Kevin McCall Indirectly Responds to Eva Marcille Saying Michael Sterling Is Daughter’s Father

Essence magazine published an interview with model Eva Marcille on Wednesday, and a day later singer-songwriter Kevin McCall responded without writing a word.

Marcille and McCall had been a couple, but they split up in 2015. In November, McCall erased their 3-year-old daughter Marley Rae from his Instagram account—and his life—after Marcille posted a picture of Marley with her fiancé, Michael Sterling. She considers the new man in her life to be her daughter's father—and McCall is just a memory. 

“We don’t have a relationship,” Marcille said. “He's blocked on all my social media. I have full custody of my daughter and her dad is Michael Sterling, so he is a blast from the past and a memory.”

As the statements from the former America’s Next Top Model contestant went viral, getting picked up by other news outlets, McCall retweeted one of the articles. He didn’t add a response, just shared a story written by with his 141,000 followers.

McCall’s name came up in Marcille’s interview after Essence asked about controversial statements McCall made about black women working too much, but the ANTM cycle 3 winner she doesn't think much about her ex-boyfriend.

“I do not let him affect my day-to-day in any shape, form or fashion,” she said. “But I do pray him success, and more so than anything, peace of mind. Marley is the priority, the biggest priority of my life, outside of my newest child and my fiancé. And at the end of the day, despite personal feelings, she deserves a level of stability, tranquility, and sanity. And [that's] my job as a parent, no matter how hard it is for me to provide that for her, but that's my job.”

McCall aside, Marcille is looking forward to her life with Sterling and their future baby. She announced she was five months pregnant in November.

Marcille and Sterling plan to marry in 2018. “We met in Atlanta and fell in love in Atlanta. My fiancé is from Beaumont, Texas, and I'm from Los Angeles so I think it only appropriate for us to actually get married like where we met,” she told the magazine.

Marley, of course, will be involved in the wedding. “She's going to be my flower girl and she's super excited,” the model said. “We talk about the wedding often, about her being a part of it and her picking out a fancy dress. She talks about her baby brother every day. The bigger my stomach gets, the more she's understanding that there's a baby in there. She's getting really excited about it and becoming a big sister.”

If a husband, baby and wedding seemed like a lot on Marcille’s plate for 2018, she will also appear on Season 10 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.


May 2018 bring you much Joy!!! Happy New Year!!!__
