It's no secret that multi-millionaire Maximillion Cooper is head over heels in love with Eve—his wife of six years. The proud husband recently took to his Instagram page to post a picture of his beautiful wife.

The photo featured the talented Eve, dressed fashionably in a sleeveless red gown with a revealing neckline that showed off some skin. The 41-year-old rapper had her hair styled in gorgeous curly strands that reached her neck.

For accessories, she had on a beautiful silver neckpiece to go with her stylish knuckle rings. Cooper's caption expressed his pride in her achievement. The proud husband wrote while adding a red heart emoji,

"Wifey hosted the #essence #blackwomeninhollywood event yesterday... #proudhusband."

The post comes just a few days after ESSENCE held its 13th yearly "Black Women in Hollywood Awards luncheon."

The event was star-studded as it attracted some of the most successful women like Janelle Monae, Gabrielle Union, Issa Rae, and several others.

Cooper and Eve met in 2010 at a Gumball 300 rally, a charity car rally he founded. The couple dated each other long-distance for three years before Eve moved to London to marry him.

This year the luncheon took place on Thursday, February 6, at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel located in Los Angeles, and Cooper's wife, Eve hosted it.

During the event, there were several motivational speeches from the various women in attendance. Of note is Janet Mock's speech, which was about queer and trans rights. Mock stated,

"Too often Black trans women and Black queer and gender-nonconforming folks put their bodies on the line every day by being themselves."

She then went on to state that the struggle for black people's welfare has to involve black LGBTQIA people as well. She prided them as strong people who have the will to stand every day being true to themselves.

Other women also stepped up to deliver similarly encouraging speeches that stressed unity and co-existence. Speaking about her role as the host, Eve expressed her happiness. She said,

"I'm honored to host the Essence Black Women in Hollywood Awards this year, Essence is such an incredible brand that I've looked up to over the years, so I'm over the moon to be a part of this event!"
