Eva Marcille

Eva Marcille introdiuced her infant son, Michael Todd Sterling, Jr., to her 2.1 million followers on Instagram.com on Tuesday. But it was the image of her 4-year-old daughter, Marley, that sparked a heated debate.

Eva, 33, captioned the image: "Our little tribe... thanks @joecarlosphotography this is Mikey’s online debut".

But some of Eva's followers criticized her for allowing her daughter to sit on the lap of her fiancé, Michael Sterling, who made a failed bid for mayor of Atlanta.

One IG user wrote: "Her daughter sitting in stepfather's lap is a no," while another user wrote: "Here comes her ex in 3.. 2.. 1..," referring to Marley's hostile biological dad, singer Kevin McCall.

Eva has clearly moved on....and onto better pastures.....folks always want to throw shade on somebody else happiness...smdh.....I bet that man treats Eva's daughter like gold.....and now folks trying to fuck that up...smdh.....

  • Yardgirl

    Some people turn everything into an issue, it's a family photo!! We live in some fcked up times!!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Chile .. say it !

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Apparently step daddy is doing more for the child than real daddy, sooo...

    I grew up the same way! My dad is my step dad because my bio dad was a deadbeat ?????

  • Enoughsaid2020

    Some people have too much time on their hands, and always looking for something to be defended about. Congratulations Eva on your beautiful family!

  • Prettybrowneound35

    Folks would much rather this man treat her child like an outsider than like one of his own.

    This world is screwed all the way up.

  • xenaD

    That child looks just like her daddy

  • xenaD

    Yes, men are pigs lol ... get on my damn nerves ??

  • thrift.store.jungle

    i remember when she was eva pigford.

  • Prettybrowneound35

    She’s not left alone...she’s sitting on his lap in a family photo with her mother present and both of his hands in view.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    That little girl looks just like her dad Kevin McCall. As far as the photo goes, it's a family photo and they usually mix the girls, dads, boys, moms, etc. to show balance in the pic.

  • Trace da Ace

    i have always wondered why the Marcell...came from.....I memba that too!

  • Miss Thang

    He seems to love the child and they are a family now, so what's the problem?

    the lil girl look like her deddy :)

  • FukkFolks2018

    I dont like when OLDER girls sit on the laps of grown men. I was raised that way. I was around 11-12 my grandmother told me I was too big to climb in the laps of my dad and my uncles anymore, and I was heartbroken. I was very small for my age and I couldnt for the life of me figure out why it was no longer okay. This baby is 4. I see nothing wrong with it

  • none yubiz

    Abuse by proxy is when you have others further abuse the victim by manipulation of facts i.e. stating one is crazy, a bad parent, etc.

    K.M. is a sociopath and a perfect example of an abusive man that will use abuse by proxy to further torment his victims. He can no longer directly abuse her emotionally/physically so he puts out these little rants to incite people to facilitate the abuse as he sits back and enjoys every minute of it. This man supposedly said he wanted nothing to do with the child, if he was really about something he would be in court filing for his visitation rights.

  • Anunnaki

    Serious question, do these 16-21 yr olds that sets off IG, AND OR TWITTA., i just cant believe grown as people invest this much time in celebrity lives, i really cant

  • http://www.NeCola.Mayvenn.com Chile_Pleeze

    i guess people so used to seeing Kevin and Enema leaving the children off to the side as afterthoughts and photoshopped into the picture ...I see nothing wrong with Eva's family pic.. I see him embracing his stepdaughter..

  • none yubiz

    Auntie deleted the comment...stand by your beliefs chile!

  • Carrington

    Same salty broads who have their kids calling their man of the quarter "deddy" made that a woman and her family take a family photo. This is why the black community is so f*cked up... even NORMALCY is criticized and turned into something negative. Everybody knows how the family structure SHOULD be, but the majority of the ones with beef created their family out of "normal" order.
    Give it a REST. I can't stand us sometimes. Why can't images of happiness be just that and we move around?

  • Yui

    People have so much time on their hands.

  • http://www.NeCola.Mayvenn.com Chile_Pleeze

    too MUCH..

