Eve and her handsome husband will be celebrating their one year wedding anniversary on June 14th. Marriage has definitely been a joy for the rapper since tying the knot to the British fashion designer. On the Meredith Vieira show, rapper Eve shares just how husband Maximillion has changed her life in ways that are unimaginable.
In the interview with Meredith Vieira last year, Eve says —
“Being married has changed me in a lot of different ways. It’s funny because I’m a really fiercely independent person and I always have been. Being married, you have to relinquish some of that. Not in a bad way but in the way that you need to sit back and trust your partner to be able help you with things. Sometimes my husband has to say to me, ‘Chill. You’re my wife now. I can take the ball from here. Don’t even stress.’
The “Gangsta Lovin” rapper has definitely changed her taste in men. She has even expressed her views and experiences being in a former relationship with Bad Boy producer , Love and Hip Hop Atlanta co star, Stevie Jordan. At an event called “Intimate Hour” , the rapper shares with young girls at a Philadelphia high school, her love story and past with Stevie J, letting them know it was all a learning experience. She also sets the record straight that there is no way her first love would ever be able to see the woman she is now.
“You meet people all the time. We just happened to fall in love. Umm, but thankfully I knew better, I know better, I am happily in love now. And the girl now, he couldn’t even see this. I would be like, ‘I’m sorry, we don’t speak the same language!’ But you know it is what it is,”, says Eve.
Eve also gave the young teens some words of wisdom on never ignoring their gut feeling and encouraging them to embrace their voices to speak up.
She says , “When I was younger I didn’t question things but now I am annoying! Like if something doesn’t feel right speak up! If you feel like you are being lied to, speak up! If you feel like sexually he is trying to push you too fast, speak up. And let me tell you something, anybody that knows you’re worth it will stick around.”
These days the rapper is on a whole new planet. Planet True Love! Yes, she feels different and loves differently.
After the wedding ceremony last year Eve gave a statement to US Magazine saying,
“We are beyond happy to celebrate our marriage with all of our friends and family and start our journey in our new life together. It’s been such an amazing experience and we are happier than we ever thought we could be. Thanks for the well wishes.”
Eve also enjoys mom duties to Maximillion’s four children. The two have talked about having children of their own as well.
So to have and to hold — to cherish and love without any reservation. Couples that are in loving relationships prosper by building each other up for the better, enhancing their flaws by making them beautiful perfections.
