Marcille made the revelation to People magazine and shared a screenshot of the interview on her Instagram page Wednesday, May 1.
The chat is accompanied by cute maternity shoot photos, which were shot by Terrell Mullin. They include one where Marcille sips on a smoothie with her belly exposed. Her shirt is rolled up to reveal a make-shift face on her tummy, which has a smoothie sitting in front of it. The straw extends up to Marcille’s belly button, making it look as if it’s enjoying a beverage with the model.
“Michael and I couldn’t be more excited to announce baby No. 3 is on board!” Marcille said to the magazine.
The new addition will join the spouses’ son Michael Jr., who just turned 1 year old last month, and Marcille’s 5-year-old daughter Marley Rae, whose father is rapper-actor Kevin McCall.
“Looks like little Michael Jr. is going from the baby to the middle child, and Marley will be the boss of them all!” Marcille jokingly added.
Sterling also said in part that it was “a great blessing to grow our family with the love of my life.”
The news of Marcille’s pregnancy brought about a flood of congratulatory messages into the “America’s Next Top Model” cycle 3 winner’s comments section.
“Awww I’m so happy for you! Congratulations to you both!!! I hope it’s a girl!!”
“OMG Eva hid that very well another reunion baby. Congrats.
“Omg…congratulations to your growing family!!”
Still, some fans of “RHOA” couldn’t help but remark that the move was a way for Marcille to keep her status as a full-time housewife. Her expected return for season 12 would mark her second go-round as a peach holder.
“Well there is her peach.”
“Storyline in 5, 4, 3… ”
“Welp she has storyline now. Besides Marlo.”
“Peach is fully secured and locked in a safe for Ms Eva….and they said babies are expensive clearly not. There will be a day when all the #RHOA Kids will take over for their parents on Season 35 hennnnyyyy.”
Marcille’s new addition will be right at home with the older siblings. And even though the star’s oldest, daughter Marley, is not biologically Sterling’s own, Marcille has made it clear he is who she considers her father.
“Mike’s relationship with Marley is literally beyond words,” Marcille explained in the season 11 premiere of “RHOA.” “He came in when she was 1 year old and is the only dad that Marley knows.”