  • Phillybruh

    We get in our own way sometimes. Reminds me of the broads capping for Futures dumb ass.

  • disqus_DxKO3ThTGI

    And folks look at me like I got 2 heads when I say the only social media account I have is Facebook. I got toooooooooooooo much shit on my To Do List, that I simply have no time to evaluate someone else's life.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Beautiful family

  • Anunnaki

    Right, i don't get it for the life of me,

  • none yubiz

    There's alot of nerve going around especially when the folks saying it's strange will take their kids to the mall to sit on the lap of a strange white man in a costume for a holiday pic...tuhh

  • KLo

    People should mind their business. I see nothing wrong with this.

  • Nita

    People need to stfu sometimes and mind their business

  • KcoolMuziq

    I remember when I attended The Emmy Awards when Eva was dating actor Lance Gross. I couldn't keep my eyes off of them.They made a stunning looking couple. I wondered what happened. But not long after she started dating a famous, triple threat, entertainer they had the gossip blogs in a uproar. I wish that "person" was back on the scene. I miss that "person".

  • RICHIE_RICH

    As I always say, mind ya business and live ya best life!!!

  • TheOwley

    Beautiful family. Haters gonna hate.

  • WhoKnew

    Nice looking family. Little man is a mini me of his dad.

    Onto Eva's "ain't shyt" ex. Why do people have an issue with a child having a healthy, safe, nurturing and loving relationship with their mother's significant other when the mother moves on from an "ain't shyt ninja"? By all accounts, Eva's fiance gives a damn about the direction his life is headed and seems to be a decent person with whom her daughter can build a healthy, normal and loving relationship with. People are damned if they do and damned sho nuff if they don't. Pick a lane and stay in it.

  • deadellamore

    OMG, ppl need to get a serious life! Let Eva and her family live!

  • stacee

    HARMLESS!!!!!!

  • freelancepimp .

    Wasn't Eva lesbian back in the day?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    If you want people to 'mind their own business' you should keep family and personal photos private.

    Otherwise all bets are off.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Then don't put your bizness on social media hence the trolls.

  • Kanyade

    Beautiful family

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Yes, she was bisexual back in the day. Same as MC Lyte, Tichina Arnold, Jada Pinkett, and too many others to mention.

  • MJF

    lol

  • Logan Roberts

    Nice looking family. Eva has always been gorgeous. I have no problem with this pic, my stepdad helped raise me & he's the only dad I ever acknowledged. My family used to take pics like this ?

  • cpatterson_22

    people don't realize that if you're the one sexualizing the picture than you're the pervert

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Ohh LAAWWWD.... GUTTER FOLK THINK GUTTER THINGS ALLLLLL THE TIME!

  • Guest

    Beautiful family. Miley looks like her dad.

  • Dowoop

    I was waiting to see what the issue was because I never would have been able to figure it out.

  • Ni Ni

    I was about maybe 7 when i was sitting on a male relative's lap. I kept asking what he had in his pocket and he laughed it off & switched me to the other side. I started poking it and kept asking what was in his pocket. Now that I'm grown, i know it was a ??. Anywhoo, our elders were very wise back then. They told us things for our own good. If only more people listened.

  • Guest

    Entirely too much.

  • Renee26

    Beautiful family

  • NuBeauty

    people got too much time on their hands for them ridiculous comments.....so over low minded people

  • Dowoop

    I was gonna laugh but I thought about it and no...he wrong. He should have put your ass down and you shouldn't have been feeling anything on him...I wouldn't let him anywhere near kids.

  • Bashi22

    Lol MC Lyte gives me that energy still one thing for sure Queen Latifa is certified lesbian.

  • Jennifer

    Exactly! It's a blessing she's been able to move on, find happiness, and continue to grow her family with a brotha more than willing to step up! That babygirl seems to be in great hands! More power to all the sistas, like Jenae from Sweetie Pies, who have moved on from losers uninterested in being a family, to find true happiness!

  • Ni Ni

    I think i just caught him off guard. He eventually put me down and i ran my little curious butt off to play. Thanfully, he wasn't a pedo.

