Eva Marcille’s Husband Mike Sterling Has an Alter Ego

There couldn't be a more fitting name for the RHOA husband than "Patio Mike."

These days, Eva Marcille and her husband, Michael Sterling, have been very busy taking care of their three little ones and documenting a ton of cute family moments on Instagram. The Real Housewives of Atlanta couple is pretty transparent online, so recently, Michael revealed a brand new side of himself to all of his followers.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Peacock and the Bravo App.

The RHOA husband and dad first debuted his alter ego on social media just as self-quarantine ramped up around the world. Soon enough, Michael found himself taking more and more time for himself out on his patio, giving life to "Patio Mike."

Michael's alter ego seems to emerge anytime he wants to relax or needs a dose of the great outdoors. Patio Mike has simply become part of Michael's at-home experience and his posts always have a positive caption. From the look of Michael's Instagram feed, nothing can stop his alter ego from lounging outside (aside from bad weather, of course). We can all take a note from the RHOA lawyer and his new favorite spot.

The photo below features Patio Mike catching some rays and enjoying a cold drink. He captioned the post, "Happy Sunday my friends. What a great day to be and exist. #sterlingsays #patiomike #dadtime #thesterlings."

But don't get it twisted! Patio Mike enjoys a refreshing night outside as well — sunglasses and all. In the post below, Michael wrote, "It's after dark on a Saturday, so cheers to you for still hanging in there and continuing to survive. Salud. Patio Mike after dark. #sterlingsays #patiomike #patiomikeafterdark #thesterlings."

He's created such an impact, the couple's friends are even in on the joke now!

Michael posted a screenshot of a message from a friend, demanding more Patio Mike. To caption the photo, he wrote, "Lol. I was laughing my a** off this morning when Eva and I received a text from a friend with only one request — Free patio Mike!! Let him live. Lol. #sterlingsays #thesterlings."

One thing's for sure: Patio Mike has become a bit of an Atlanta icon — and we're totally here for it.
