Evelyn Lozada and Carl Crawford are parents for the first time together. The Basketball Wives star and the L.A. Dodgers outfielder welcomed a son on Saturday!
Born at 3:55 a.m., the new addition weighed in at 8 lbs. and measured 21 inches long. Crawford by her side, Lozada delivered naturally in just four pushes.
“It was very quick and she is happy because she was super nervous,” Lozada's rep said. “Baby boy is so handsome and she can’t wait to reveal him to the world.”
In a Tweet posted Saturday afternoon, Evelyn Lozada wrote:
“I have EXCITING NEWS! Thank you God for my blessing!”
It's the first child for Crawford and Lozada, but her second overall, joining big sister Shaniece, 20, her daughter from a previous relationship.
“I’m excited about being a mommy all over again. This is something I’ve been wanting for years and I can’t believe it’s finally happening,” she said.
Although the mom-to-be initially kept the identity of the baby’s father a secret, she and Carl Crawford got engaged over the holidays last winter.
She was previously married to Chad Johnson, until he head-butted her in an argument purportedly over his cheating just weeks after they married.
Here's hoping for better from Carl. Congrats to the couple!
