She’s won a Grammy, a Soul Train Award, and is a two-time Emmy nominee, yet Eve has found her greatest reward in being a mother, according to People magazine.

The rapper, talk show host, and actress welcomed son Wilde Wolf with husband Maximillion Cooper on Feb. 1.

“Words can’t describe this feeling,” she wrote just over a week after his birth.

While we’re still a few weeks out from Mother’s Day in America (so you should be shopping now), Eve celebrated her first U.K. Mother’s Day on March 27 with a post some might have missed.

“Never been this tired. Never been this happy ❤️,” Eve posted in an Instagram story on Wednesday, holding her sleeping 11-week-old son in her arms.

Of course, Eve has been practicing for her new role since 2010, having dated Cooper, also the father of four teens from a previous marriage. The two married in 2014.

The 43-year-old and her husband announced their first pregnancy together last November, in which Eve was temporarily written out of the script for her ABC drama Queens while preparing for first-time motherhood.
