'America's Next Top Model' Winner Eva Marcille Expecting a Baby Boy
By Jennifer Drysdale
Congrats to Eva Marcille!
The America's Next Top Model Cycle 3 winner is five months pregnant with her second child, a baby boy, ET confirms.
Marcille's soon-to-be bundle of joy will be her first child with boyfriend Michael Sterling, a recent candidate for the mayor of Atlanta. The 33-year-old model, who has joined the cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, shares 3-year-old daughter Marley Rae with ex Kevin McCall.
Marcille tells People that her pregnancy was unplanned, and she was shocked to find out she was expecting after a visit to the doctor.
"[My doctor] did an ultrasound and lo and behold, we were seven and a half weeks pregnant,” she recalls. “I was like, ‘What?!’ I was expecting the worst only to find out I was carrying a life. It was crazy.”
“I was shocked and terrified all at the same time,” she admits. “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.”
Now, the couple couldn't be more excited, and have already decided to name their son after Sterling: Michael Todd Sterling Jr.
“So for our son to now have to live up to his dad, it lets me know that there is a great promise on his life," she says of her son on the way, whom her daughter already calls "Mikey." "But it’s also terrifying because he has so much to live up to."
