Eva Marcille Says It Was 'Necessary' To Give Her Daughter Her New Husband's Last Name, Kevin McCall Reacts

​ ​ ​ ​

Here we go again. Another day, another beef between "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Eva Marcille and her estranged daughter's dad/singer Kevin McCall. More inside...

"Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Eva Marcille just made a huge decision involving her daughter.

During her “Eva’s Corner” segment on the Rickey Smiley Morning Show, Eva explained why she decided to legally change her daughter’s last name from McCall to Sterling.

“The good Lord saw fit for me to meet an amazing man, Michael Sterling who has become my husband and the father to my later children, so long story short we all have the name Sterling and Marley is the only one with her biological father’s name. I saw it necessary and Mike saw it necessary to change her name,” she revealed.

Eva and and her ex-boyfriend Kevin McCall welcomed daughter Marley Rae McCall to the world in 2014. Shortly after the couple split and have publicly been at each other’s necks ever since.

@miketsterling you are hands down the definition of an amazing father. From your dedication to our children, to your consistency and dependability which is unwavering. From staying up late to comfort our youngest Mikey to your early mornings getting them to school every morning. To Saturday tennis with Marley to watching the game with Mikey.... to spending priceless quality time creating an unbreakable bond. What you do for our children and our family it’s quite beautiful. I thank you for loving, providing, protecting and always prioritizing us. I love you to the moon and back and I wish you the happiest Fathers Day yet! #BestDadEver #irreplaceable #steppedupandsignedup #TheSterlings I couldn’t do it without you

The singer-songwriter has been accused of domestic violence on multiple occasions and Eva ultimately filed a restraining order against Kevin in 2014. In 2018, the "ANTM" star married Michael Sterling after giving birth to their first child together, Michael Todd Jr., that spring.

During the radio segment, Eva mentioned that the name change is an effort to make sure that Marley Rae doesn’t feel left out in her own home.

“I never really wanted my daughter to feel like odd man out. She started our family and since she is the head as far as the kids are concerned, I felt it necessary that she takes the same name that we have,” she said.

As pure as Eva’s intentions are, everyone did not agree with her decision. After the interview dropped, some fans went to the Internet to voice their disagreement.

Kevin, never one to not express his feelings, responded to a few tweets.

“This is all for her reality show don’t believe this crap,” he responded to a fan.


He also posted a YouTube video claiming Eva is playing the victim and changed her daughter’s name simply out of spite.





It doesn’t look like Eva and Kevin will be reconciling anytime soon.



In the meantime, Eva and Michael are expecting their second child together this year.
