They tied the knot in November 2019, and two days later welcomed a French bulldog named Walter into the family – and he even has his own Instagram account!

Almost two years later, in September 2021, Eva gave birth to the couple's first child, a daughter named Ella. Announcing the news on Instagram, Eva shared an adorable snap showing the host cradling her newborn baby. The caption read: "Welcome to the world little Ella. She already seems to know what she wants… and she isn't shy about voicing her opinion. Seriously obsessed with this little girl."

A few months later, Eva gave an update on how she and Ed had been finding parenthood. Sharing a sweet photo showing the new parents and their dog looking adoringly at Ella, she wrote in the caption: "Been really making an effort recently to be present and enjoy the now. Thank you to everyone who has sent us messages. Yes… @walterunleashed loves baby girl. And yes baby girl is everything and more than we imagined… especially the more pee and poop part. Life truly is precious."

Eva Pilgrim's idyllic home life

Eva often posts adorable snaps to her social media pages, showing glimpses inside her home life with her family. 

Just last month, she shared a hilariously relatable post showing her daughter Ella sporting a pair of funky polka dot sunglasses while her mom wrapped her arms around her. She wrote in the caption: "Mommy is wearing her glasses this morning… so Ella wanted to wear her glasses too. Shortly after this she destroyed everything in our living room… #toddlerlife."

In December last year, Eva shared a touching tribute to her husband in celebration of his birthday. Posting a carousel of photos of the couple and their family, she penned in the caption: "Happiest birthday to my rock in this crazy world… my wonderful husband!!! So so grateful for this man… all that he is for me, our little girl and Walter too.
