In 2019, Eve spoke about her struggles with infertility while co-hosting The Talk and said that it left her feeling "broken" and that she didn't speak about it publicly as she felt "shameful". She said, "As a woman, you just think things happen naturally and I felt like I was damaged. I felt like I was broken. I felt like, oh well maybe I’m not good enough. It’s a very sad hurtful thing, but the more I hung onto it the worse I actually felt about myself." Speaking about her decision to leave The Talk last year, Eve said the intense production schedule on the daytime show had her traveling from the UK to California every two weeks. 

Eve revealed that the hectic schedule had been getting in the way of her and her husband’s plans to grow their family. The couple are living together with Maximillion’s four teenage children from a previous relationship, with the award-winning singer stating that the pandemic gave them an opportunity to focus once again on their family and marriage. She said, "My husband and I got to spend a ton of time together that we never did before because we were travelling so much and it was important for both of us to not be apart like we were." Eve added, "When I was doing the show and things were normal, I was flying back and forth every two weeks and he was doing the same. But even then we might spend five or seven days together and then not see each other in three weeks – that’s not a great relationship. You can’t stay married like that. We’re working on our family and I don’t want to lose any more time with him, with our family."
