Singer and actress Eve Jihan Jeffers, known simply as Eve, has revealed that she is expecting her first child! The 42-year-old mom-to-be will be welcoming her little one with her husband, entrepreneur Maximillian Cooper, who is already a father of four.

Eve shared two stunning photos to Instagram to show off her growing baby bump. She revealed that her little one is expected to arrive in February of 2022. The Queens star captioned her announcement, “Can you believe it @mrgumball3000 we finally get to tell everyone!!!!! ❤️ You all know how long we’v been waiting for this blessing!!! We get to meet our lil human February 2022 🥰” Maximillian shared the same images to his Instagram page with the caption, “Very excited to share this news… we have a lil human on the way!”

While this little one will be Eve’s first biological child, she has had plenty of experience as a stepmom to Maximillian’s children. He has four teenage children from a previous relationship: Lotus, 19, Jagger, 17, Cash, 15, and Mini, 13.

The “Who’s That Girl?” singer and Maximillian have been together for over a decade. The couple tied the knot in June of 2014 after four years of dating. Last year, Eve spoke with People about what it was like adjusting to life as a stepmom. “It’s been now 10 and a half years I’ve been in their lives and they’ve been in my life. They’ve grounded me. In the beginning, when I first met my husband, then-boyfriend, I was like, ‘This is never gonna last because you got four kids! How’s this gonna work?’ But then I met the kids and honestly was like ‘Wow, kids are amazing.'”

She did admit that the adjustment wasn’t easy. “I will say it took years, though, I’m not gonna lie. It did take two or three years to adjust, just our relationship with the kids. But I have to say I’m very lucky. I feel very, very lucky that I had my insta-kids — I call them my bonus children!”

Congratulations to Eve and Maximillian on the news of their first child together! We wish them all the best as they prepare to welcome a new member of the family.