  • Alextra Ballard

    People just love to complain and always looking for negativeties. Well ain nutn to see here. There is nothing inappropriate about this photograph. Some people minds are really twisted

  • imright

    ppl are annoying ?aint nthn wrong with this photo !!! they all look beautiful ????

  • grenadiadrian

    These are the same people who spend their entire day going through people's tweets from 7 or 8 years ago. Man go outside and play.

  • dblogged

    I agree. No child, especially a daughter, should be sitting in another man’s lap, if it ain’t her Pops, grandpa, or brother. That’s foolish. Look at where her hand is. He should’ve been holding that boy

  • imright

    ya kno !!! ?? i always wondered HOW they dig that far back ?? is it a special search button or do they manually go alllllll the way back 7-10 years ??? ????

  • imright

    i mean its a family photo, fully clothed? its not like theyre in the bathtub

  • Passion

    People is always trying to run someone else’s life, they need to focus on who’s lap their kids are sitting on! Be careful who you let keep your kids, like your boyfriends!

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Lovely photo

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Eva has said on numerous occasions that Michael is basically Marley's dad. Kev has done nothing but whine on IG and threaten to physically harm Eva, her man and his own child smh. He does not contribute and this man is willing to step up and be a father to her....Some of you will never see the horizon cause yall too busy picking at dirt smh...

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I agree...I know someone who has three kids and got married to a man with no kids a few years ago...he has yet to lift a finger for any of her children...he said he married her and not her kids....Chile...all Im saying is shoutout to the real men who step up when others dont because it could be worse...

  • FukkFolks2018

    with my own girls, at about the same age (11-12) I would always call flag on the play about them sitting on the lap of a man. I even said something to bf about his daughter doing it. And it bothers me bc truthfully only reason I do it is bc of what happened to me with my granny being like hell NAW. get down young lady. But I mean to each. Marley is only 4. Every man isnt a pedo. But some ARE. But IDK. You kinda just have to do it to your own accord. Im SO sorry this happened to you. Lord. I am torn on the whole thing. Always have been.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I miss Eva and Lance too they were together for so long you couldn't tell me they were gonna get married smh...

  • Bdot

    That is her stepfather. He is family. Now please STFU

  • Bdot

    You stupid as hell. The man is her soon-to-be stepfather. They're family.

  • hi-liter

    Right! Its these hoes that leave random niggas with they daughters and sons and they just met the nigga 2 weeks ago, and then wonder why he abusing and molesting yo kids while You work and his azz being a stay at home nigga you layin up with.

  • grenadiadrian

    MANUALLY. So you can only imagine how long someone would spend on sifting through a celeb's Twitter with over 10k tweets. Heathens.

  • hi-liter

    If he wasn't a Pedo, why did his Dack get hard? That was what you were feeling.

  • Junkanoo

    Social media has gotten so toxic too many people hurling they're opinions about and often times don't always follow their own advice. Serve these celebrities right always looking for attention makes more sense these days to keep more of your personal life off line .Some folks need to log off line and go for a walk instead of getting so caught up in other people's business.

  • Ni Ni

    I mentioned no such thing.

  • gellie

    In my Katherine Jackson (via Angela Bassett) voice, 'Go to bed, Joseph. GO TO BED!!' That's what these folks really need to do.

  • cleopatra04

    They are a beautiful family. Not every male is a predator who is trying to get at your child. What I see is what appears to be a loving family taking a family photo. If that is the man who a father figure in that child's life then leave them be. Some people really need to stay off the internet and focus on their own lives.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    That guy do look like a moelestor her dad need to do what needs to be done

  • hi-liter

    LOL....I guess I misunderstood your comment. You just felt "something" there, and at that age, you didn't know what it was.

  • Dollmeshia Dee-Dee Clark

    is this really a DEBATE?????????????? This world today can really work my darn nerves

  • Dollmeshia Dee-Dee Clark

    really? the same guy that lives and takes care of said daughter????? that is the most ignorant thing i've ever heard

  • Dollmeshia Dee-Dee Clark

    Thank You!

