·2 min read

Eve is feeling the love as she prepares to welcome her first child.

On Monday, the 43-year-old pregnant rapper gave her followers a glimpse at the baby shower her loved ones threw for her back in October.

For the special occasion, the musician was joined by her friends and family including husband Maximillion Cooper, mother Julia Wilch-Jeffers, and her Queens co-stars Naturi Naughton and Nadine Velazquez.

In the photos posted to Instagram, Eve smiles and cradles her baby bump as she wears a silk burgundy dress.

Eve married the British entrepreneur in June 2014 after four years of dating, and she is a stepmom to Cooper's four teenage children — Lotus, 19, Jagger, 17, Cash, 15, and Mini, 13 — from his previous marriage.

Last December, she told PEOPLE about adjusting to being a stepmom and why she felt "lucky" to have had that instant family.

"It's been now 10 and a half years I've been in their lives and they've been in my life. They've grounded me. In the beginning, when I first met my husband, then-boyfriend, I was like, 'This is never gonna last because you got four kids! How's this gonna work?' " recalled Eve. "But then I met the kids and honestly was like 'Wow, kids are amazing.' "

"I will say it took years, though, I'm not gonna lie," added the former co-host of The Talk. "It did take two or three years to adjust, just our relationship with the kids. But I have to say I'm very lucky. I feel very, very lucky that I had my insta-kids — I call them my bonus children!"
