“America’s Next Top Model“ turned-housewife Eva Marcille Pigford Sterling found love in Atlanta-based attorney Michael Sterling in 2016. The duo wed in 2018 and welcomed their first child together, Maverick, the following year.
Though her life is peachy these days, it was a journey of dating mishaps, false starts, and wrong turns before finally landing her “happily ever after.”
Here are five men Eva dated along her journey to marriage.
1. Flo Rida
“I didn’t want anything too serious. Flo is a great guy … but I had just come out of a very serious relationship,” said Eva to TV One following the split.
2. Nick Cannon
The funny man has snagged some of the most beautiful women in the industry, Eva being one of them. The model and comedian casually dated from April to June 2005.
3. Henry Simmons
The short-lived romance with actor Henry Simmons lasted for five months and even resulted in a rumored engagement in 2005. Though just as quickly as things heated up between the two, they also quickly fizzled out.
4. Lance Gross
It was true love for the couple who met on Tyler Perry’s long-running show “The House of Payne” and they dated for five years. They even got engaged but called the wedding off in 2010. In the past, Eva has stated that the relationship was perfect, it just simply wasn’t their time.
5. Kevin McCall
The tumultuous relationship ended after welcoming the couple’s only child, Marley Rae in 2014. Just two months after giving birth, Eva alleges that while holding her newborn daughter the singer chased her around their shared home in a violent rage.
