EVE, known as E-V-E, is expecting her first child after battling infertility.
The “Ryde or Die” rapper announced the news on Friday evening with an Instagram post:
“Can you believe it @mrgumball3000,” Eve captioned. “We finally get to tell everyone!!!!!, “the post said.
The joyous surprise comes years after trying to conceive with Maximillion Cooper, her husband of seven years.
In 2019, as co-host on The Talk, Eve opened up about her fertility issues saying she “felt shameful.” She expressed the pain it has caused her:
“You just think things happen naturally and I felt like I was damaged,” Eve said. “I felt like I was broken. I felt like, oh well maybe I’m not good enough. Like literally, it’s a very sad, hurtful thing.”
Eve left The Talk in 2020, due to COVID-19 travel restrictions — the rapper actress lives in London with Cooper. She also said she wanted to focus on building her family.
In another interview, Eve also shared that she had a myomectomy to remove fibroids from her uterus.
The multi-hyphenate talent is on the road to healing as she awaits the arrival of her first child due February 2022.
