Eva Marcille’s daughter, Marley Rae Sterling, doesn’t know much about her biological father, Kevin McCall. In fact, the youngster believes that Eva’s husband, Mike Sterling, is her biological dad.
The details of Marley and Mike’s relationship were revealed during last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta (RHOA). Eva became emotional in the days leading up tp Marley’s name change, which became a controversial topic when the news went public last year. Eva has referred to Kevin McCall as her child’s donor on several occasions. The RHOA star spoke about her daughter’s estranged relationship with her biological father during Sunday’s episode.
“Marley was just about two months when I left her biological father, and he is completely uninvolved in her life, by choice in certain areas and by force in others,” Eva revealed to the RHOA production staff. Marcille told her husband that she felt like Marley was their first child together, regardless of what her daughter’s birth certificate read, and he agreed.
Eva feared that Kevin would contest their daughter’s name change in court, which gave her immense anxiety about the situation. Thankfully, Kevin did not appear in person but rather expressed his disdain for Eva’s decision on his social media page.
Still, even with the turmoil surrounding Eva and Kevin’s relationship, Mike Sterling has an incredible bond with Marley. In fact, the celebrity father wrote Eva’s daughter a beautiful letter last year.
“I just do the best I can every day hoping to provide the very best for you and working hard so that you have what you deserve – unconditional love, unbridled joy, endless possibilities, the capacity to explore your ambition, and the ability to chase your dreams,” Sterling wrote online.
More than 200,000 social media fans applauded Mike’s message. Blended families are beautiful, aren’t they?