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    I guess you have never read the news and see where these step dad use a facade look at what woody Allen did

  • Dollmeshia Dee-Dee Clark

    and I guess No FATHER or GRANDFATHER has ever molested their own flesh n blood???? The world today has caused people to loose focus

  • mona q

    The stupidity is nauseating. This man is CARING for this child every day. If anyone reads her Instagram they’d know he gets her ready, takes her to school, pics her up and everything else a father should do. There’s no reason she can’t sit on the lap of a man her mother is about to marry who is in the role of her father. It’s just toxic, dumb and disrespectful to imply this man is anything other than a loving father. By the way, bio-dads can molest kids too so the logic behind these negative comments makes zero sense.

  • mona q

    ??????????

  • Torae

    Sounds like my grandmother. Black people on social media sometimes act like a million old black grannies sitting on their porch just talking just to talk. Like shut up.....

  • Dollmeshia Dee-Dee Clark

    Not denying that but there are also BIOLOGICAL men that have done the same thing! The world today has caused people to go Straight to "SOMETHING'S WRONG".

  • Torae

    Pops, grandpa's and brothers have molested their relatives before. if anything those are the main ones..that makes no sense....

  • JENNYJONES1

    BUT PEOPLE DON'T HAVE AN ISSUE WHEN RUSSELL IS HOLDING OR HAVING LIL FUTURE ON HIS LAP. GET A LIFE AND STOP HAVING A PERVERTED MIND B/C POPS, GRANDPA, UNC AND BROTHER BE THE MAIN ONES THAT MOLEST THESE KIDS..........JENNY JONES!!!!

  • KcoolMuziq
  • Sid

    I think that a lot of people have been through a lot of Fudged up and traumatic situations in their Life. And Because of what happened to them they like to try and dim down everyone else’s sunshine. The fact that they saw something sexual as in a child sitting on her stepfathers lap really says a lot about the person making that statement.

  • cusp_23

    Projecting like a mfer... not you, but the upset commenters. They think their life experiences are law or at least common enough to use as a barometer for the lives of other people.

  • Liah

    People really need to nind there business?

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Something more important like Cheeto and murders out here. Beautiful family photo. Kevin won't like it but that's his issue not mine.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    okay.
    if THE MAN CAN NOT BE TRUSTED TO HAVE his new daughter SIT ON HIS LAP. do NOT MARRY HIM. child GROW UP FEELING DIFFERENT THAN EVERYONE ELSE.

  • cusp_23

    Yeah it was weird. They broke off an engagement and she ended up knocked up by some unemployed lunatic. I mean, at least the crazy baby daddy knocked enough sense into her to know that the 2nd time around needed a ring involved.

  • JENNYJONES1

    MILEY IS A VERY PRETTY LITTLE GIRL & YES SHE FAVORS HER FATHER BUT THE FEATURES LOOK GOOD ON HER. EVA CAN TRY TO ERASE HER PAST(KEVIN) ALL SHE WANTS BUT HER DAUGHTER IS A DAILY REMINDER OF HER LOVE FOR A CRAZY THUG. LOL!!!.........JENNY JONES!!

  • JENNYJONES1

    EVA HAS WEAK GENES B/C BOTH OF HER KIDS LOOK JUST LIKE THEIR FATHERS. THE BABY'S EARS AND LIPS ARE HIS DAD'S AND THE LITTLE GIRL LOOKS JUST LIKE KEVIN W/ EVA'S COMPLEXION. LOL!!!!........JENNY JONES!!!!

  • Tammie Reed

    ____________________this!!

  • Quitedeliteful

    My GAWD!!! If your baby can't sit on the step daddy's lap for a family photo then maybe you shouldn't be with the step daddy! That doesn't mean don't be vigilant. smh....

  • JENNYJONES1

    EVA'S HAIR IS EVERYTHING IN THIS PIC. JUST GORGEOUS!!!!!.........JENNY JONES!!!

  • Nik

    But if their baby was in his lap and not hers, someone would complain he must have a problem with her child.

  • tintin

    I wonder how crazy mccall feels seeing this?

  • Eileen

    they need to just get married and stop being so freaking common. That is prolly why he would never have become mayor. Kasim certainly flew down the aisle when his girlfriend got pregnant...black folks....

  • TooMuchTea

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand what’s the problem??? He is/will be her stepdad.

