‘RHOA’ Newbie Eva Marcille & Fiancé Michael Sterling Welcome A Baby Boy And Share Precious First Photo
Eva Marcille welcomed a son with her fiancé, Mike Sterling, on Friday. The "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star announced the happy news on her Instagram account. 

Eva and Michael's baby boy, named Michael Jr., arrived at 5:59 p.m. and weighed 7lbs. 3oz, and was 19 1/2 in in length.

A source close to the model said, "She’s so happy their little prince is finally here!"

The proud new mom shared a photo of her newborn son’s information on Instagram, writing, "All praises be to God!"

A cute stamped image of her son's tiny feet was also shown with his information card.

Take a look, below:

Marcille took to social media on Thursday, sharing a selfie as she prepared to give birth. She captioned the photo of herself in the hospital by writing, "So ready…. the calm before the storm 😳."

The "I Think I Love My Wife" star also shared a photo with her followers on Friday morning as she awaited the birth of her son. She captioned the picture, "Still at it😳 Come on Mikey!"

Her fiancé Mike also hopped on Instagram to share his feelings as he awaited the birth of his first child.

Sterling wrote, "Just the rumblings of an imperfect expectant dad at the hospital patiently waiting for his son to arrive into the world."

Eva became engaged to Atlanta-based attorney, Sterling, in December of last year. This is the first child for Sterling, but the second child for Marcille. 

The former "America's Next Top Model" star also has a daughter named Marley Rae with her ex-boyfriend, rapper Kevin McCall. 

Marley was born in January 2014 before their split months later. The former couple had a nasty break-up and Eva later revealed she had full custody of her daughter.

Marcille announced her pregnancy back in November with an adorable photo shoot for People Magazine.

The photos show Marcille, Sterling, and her daughter Marley as they enjoyed a little tea party. 

Marcille told the publication that her daughter was excited to have a sibling, hoping at the time to have a baby brother.

Eva shared, "I said, ‘Marley, would you like to have a little brother or sister?’ And she said, ‘Yes, Mom, but you know what? Maybe a baby brother. Make it a brother."

The reality star continued, "I thought that was adorable, but at the time, I had no idea what I was having, so my fear [about] this extremely expressive and outgoing young girl [was] if this baby came out to be a little girl, that might not be a great situation for Marley."

Eva and Michael were thrilled to be having a child together, something that ruffled her ex-boyfriend McCall's feathers. He lashed out at Eva on social media, even suggesting he was disowning his daughter, Marley.

Marcille told People in November that they had already selected a name for their unborn child. She shared that they would be naming their son after his father.

Eva said, "Also known as Mikey — that’s what Marley calls him. We have a junior, which is kind of terrifying to me because Michael is the most ambitious person I’ve ever met."

Marcille added, "So for our son to now have to live up to his dad, it lets me know that there is a great promise on his life, but it’s also terrifying because he has so much to live up to."

Eva celebrated the impending arrival of her second child last month. She opened up about planning the event in an interview with US Weekly

Marcille shared, "I did royal blue, purple and gold color scheme to bring in that royal feeling. Michael is a pretty easygoing guy, he let me do all the planning for the shower. However Marley definitely had a say in the cake and dessert table."

Congrats, Eva & Mike!
