Eve and husband Maximillion Cooper welcome baby boy
On Thursday, Eve, real name Eve Jihan Cooper, shared the first image of her and her husband Maximillion’s son on Instagram.
“Our Beautiful boy was born Feb 1st 2022 ? Wilde Wolf Fife Alexander Somers Cooper ? Words can’t describe this feeling,” the 43-year-old rapper wrote in her caption.
So far, over 270,000 Likes and 19,000 comments have arrived, offering congratulations and well wishes to Eve and Maximillion for their first son.
The couple revealed Eve was expecting last October when Eve showed her baby bump on Instagram for the first time. The rapper has previously opened up about the infertility issues she was having with her husband.
“Obviously, I’ve talked about my struggle with getting pregnant, and I didn’t talk about it for a long time because I felt shameful,” she told Essence in 2019.
“As a woman, you just think things happen naturally, and I felt like I was damaged. I felt like I was broken. I felt like, oh maybe I wasn’t good enough… it’s a very sad hurtful thing, but the more I held onto it, the worse I actually felt about it about myself,” Eve said.
On Thursday, Eve’s husband also shared the news about their new bundle of joy, saying, “Let the wild rumpus begin!” in his Instagram caption.
