting her daughter, 3-and-a-half-year-old Marley Rae, was hoping for a brother.
But it took a little while to get excited after the initial shock of the pregnancy set in.
“I was shocked and terrified all at the same time,” the America's Next Top Model winner admits of finding out she was pregnant after some "super weird" symptoms.
“It was not planned — it was very unexpected, and Michael was in the middle of this mayoral campaign where being pregnant was not a part of the agenda.”
Michael, a lawyer and aspiring politician in the ATL, had a similar reaction before the excitement really set in.
“When I initially told him, he was like, ‘Oh, okay,’ and I could tell he was surprised and didn’t want to overreact or react in a way that he would regret or that would scare me,” the 33-year-old adds.
"A few days later... we talked about it again and he was excited. Which was a huge relief to me — excitement is what we want.”
In fact, the couple has already picked out a name!
However, the moniker they've chosen for Marley's little brother isn't exactly the mom to be's first choice.
“I was thinking about naming him after my grandfather, whose name is Major,” she says. “It’s a way to keep his name and his spirit alive and bring it into our family.”
But they're opting to go the more traditional route by naming the baby after his father: Michael Todd Sterling Jr.
Michael Jr. is due circa March 2018, making Eva about five months pregnant.
We can't wait to see that bump, girl!
We hope the newest Bravolebrity brings up the baby news at the RHOA Season 10 reunion, which will tape early next year.
Meanwhile, co-star Kenya is undergoing IVF treatments with her husband, Marc Daly, so we could be welcoming two new baby peaches to RHOA in the near future.
