Eva Amurri welcomed her third child, Mateo Antoni Martino, via home birth

Eva Amurri and Kyle Martino separated last November. It would have been a big story on its own, considering Eva’s mommy-Instagram-inspo life/career, but the gossip was even bigger than that because Eva was pregnant. Very pregnant – she was about five months along at the time, with their third child, a child Kyle had talked her into having (as she explained on her mommy-blog). They started divorce proceedings immediately and it definitely became clear that he did something unforgivable and she wasn’t having it. A few weeks ago, Eva mommy-blogged about her home birth plan. She wanted to be surrounded by her girlfriends and her two children, and she didn’t want Kyle to be there.

Well… the home birth turned out okay, so that’s the best news. Eva gave birth to a baby boy, Mateo Antoni Martino. She has a thing about M-names. Her older kids are named Marlowe Mae and Major James. Eva posted the Instagram, above, announcing the arrival and as you can see, Kyle was there to see his new kid. My guess is that Eva got the birth/delivery she wanted, without Kyle’s presence, but then Kyle came over shortly after Mateo was born. I do question why Kyle took off his shirt though – my guess is skin-to-skin contact with the baby, sure. But for the photos, he looks like he’s making himself at home in Eva’s bed. Honestly, I can’t imagine how confused Major and Marlowe are right now. They went from witnessing their mother give birth (whew) to daddy coming back home and taking off his shirt and hanging out with mommy in bed. Set aside some money for therapy now.

    Happy she had safe delivery.

    Honestly I don’t understand why the kids would need therapy over minor things like dad not wearing a shirt.

    There are more serious things to worry about.

    • Tammy says:

      Looks like the daughter also has her shirt off? Must have been skin to skin bonding for the whole family with the new baby. I don’t think it’s therapy worthy either.

    • Yup, Me says:


      Also, kids tend to think that whatever is foing on around them is normal until they get around other kids and find out it’s not. These kids may need therapy one day (Eva frequently seems like she could use a check in) but I doubt it will be because Daddy came over and took his shirt off for family snuggles with the new baby. They are still family.

      • Kaitx says:

        I think what Kaiser was getting at is that it must be confusing for the children to have their parents separate and then suddenly their father is back with a new baby and his shirt off in their marital bed.

    • MariaS says:

      I think she means the mixed signals about whether mommy and daddy are together and how that confusion and raising and dashing of hopes could affect them. To kids that age, Daddy being in Mommy’s bed with no shirt on could be misconstrued.

    She is a gross attention seeker, serious narcissist. So weird that she does not understand that there are so many more important issues in the world than her own life/drama. Ugh.

    • Other Renee says:

      She’s annoying, yes, but she’s given birth and wants to share that happy news. Even if she weren’t a blogger, I’m sure she’d still want to share this. No shade. (Shade for having the kids attend the birth though.)

  3. Lucy2 says:

    Eh, those kids are going to need therapy for much bigger issues than that.
    Glad everyone is healthy, hopefully she will just stay private for a while and enjoy the new baby.

  4. It’sjustblanche says:

    I only know her through her mother, which sucks because her mother is such a Bernie or bust that I can’t stand her anymore.

  5. DS9 says:

    This would not have confused kids this little.

    I’m not sure kids of any age would be confused by their dad doing dad things especially with a new baby.

  6. Lululu says:

    I remember after my parents split up constantly looking for clues that they might get back together, which went on until one of them got married again. I don’t know if these kids are old enough to do that, but I’m with you…they’ve gotta be confused by the mixed signals.

    • osito says:

      My parents were never married, but I got the concept of heteronormative, romantic, monogamous partnerships from the culture and other families/friends around us when I was about five, and probably needed therapy to help me untangle how my parents differed from that (much sooner than I sought it anyway). I think Ava’s kids are much younger, and it was the coming and going (my dad…mom was the constant) that messed with my mind in a very real way all the way through to today. If they are already doing things to counteract that sense of rejection, despair, and abandonment that a child feels when a parent is absent, then I have no qualm with them about their separation. If they aren’t thinking about it, they need to get on it starting *now*.

  7. frenchtoast says:

    Isn’t she the blogger who said she wanted her kids to stay in the room when she gives birth? That would be traumatizing, it would be better to wait after they at least reach puberty imo, then they at least understand what’s happening.
    I don’t see the big deal with him being shirtless in front of he kids. If he didn’t have pants on, then that would be a problem though…

  8. SK2 says:

    Nice name but I would prefer to see the Italian spelling ( two Ts) as it would match the Italian surname ( I’m fussy like that). No comment on the middle name

  9. serena says:

    Wonder if she Antoni is from somewhere or she just left the -o or -y on purpose.

  10. Summer says:

    I’m all for togetherness and something really bad must have happened for the marriage to end so suddenly like it did, when it did. But I agree with Kaiser, children that age do not comprehend things like we adults do. The parents need to start slowly backing away and explaining it to the children as they back away. I’m a child of divorce, it’s very tricky, I know.

  11. Lisa says:

    She’s insufferable. I’m happy baby is healthy. So sad that baby is born to a narcissistic mom who will document every burp and fart that the child has. Even her husband strayed and got another woman pregnant at the same time as she was pregnant. She should put that in her blog it would be more interesting than her boring content.

  12. Sophie says:

    I don’t actually care about this profoundly self-centered person, but the petty gossip in me is dying to know what went down in her marriage!

  13. alexc says:

    Not to nitpick but Matteo is spelled with double tt in Italian since they seemed to be going full Italian on the name.
