“America’s Next Top Model”/actress Eva Marcille father spoke her name for the first time since suffering a serious stroke last  year.

In Sister 2 Sister magazine, Eva said, “He’s getting better. My father had a stroke a year ago, and he’s an  extremely healthy guy, so the stroke hit us all by storm. It came out of nowhere. He had a massive stroke with full aphasia, and  it impairs your speech and ability to communicate but not your intellect. So  that’s where my dad is now.

“The physical recovery has been amazing. He’s mobile, but his ability to  communicate isn’t there. So just the other day I remember my mother and I just cried so many tears of joy because my father said my name for the first time in almost a year and a half… It’s hard for him to get it (the words) out of his  head. That’s what aphasia is, so that’s what we’ve been battling with.”
