122308: "America’s Next Top Model" Winner Eva Marcille Engaged to Actor Lance Gross

Nothing Like the Holidays Los Angeles Premiere

As the cycle 3 winner of America’s Next Top Model, Eva Marcille (previously known as Eva Pigford) may have ruled the runway in any number of couture creations, but now the search is on for the dress she will don for her walk down the aisle. Confiding to Essence magazine online, the beautiful bride-to-be announced her betrothal to her beau since 2007, actor Lance Gross of Tyler Perry’s House of Payne.

Enjoying a cozy cabin at the Big Bear ski resort at Big Bear Lake, California with their families, the model/actress (who currently stars in the daytime drama The Young & The Restless) was presented with a 3.36-carat diamond 1895 Pave Cartier ring– a Christmas Eve gift symbolizing a promise of a lifetime of love.

Wanting to savor their engaged status, the happy couple are contemplating a summer 2010 wedding ceremony.
