He’s here! Real Housewives of Atlanta star Eva Marcille and her fiancé Michael Sterling just welcomed the newest addition to their family — a baby boy! After spending roughly 14 hours in labor, Eva finally gave birth to her son and she exclusively revealed to Life & Style the name of her bundle of joy.
“He’s gonna be junior, so Michael Todd,” she previously told Life & Style back in January at the launch Of Urban Skin RX at Target Store, host by Eva herself.
On Friday, April 13, Michael Jr. was born at 5:59 p.m. and he was 9 and a half inches long, and weighed in at 7 pounds, 3 ounces. Eva announced her baby son’s birth by sharing a photo of his adorably tiny footprints on Instagram and she wrote, “All praises be to God!” in the caption. Fans flooded the comments, congratulating Eva on her new baby. Even though this is her first child with her fiancé, she’s already a mom to daughter Marley Rae from a previous relationship.
Eva and Michael got engaged on last Christmas, and she gushed to Life & Style about how much a surprise Michael’s proposal was to her. “I was extremely surprised. It was romantic except for the fact that I had on my ugly sweater,” she joked.
Now that Eva and Michael have welcomed their son, Eva is going to start focusing her attention planning the couple’s upcoming wedding, and she revealed to E! News that she is hoping to tie the knot as early as this fall. “We have some plans but I plan on putting everything on hold for a couple of weeks before I have the baby and then spend a month or so with the baby and then go full on maniac getting my body back together,” she said. Congrats to the new mama!
