Eva Robin's, born Roberto Maurizio Coatti (10 December 1958) is a transgender Italian actress, model, and activist from Bologna, Italy.

Eva was born male. but developed naturally feminine features. From the age of about thirteen she says she felt she wanted to be a female. When she was sixteen, she met a neighbor who was transgender and introduced her to female hormones. By the age of twenty-one she was living completely as a woman. Eva says she doesn't want sex reassignment surgery, saying she feels comfortable with her body and has no desire to change.[2][3][4]

Contrary to conflicting mentions, Eva currently does spell her last name with an apostrophe in it. She took her nom de plume from a character in Italy's Diabolik comics, Eva Kant, and writer Harold Robbins. While on holiday in Sardinia she saw the name "Robbins" spelled as "Robin's" and decided to take on that particular spelling.[5][6]
