Eve to take a break from new TV series Queens for maternity leave


Eve is taking a break from her busy schedule on her hit new ABC series Queens and is going on maternity leave. 

The move was made by the actress-rapper, who plays one of the leads roles alongside Naturi Naughton, Nadine Velazquez and Brandy Norwood, just over two weeks after revealing she’s pregnant with her first child with husband Maximillion Cooper. 

It turns out Eve lives in the UK with Cooper, so she has to commute back and forth from across the pond to Atlanta, where the show is being filmed for season one.

According to Deadline, ABC and the show’s producers have been supportive of Eve’s tough schedule, and even adjusted the filming of the show in order to get her into a majority of the first 13 episodes before she went on her leave of absence.

Plus, her character’s storyline was left open-ended so that she could return if the series gets renewed for another season. 

Upon delivering her pregnancy news, the Pennsylvania native shared that her due date is in February 2022.
