Eva Marcille is loving life and every aspect of parenthood. The celebrity mom tells Rolling Out about her ability to juggle responsibilities at home with her career ambitions.
“I have a great mother myself and if it wasn’t for my mom and my support system — my friends that helped me out — I don’t know what I would do, honestly,” she says of being a working mom. “It’s a balancing act,” she adds. “They say ‘it takes a village to raise a child.’ I have definitely cultivated my village to raise my child.”
Fans will soon get to see Eva’s “village” when the star’s reality show debuts in coming months. “It was difficult, I can say,” the star shares of the show’s creation. “It was a labor of love and I don’t regret any of it, but it wasn’t the easiest job to do, because it wasn’t just a job. You have real people that you have relationships with and mixing business and friendships you have to proceed with caution. It wasn’t perfect, it definitely tried our friendships, but at the end of it we’re all still intact. In the show you see how business can go wrong and how each person deals with each situation.”
Eva Marcille has one child, Marley Rae, with ex-boyfriend Kevin McCall. The star mom celebrated her daughter’s second birthday in February.
