Rapper Eve calls her husband’s daughter, Lotus Cooper, “bonus daughter” in birthday celebratory posts.
As she and her husband, Maximillion Cooper, celebrate his teenage daughter turning 18, the TV host shared a series of photos of the birthday celebrant on her Instagram.
One of the pictures featured Eve and Max’s eldest daughter locked in an embrace as they held up the peace sign.
Describing herself as a “super chill” stepmom, Eve admitted to deliberately trying to understand her children’s feelings.
Her fans quickly took to the comment section to wish the young lady a happy birthday, and some were more thrilled by the rapper’s alias for her in the caption, “bonus daughter.” On his part, proud dad, Cooper uploaded a series of throwback photos of his “Lil’ cheeky monkey.”
The snaps showed how much Lotus has grown over the years. In his caption, the Gumball 3000 CEO mentioned that he couldn’t believe how much she has grown and, after that, expressed how proud he was.
In 2014, when the couple got married, the “Barbershop” actress automatically became a parent to her husband’s four children from his first marriage.
Closer Weekly reports that she once stated to E! News that being a stepmother has been one of her most cherished experiences. She also described her husband’s kids as cool and sweet.
While things might seem rosy at the moment, the Philadelphia native admitted that her relationship with the kids didn’t kick off immediately. According to US Weekly, the 41-year-old also credits her maternal successes to having a stepparent herself.
The outlet reports that in an exclusive chat, she shared that she was still a child when her mother remarried, and she wondered a lot about why her feelings were not considered before the marriage.
Describing herself as a “super chill” stepmom, she admitted to deliberately trying to understand her children’s feelings.
While she may have her hands full with her four broods, the “The Talk” co-host also plans to have kids of her own. Last year, USA Today shared that she opened up on an episode of “The Talk” about her pregnancy struggles and the insecurity that came with it.
Months after her emotional revelation, Hello Beautiful reported speculations of her possibly being pregnant after she appeared at the London Fashion Week in a white loose fit Maison Valentino dress.
