’Case of the Middle Child’: Eva Marcille’s Oldest Son Fights for Attention In Cute Video

Eva Marcille is all about her kids, showering them with love and affection. The model is known for regularly sharing cute updates about them on social media. However, a recent post of her sons derailed after fans pointed out that her older boy was struggling for attention.

On Friday, Sept. 11, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” alum took to her Instagram account to share an adorable video of her sons, 2-year-old Michael Todd Sterling Jr., and 10-month-old Maverick Sterling. The babies looked adorable in their denim outfits as their mommy greeted them with good mornings and asked them how they were doing. Soon afterward, Maverick takes off, making his way around what appeared to be the living room table. As Eva cheered on the baby boy, his brother took notice and began mirroring his every move. Michael could be heard in the clip saying, “Look at my walk,” as he tries to gain Eva’s attention. 

Later in the 1.5-minute clip, Maverick took a soft tumble, and his brother shortly followed suit. Eva jokingly said, “The Academy does not go to,” as Michael fakes his fall. “Them Sterling Boys!!! I cant with Mikey 😂,” the reality star captioned the post, aware that the older son was pining for her attention as well. 

Eva shares both boys with her husband, attorney Michael Sterling. The model has an older daughter, Marley Rae Sterling, whom she shares with singer Kevin McCall, her ex-boyfriend. Eva confirmed on the Jan. 19 episode of “RHOA” that Marley’s last name was officially changed to match the attorney’s last name.

Fans couldn’t help but point out the 2-year-old’s “middle child” behavior, including one person who commented, “Mikey said, look at my walk!!!!🤣🤣🤣 They are adorable.😍.” While another user wrote, “Lol so adorable. Mikey said “you better give me some more attention” 😂.”

Fans continued to swoon over the two boys and complimented Eva on her parenting. One person wrote, “Girl Maverick is growing so fast!! So adorable!! Mikey is hilarious!! Trying to still be the baby!!! I love it!” While another fan commented, “Eva. Omg. From first seeing you win America’s Next Top Model to all of this cuteness overload.” The person added, “Beautiful family. And I must say, your home is outstanding for 2 little ones running around. Games nicely stacked. Toys in their place cuz they’re not scattered everywhere. Fantastic young lady. 🙌❤️🙏🏽.”
