The perfect moniker! Eva Marcille — who is pregnant and expecting a baby boy with fiancé Michael Sterling — spoke exclusively with Life & Style about becoming a second-time mom, and divulged the name she’s picked out for baby No. 2.
“He’s gonna be a junior, so Michael Todd [is the name]!” the 33-year-old America’s Next Top Model alum — who also shares daughter Marley Rae, 3, with ex Kevin McCall — revealed as she promoted the launch of Urban Skin RX for Target in NYC on Jan. 18. According to Eva, carrying little Michael has been a vastly different experience compared to her first pregnancy.

“I know kind of what to expect and I’m not as anal. I’m not always like, ‘Hey! What are you doing in there? I know what you’re doing in there. You’re hanging out.’ I’m a lot less sick and I feel fewer cravings,” she said. “Last time I had, like, chicken salad on my pizza-type cravings. Now I’m like, just give me fruit with chili peppers.”
During her chat with Life & Style, the expectant TV personality also shared her excitement over joining the cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta for its tenth season. She made her grand debut on the long-running Bravo series on Sunday, Jan. 28. As viewers witnessed, Eva unexpectedly found herself at the center of some major drama after mentioning that co-star Cynthia Bailey’s new beau, Will Jones, had a girlfriend around the same the couple started dating.
Despite the chaos that may have ensued while filming RHOA, Eva told Life & Style that she had a blast working with NeNe Leakes and the rest of the ladies. “It’s a new territory. This type of reality TV was new to me, but I can say I lucked out because I wasn’t completely like a fish out of water because I had NeNe,” she said. “The only reason why I really did the show was because I’ve known NeNe for years.”
The stunning reality star added, “Then moving to Atlanta to be with my fiancé, who was running for mayor at the time — she was like my tour guide so to say, through Atlanta, and in addition to showing me where to go shopping and good nail techs, she also showed me her girlfriends, which were the girls on Housewives.”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs on Bravo Sundays at 8 p.m. EST.
