Actress and rapper Eve Jihan Jeffers, commonly known by her moniker Eve, has announced the arrival of her first child! Eve and her husband, entrepreneur Maximillian Cooper welcomed their little one earlier this month on February 1st. The newborn is Maximillian’s fifth child.
“Words can’t describe this feeling,” the Queens star wrote on becoming a mom. “Our Beautiful boy was born Feb 1st 2022,” she wrote before revealing her son’s long name: Wilde Wolf Fife Alexander Somers Cooper. Maximillian shared the same image Eve shared, just a bit zoomed in, with a similar caption but added, “Let the wild rumpus begin!”
Eve and Maximillion have been together for over a decade. The “Who’s That Girl?” singer married her partner in June of 2014 after four years of dating. While Wilde is the actress’s first child, she has plenty of experience as stepmom to Maximillion’s four children. The entrepreneur has four children from a previous relationship: Lotus, 19, Jagger, 17, Cash, 15, and Mini, 13.
Eve spoke with People in 2020 about becoming a stepmom to Maximillion’s children. 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.” She admitted that it wasn’t easy right off the bat to be a stepmom. “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 Maximillion on welcoming their first child together! We wish them lots of love as they welcome Wilde into the family.