  • ¡Apryl-Shaw!

    I'm trying to find out what's the problem, besides people's opinions.

  • Life passenger

    Preach????

  • Life passenger

    ??

  • Life passenger

    What exactly does a child molester look like? Are you aware that biological parents also molest their children?

  • Shira Harding-James

    Huh?

  • Lady_Elle

    Sick minds...
    This is a very young girl... Ugh
    Much ado about nothing.

  • Shira Harding-James

    Exactly!!

  • Lady_Elle

    So true! :-)

  • Nik

    LOL! Good analogy.

  • http://bitchbecomesher.com Tasha Nicole

    Ugh, people have such sick minds. always have something to say about everything, I wonder how do these celebrities deal with their social media?

  • CocoBabe88

    Beautiful family!

  • Beverly Johnson

    I had step siblings, I hate to say it but my father treated them horribly, the lesson I learned, have one father for my children made a point to never get pregnant by another man . Sad!!!

  • dblogged

    You’re corny. He shouldn’t be having that man’s child on his lap either. Has nothing to do with being perverted.

  • dblogged

    Now, you’re taking it out of left field...however, I understand where you’re coming from

  • dblogged

    No, don’t understand how you got that. Y’all niggass good on here?

  • dblogged

    No child should ever call another man father/step-father. Especially, while the father is alive and present in their life

  • Dahl

    I thought her biological father essentially denounced her on social media. It doesn’t appear that her brother’s dad is abusing her, so why would Mr. McCall have a problem...?

  • TheThrowbackBeauty

    We seriously need better things to discuss.

  • YellowSauce

    I'm not going to say this man is doing anything but family members DO molest children also ... it usually is the people that are close to them ... I didn't come here to argue but saying because someone is family they wouldn't do it is extremely naive of you ... I have a friend that wouldn't even let her daughter stay with her brothers ... again I'm not saying this man is doing anything but to say he absolutely could not do it is just not on point

  • Juliaquan C Spain

    TheThrowbackBeauty you said it best end of discussion.

  • interestingconcept1

    lol!!!

  • interestingconcept1

    I thought Kevin gave up his parenting rights? If so that's her daddy.

  • Shenanigans1

    This child lives under his roof. That’s his child. My step daughter splits her time between here and her moms. That’s my child. And whoever has a problem with it can fight me.

  • Shenanigans1

    She’s celebrating her upcoming wedding right now...

  • Shenanigans1

    Say it!

  • Jussjess25

    Omg who in the hell cares! Like common she is about to spend her life with that man. Those will be his children as well smh.

  • Jussjess25

    Facts!

  • T3

    I always wonder too. I don't think I would be able to subject myself to it if I were a celebrity. I'd probably not allow any comments. People can be so cruel and have ZERO chill. I'm talking NONE!

  • Shenanigans1

    There is nothing wrong with a step parent that steps up and takes another child in as their own. If he wasn’t doing that people would be calling him all types of names. People just want something to hate on.

  • Shenanigans1

    Supa cent just spilled the tea on that. She said you can go into your acct and filter what can/can’t be said. Commenters can be blocked and not even know they are blocked based on the words they say.

  • Jussjess25

    Exactly

  • Kayke

    This!

  • freelancepimp .

    You know what! That's a win; staying away from fuckboys while hanging with studs until that lame you wouldn't give the time of day finally start making some money from all that schooling and now you can start spitting some bullshit like you are also sapiosexual and really attracted to his mind. Yall females better pay attention to Eva, MC Lyte, Tichina, Jada then others.

  • AmericanGal

    I'm just wondering why she put that belt on that girl and a hairband that doesn't match. Looks....tacky.

  • AmericanGal

    Beautiful? Decent...

  • AmericanGal

    U know blk women have no standards when it comes to babies out of wedlock.

  • AmericanGal

    Marriage should have came before the baby...

  • sunni_daze

    He's been raising that child for a few years now. People need to worry about theirr own kids and not Eva's.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    So out of all that beautiful family, the only thing you noticed is a little girl's belt and headband don't match?!

  • http://bitchbecomesher.com Tasha Nicole

    Yes, comments would be OFF! lol
