Congrats to Eva Marcille! The America's Next Top Model Cycle 3 winner is five months pregnant with her second child, a baby boy.
The winner of America’s Next Top Model Cycle 3, who has joined the cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, is expecting her second child, she reveals to PEOPLE exclusively.
The baby boy on the way will be Marcille’s first child with boyfriend Michael Sterling, a recent candidate for the mayor of Atlanta. She also shares daughter Marley Rae, 3½, with ex Kevin McCall.
“I said, ‘Marley, would you like to have a little brother or sister?’ And she said, ‘Yes, Mom, but you know what? Maybe a baby brother. Make it a brother,’ ” the 33-year-old mom-to-be recalls of the sweet conversation between herself and her little girl.
“I thought that was adorable, but at the time, I had no idea what I was having, so my fear [about] this extremely expressive and outgoing young girl [was] if this baby came out to be a little girl, that might not be a great situation for Marley,” adds Marcille with a laugh.
“However, I found out soon after that I was having a boy, and I felt like she willed it in her favor. I’m beyond elated to be having a boy.”
