On Friday (October 15), the “Let Me Blow Ya Mind” artist shared a photo of her growing belly and announced she’s expecting her first child with husband Maximillion Cooper.
“Can you believe it @mrgumball3000 we finally get to tell everyone!!!!!” the 42-year-old wrote in the caption. “You all know how long we’ve been waiting for this blessing!!! We get to meet our lil human February 2022.”
The pregnancy has been a long time coming for Eve, who currently lives in London with Cooper and his four children. In 2020, after four years as a co-host on The Talk, she announced she was leaving the show to focus on her family.
“My husband and I got to spend a ton of time together that we never did before because we were travelling so much and it was important for both of us to not be apart like we were,” she told Metro UK in a November 2020 interview. “When I was doing the show and things were normal, I was flying back and forth every two weeks and he was doing the same.”
“But even then we might spend five or seven days together and then not see each other in three weeks – that’s not a great relationship. You can’t stay married like that. We’re working on our family and I don’t want to lose any more time with him, with our family.”
Eve added having a child with Cooper was something she’d wanted for “some time” but living separate lives made it more challenging.
“It’s something we’re focused on and I’ve missed a lot of time with the bonus children I do have,” she said. “I have four bonus children and I want to spend more time with them as well.”
As Eve noted in the caption, she’s due in February 2022. HipHopDX sends our congratulations to Eve and the rest of her family.
