"America's Next Top Model" winner Eva Marcille confirmed that she is pregnant with her first child. She and husband Kevin McCall are grateful for the blessing of a new child as well as their successful careers.
"Being able to bring a life into the world is every woman's dream, but for me it's more than just a dream, it is a magical, mystical journey which I get to share with this amazing man," Marcille told BET.
The 28-year-old kicked off her career by winning a cycle of "America's Next Top Model" in 2005. She earned a modeling contract with Ford Models and two national campaigns that exposed her to new opportunities. She has had numerous features in magazines and currently works with L.A. Models agency.
Marcille has also had a successful acting career, with multiple guest-starring roles on such popular shows as "Everybody Hates Chris," "The Game," and "Tyler Perry's House of Payne." However, it was her role on "The Young and The Restless" that earned her two NAACP Image Awards nominations. She did not win but considered the nominations an honor.
She is currently with her partner, Kevin McCall. The two are not engaged yet, but it is clear that Marcille is thrilled to be having her first child with McCall. They have not been together long; Marcille was previously dated rapper Flo Rida, but they separated last year.
"Kevin is the only man who I should share this moment in life with," Marcille said. "My life continues to be a bundle of incredible experiences. I get to do this incredible show on BET and I get to be a mom and live this amazing life that God has bestowed upon me. Who could ask for anything more?"
Fans have reached out to the couple and wished them all the blessings of parenthood and happiness.
"Thank you all for the love and well wishes!" Marcille posted on Instagram. "Kev and I are very grateful!"
