Evelyn Lozada‘s son, Carl “Leo” Crawford, turned six on March 22. The Bronx beauty showered her baby boy with love on his special day by sending him a gushy “happy birthday” message through her social media page. The “Basketball Wives” cast member revealed that she would take her son to Hawaii soon to celebrate his big day since they were not able to travel on his actual birthday.
Lozada uploaded a photo of Leo wearing his green-and-white baseball uniform for his birthday shoutout picture. Her son stood in front of his Easton backpack and was not paying attention to the camera. Leo’s off-guarded photo caused social media users to burst with excitement over his seemingly striking appearance.
“He’s so handsome ❤️,” one user wrote.
“He is so damn handsome 😍😍,” a second user gushed.
A third fan complimented the New York native by saying, “Wow, we really have watched him grow. Seems like just yesterday he was born. Awesome kid, great parenting, it shows 🙏🏿👍🏿.”
“Awww so adorable 😍😍,” a fourth fan commented.
“He’s so handsome; I bet he’s spoiled ❤️,” a fifth user wrote.
“He’s the cutest….make another one! 😘,” a sixth encouraged.
Lozada and Leo’s father, former MLB player Carl Crawford , announced their engagement in December 2013 and broke their relationship off three years later in August 2017. The pair appear to have a great co-parenting relationship, and threw their son a sports-themed birthday party last year.
Lozada has another child from a previous relationship. At 17, the reality star gave birth to her daughter, Shaniece Hairston. Lozada revealed that her pregnancy with Leo was planned and she enjoyed her second pregnancy with her son much better than the first with her daughter. In regards to her pregnancy with her son, she said, “I feel like I’m really able to enjoy this pregnancy because I’m older and you know I had my daughter when I was young and you’re just going with the flow at that point.”
Despite her hard pregnancy with her daughter, the pair appear to be thick as thieves. The mother-daughter duo had their own reality show ” ‘Livin’ Lozada,” in 2015. Their show premiered on the OWN network and was cancelled after two seasons.
