The Real Housewives of Atlanta is only a few episodes into season 12, but Eva Marcille is already gearing up for the reunion. The former America’s Next Top Model winner, who welcomed son Maverick a little over a month ago, says she’s hoping to get back into shape by the time she and her fellow cast members reunite to talk about the season.
“I think in the end it was like 40 something [pounds],” Eva told HollywoodLife at BravoCon 2019 of the weight she gained during pregnancy. “First day of BravoCon started my five weeks and it takes six weeks before you even go back to the doctor or workout or do anything. So I go see [Married To Medicine’s] Dr. Jackie [Walters], my doctor. Hopefully she clears me to workout.”
While she’s eager to get back to a normal exercise routine, Eva says she’s not stressing about shedding the weight and is proud of how hard her body has been working throughout her pregnancy. “I mean, hey, it was a whole baby,” she joked. We couldn’t agree more!
Though Eva’s clearly taking a healthy approach to getting back into shape after baby, she does have one goal in mind: to feel and look as good as she can at The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion.
“I think I’ll like really start concentrating on it like before my reunion,” Eva said of starting her fitness regimen again. “So that I can slay with like a proper side-eye and snatchedness, yes.”
From her appearance at BravoCon, it’s clear Eva is already slaying — but here’s to yet another fierce look at the reunion!
