In October 2011, Eva got married to former Major League Soccer player and current NBC Sports broadcaster Kyle Martino.

They share two children — daughter Marlowe and son Major. On her Instagram page, she often posts photos with her kids.

"Marlowe and I realized tonight that Major thinks Mummies are called 'Freaky Mamas' and we both just about died," Eva captioned one of her posts.

She added, "I don't know what I love more- that my five year old is in on a joke with me, or that she thinks that the little kid-isms that Major comes up with at 2 are as adorable and perfect as I do. I swear sometimes I really think she is this kid's other Mommy, Or should I say, 'freaky mama'?"

In a 2019 interview with Closer Weekly, Eva opened up about her famous mother, Susan, revealing how she inspired her to be a great mother for Marlowe and Major. She said:

"I think just being a working mom and showing me that you can be everything you want to be unapologetically and being an example for that, so I could see that as I kind of formulated my own method in parenting which was really helpful."

"As a kid, we've gone to dinner and listened to what everyone else is saying," she said. "There were really, really bad dates or like breakups that we would witness. There was never a dull moment in a New York City restaurant."

Eva is currently expecting her third offspring with her husband, Kyle, as reported by PEOPLE.

The actress made the announcement by posting a video on her blog, Happily Eva After.
