Eve is going on a little break.

On Thursday, Nov. 4, Deadline reported that the star of ABC's Queens will begin maternity leave before the show finishing filming this year. Per the publication, the rapper-turned-actress is expecting her first child in February 2022.

The hit maker, who plays the character Brianna on the show, announced her pregnancy on social media on Oct. 15. She wrote on Instagram at the time, "Can you believe it @mrgumball3000 we finally get to tell everyone!!!!! You all know how long we've been waiting for this blessing. We get to meet our lil human February 2022."

The "Let Me Blow Ya Mind" singer is married to producer and director Maximillion Cooper. This joyous news will be a very sweet Valentine for them in the new year. The new baby will join older siblings from Eve's husband's prior relationship—Lotus, 19, Jagger, 17, Cash, 15, and Mini, 13.
