If anyone deserves love, it’s Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada. The 38-year-old beauty was married to football player Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson on July 4, 2012, but the couple split just 41 days later after Chad allegedly headbutted Evelyn during an argument. The split was tough on Ev, and Chad’s life took a turn for the worse in the wake of the alleged domestic violence, as well. He was sent to jail, fired from the Miami Dolphins, and lost many lucrative sponsorships.
But now it’s December 2013, and while Chad is still on the front row of the struggle bus, Evelyn couldn’t be happier. She’s six months pregnant with L.A. Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford’s baby and she’s totally in love! During an interview with omg! INSIDER — her first since announcing her pregnancy — Evelyn seemed happier than ever, likely thanks to Carl and her kiddo on the way.
When asked if should would ever marry again, Evelyn said, “I think I would,” before getting in a little dig at Chad. “Does my first marriage really count? I was only married 41 days but I guess it does. I definitely would get married again.”
And when asked if she was in love, Ev had an even more aw-worthy response. “Yes,” she declared. “I’m very happy. I‘m not going to sit up here and say ‘Oh my god, everything is so perfect,’ but everything just feels good, and I‘m in a good space.”
Evelyn will become a mom for the second time in March 2014 (her daughter, Shaniece, is 20) and she believes she was meant to be a mother!
