Evelyn Lozada of “Basketball Wives” is engaged to the Dodgers’ Carl Crawford. The baseball star popped the question on Christmas Day. The pregnant starlet made the announcement with an Instagram photo, simply captioning a picture of the enormous engagement ring on her finger with “YES!”
“I’m overjoyed and in complete and utter shock!” the 38-year-old told People. “What a different year and a half it has been — I’m truly happy!
A rep from her camp reported that Lozada “wasn’t expecting a proposal at all,” but when baseball star Crawford, 32, got down on one knee “it took Evelyn by surprise.”
Back in November, Lozada announced that she was pregnant but would not reveal the name of her second child’s father. In early December, she told OMG! Insider that it was Crawford, who she began dating earlier this year, and that their child was due in late March.
“I definitely would get married again,” she added in the interview. “I still believe in love .… I’m not one of those people that’s like ‘we need to get engaged, we need to get married.’ No, absolutely not. I feel like that’s going to come, just like with the baby, let it come. I’m not forcing anything, so if it happens, it happens.”
And it did. This engagement may have lightened some stress in Lozada’s fiancé’s life as he is going through a custody battle with the mother of his two young children. The lawsuit details show the L.A. Dodger is trying to keep his children’s mother, Amy Freeman, from relocating to L.A. from Arizona. Crawford has not spoken out about the recent findings, but it is believed that he hopes to prevent the move to save himself some cash; California’s child support laws would mean an increase in cash flow for Freeman.
Lozada wasn’t the only one to receive a huge rock for Christmas, Vincent Herbert presented his wife, Tamar Braxton with a huge diamond. Actually, several diamonds around one huge diamond. Tamar shared a pic of the present on IG saying, “”I’ll say yes!&yes!&YES Vincent Herbert a zillion years…..cause we will #STAY&FIGHT!! I’ll LOVE you forever!!..man of my dreams!!! We’re so true..”
