‘Basketball Wives’ Star Evelyn Lozada Engaged To L.A. Dodgers’ Carl Crawford
Guess who’s taking their talents to Los Angeles? Evelyn Lozada’s recent engagement announcement has gossip mags musing if the reality TV veteran will move on to Real Baseball Wives of Los Angeles soon.
The 38-year-old reality star announced her upcoming nuptials to Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford, yesterday, on Christmas Day.
It seems like the most talked about celebreality personality is switching sports allegiances, again, and getting married to boot. Lozada, who is seven months pregnant with Crawford’s child, is battling allegations that her soon-to-be hubby is a bit of a philanderer. Quickly coming off a Las Vegas-esque marriage to former NFL star Chad (Ochocinco) Johnson, the pair was originally planning their own VH1 series titled, Ev & Chad, but only a month into their marriage Johnson assaulted his new bridge — reportedly over a receipt for condoms she found in the back of his car.
After filing for divorce shortly after the August 2012 incident, TMZ reports that Lozada had been dating her new All-Star beau in secret for nearly a year.
Lozada’s past relationships with sports involved a 10-year-relationship with now-retired NBA forward Antoine Walker, the aforementioned Ochocinco (NFL), and she also has a daughter, 20-year-old Shaneice Lozada, from a previous relationship.
The Brooklyn, New York City born reality TV character broke the news on her Instagram account, posting a picture of a ginormous 14.5 carat diamond engagement ring on her finger with the caption, “Yes!” You can see the glacier-sized rock for yourself below:
Crawford pulled out all of the stops to propose marriage to Lozada: designed by Jason of Beverly Hills, the ring is valued at $1.4 million. If you think that the young MLB all-star cannot afford it, the 32-year-old is currently rounding the third year of a seven-year $142 million dollar contract he originally signed with the Boston Red Sox.
