Marcille, 33, revealed her pregnancy news exclusively to PEOPLE in November, sharing a series of sweet images featuring Marcille, Sterling and her daughter — her only child with ex Kevin McCall — having a tea party.
“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 new mom recalled at the time of the sweet conversation between herself and her little girl.
“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,” the America’s Next Top Model Cycle 3 winner added with a laugh.
Marcille — who got engaged to Sterling, a lawyer, over the Christmas holidays — told PEOPLE in November that they had already chosen their son’s moniker, after his dad.
“Also known as Mikey — that’s what Marley calls him,” said the model and actress. “We have a junior, which is kind of terrifying to me because Michael is the most ambitious person I’ve ever met.”
“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,” she added.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
