America's Top Model winner Eva Pigford Marcille says her first pregnancy is like "Whoa."
"To see your stomach get bigger, to feel this leg kick inside of you, and then to see the baby, it's like, 'Whoa! There's really a baby in there!'" the sometime model and reality TV star told PEOPLE.com.
But Marcille says there's also a downside to experiencing her first pregnancy.
Marcille, 28, told PEOPLE she's still waiting for the pregnancy 'glow' that she's heard so much about.
"It's bullish*t," she said. "There is no glow! Your skin changes. It gets horrible. … My hair is already oily, so I don't need it to get any oilier, but it is. And I don't need it to grow faster. I like my hair short."
Marcille and her boyfriend, songwriter Kevin McCall are expecting their first child together.
"She makes up things to hate, because I think she looks great," observes McCall, whom Marcille says is experiencing a sympathy pregnancy of his own.
"You know how they say that when the woman gets pregnant, the guy gets pregnant too?" Marcille asks. "He has all of the symptoms! He sleeps all day – granted, he'll work all night – but he's exhausted during the day, and he eats my pickles and some of the weirdest things ever.
"He's definitely pregnant, but he's not getting fat! That's the only problem," she laughed.
