Evelyn Lozada announces engagement to Carl Crawford on Christmas Day
Evelyn Lozada has announced her engagement to Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford on Christmas Day.
The 38-year-old Basketball Wives star, who is seven months pregnant with Carl Crawford’s child, is coming off a short-lived marriage to former football star Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson.
Evelyn Lozada and Chad Johnson had been filming a planned VH1 reality series, Ev & Chad, just over a month into their marriage when Johnson headbutted his new bride during a fight.
She filed for divorce shortly after the August 2012 incident.
Evelyn Lozada had become entangled with Chad Johnson on the rebound after a 10-year relationship with NBA forward Antoine Walker. She also has a daughter, 20-year-old Shaneice Lozada, from a previous relationship.
She broke the engagement news on her Instagram account, posting a picture of a 14.5 carat diamond ring on her finger with the caption: “Yes!”
The ring is valued at $1.4 million, TMZ reported.
Carl Crawford, 32, is rounding the third year of a seven-year $142 million contract he originally signed with the Boston Red Sox.
