‘RHOA’ Star Eva Marcille Shares Photos From Flower-Themed Baby Shower

BY JASMINE GRANT · 

Eva Marcille is about to be a mom for the third time as she awaits the birth of her son, and her pregnancy glow could light up the entire city of Atlanta! To celebrate the new addition to the Sterling family, the model invited her family, friends and Real Housewives Of Atlanta castmates over for an oh-so-floral baby shower.

For this chic “flower shower,” Marcille dressed in a white, one-shoulder maxi dress and adorned her wavy pixie cut with a bright and beautiful flower crown. “My shower was so bomb!!!,” she wrote on Instagram, sharing a few precious moments from her special day. “So much love, so much support!!! Just a few pics but so many more memories.”

The photo series shows Marcille dining and laughing with her castmates like Cynthia Bailey, Nene Leakes, Kandi Burruss and Porsha Williams. The ladies all rocked flower crowns and other boho-chic attire. Despite the rumored drama happening as the cast is currently filming, everyone seemed to be getting along in the moment.https://www.instagram.com/p/B2cp5RFlTUO/embed/captioned/?cr=1&v=12&wp=598&rd=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.essence.com&rp=%2Flove%2Feva-marcille-third-pregnancy-baby-shower-baby-name-rhoa%2F#%7B%22ci%22%3A0%2C%22os%22%3A5714.5%2C%22ls%22%3A4277.800000011921%2C%22le%22%3A4592.5%7D

Marcille gave a special shout out to Bailey. Despite being accused of throwing shade towards the fellow model in earlier episodes, it seems the two have developed quite the bond. “Words can’t express my appreciation for our friendship,” Marcille shared. “I adore you on so many levels and I’m so happy to call you my FRIEND🌻 love you to the moon and back “

The model mommy followed up with a hashtag “Maverick Sterling.” which is presumed to be her baby boy’s name.https://www.instagram.com/p/B2cN4w0Fv3h/embed/captioned/?cr=1&v=12&wp=598&rd=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.essence.com&rp=%2Flove%2Feva-marcille-third-pregnancy-baby-shower-baby-name-rhoa%2F#%7B%22ci%22%3A1%2C%22os%22%3A5725.600000008941%2C%22ls%22%3A4277.800000011921%2C%22le%22%3A4592.5%7D

Jazmine Sullivan Reveals The Pettiest Thing She’s Ever Done To An Ex

NOTE: THE “BUST YOUR WINDOWS” SINGER DRAWS AN INTERESTING LINE BETWEEN PETTY AND EMOTIONAL.Jazmine Sullivan unCovered 2021https://imasdk.googleapis.com/js/core/bridge3.471.1_en.html#goog_693441927Volume 0% BY BRANDE VICTORIAN · 

In January, Jazmine Sullivan gave us the widely appreciated 14-track EP Heaux Tales, but the Philly-bred singer has more tales to tell.

In between takes for our July/August issue, the headliner for our 2021 ESSENCE Festival of Culture presented by Coca-Cola, gave us a little personal tea on her romantic past through laughs and the raspy contralto voice we’ve been in love with since 2008’s Fearless. Keeping in line with the theme of her latest project, we asked Sullivan what’s the prettiest thing she’s ever done to an ex and she told us: “Fired Him.”Jazmine Sullivan Performance EFOC 2021https://imasdk.googleapis.com/js/core/bridge3.471.1_en.html#goog_693441929Volume 0% 

Laughing, she added, “That’s not right,” before confirming “Bust Your Windows,” from her debut studio album, wasn’t just a song title. “I don’t think that’s petty. I feel like that was raw emotion in the moment so that doesn’t count as petty. For me, pettiness is when you take the time and think about it, like how can I get you back, she said. “Busting the windows was just about being a hurt woman and this is the consequence of that.”

Revealing that she’s currently in love, Sullivan said maybe her current relationship will spark some love songs down the line. We know whatever this beauty brings to the table, the girls will be here for it.

Learn more about Jazmine Sullivan’s journey to Heaux Tales and her relationship with Issa Rae in the behind-the-scenes making of her ESSENCE cover in the video above. The July/August issue of ESSENCE is currently on newsstands.
