Eva Marcille is in a great space right now. The America’s Next Top Model winner and proud mother of one is happily engaged to former Atlanta mayoral candidate, Michael Sterling, and is glowingly expecting her second child, first with Sterling.

In a new interview with Essence, Marcille shared that she and the popular attorney have decided to wed in the city where they fell in love.

“We fell in love with each other in Atlanta,” the 33-year-old revealed. “We met in Atlanta and fell in love in Atlanta. My fiance is from Beaumont, Texas, and I’m from Los Angeles so I think it only appropriate for us to actually get married like where we met.”

May 2018 bring you much Joy!!! Happy New Year!!!🍾🎉

While she’s thrilled to walk down the aisle, the Real Housewives of Atlanta co-star admits she didn’t expect the love of her life to propose so soon.

“I am so excited to like start the planning and preparing the process for my wedding. You know, just the whole bridal shower, the party, the dress. I can say that I didn’t anticipate being engaged right now. It came as a surprise. I thought that he would wait a little bit after having the baby but, hey, like they say, if you like it then put a ring on it, right?”

I said yes!!!! 💍

The “Deuces” artist made headlines when he bragged about still being listed as her partner on Google, a move the model ignored. In fact, she’s made sure to block her ex, both literally and figuratively, from her life.

“We don’t have a relationship,” said Marcille. “He’s blocked on all my social media. I have full custody of my daughter and her dad is Michael Sterling, so he is a blast from the past and a memory.”
