Eva Describing Her Marriage As “Irreparably Broken”
On March 23, the 38-year-old actress in Fulton County, Georgia, submitted the necessary paperwork, describing her marriage as “irreparably broken” with “no chances for a reunion.”
According to Marcille, “One of the most difficult decisions I’ve ever had to make, but also sometimes life leads you in a way you weren’t prepared for. The eight and a half years we have shared are forever loved, and our kids will always come first. At this time, we kindly ask that you maintain our privacy.”
As per the submission, the Atlanta-based lawyer and the TV personality reside in a genuine state of separation.
The Couple Shares Two Children
The couple shares two children – Michael Sterling Jr., who is 4 years old and was born in 2018, and Maverick Sterling, who is 3 years old and was born in 2019.

“I promise to love you unconditionally, unrelentingly, with comfort, and for eternity. Not just the present love, but the love for our future, one that may face unpredictability and hardships but is strong enough to endure the struggles,” expressed Sterling.
“Michael, you are my sanctuary. In a world that can often be disappointing, you give me hope. You embrace the biggest part of me, my daughter Marley, with open arms and hold my truth and fragility with care. I am certain that I was meant for you. Our connection is unbreakable, and our love is genuine,” replied Marcille.
