It’s a boy for Basketball Wives star, Evelyn Lozada and Carl Crawford. The affianced couple announced the arrival of their son, Carl Leo, via Twitter on March 22. “Have EXCITING NEWS! Thank you God for my blessing,” Lozada tweets.
According to US Weekly, the 38-year old mother of one adult daughter, Shaniece Hairston, is very excited about the new addition to her family. She delivered naturally with her family and Carl’s family by her side. The twosome announced their engagement shortly after her divorce from disgraced wide receiver, Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson.
Evelyn’s rep told People Magazine that her son will carry on the family name, Carl, and he will go by his middle name, Leo. The middle name, Leo, came from the father,Carl’s, zodiac sign because she “wanted her son to replicate every aspect” of his famous dad.
In the beginning, not everyone was happy about Evelyn’s relationship with Los Angeles Dodgers player, Carl Crawford. The reality TV beauty was viciously scrutinized and publically bashed for jumping into a relationship so quickly after her divorce. Now that the dust has settled, some are finally warming up to her and Carl’s up-coming nuptials. Fans of Basketball Wives are waiting with bated breathe for the new season to begin filming and hopeful that Evelyn will be among the cast.
Don’t expect any well-wishes for the couple from Carl’s ex, Amy Freeman, anytime soon. Amy and Carl had a contentious relationship that ended in a very public break-up. Carl and Amy co-parent two children both under the ages of 10-years old. At the time Evelyn and Carl announced their engagement and her pregnancy, Amy had recently given birth to her daughter.
Evelyn’s ex, Chad Johnson; however, has been supportive of Evelyn’s new life. It is unclear if his support is sincere considering the two parted ways with such controversy. He boldly told TMZ he is appointing himself as the designated “stylist” for Evelyn and Carl’s son. "No communication with her in over a year and the father doesn't matter; I just need to style and dress the baby.”
Evelyn and Carl have yet to announce a wedding date, but congratulations are in order for this beautiful couple.With all that Evelyn has gone through in the past year, its nice to see her so happy.
Should Evelyn quit reality TV?
