Update (March 24, 2014):
Evelyn and Carl's new baby boy will carry on the family name. Welcome to little Carl Leo! He will be called by his middle name, Eveyln's rep tells People, a name the couple decided on because daddy Carl is a Leo and "wanted his son to have every aspect of him including his birth sign."
Original story (March 22, 2014):
Congratulations go out to Evelyn Lozada and fiancé Carl Crawford, who have welcomed their first child together! Evelyn gave birth to their boy on March 22.
Evelyn, 38, announced the exciting news on Twitter on the big day. "I have EXCITING NEWS!" the Basketball Wives star tweeted. "Thank you God for my blessing!"
OK! magazine confirms that Evelyn delivered the boy in a natural birth. The bundle of joy weighs in at 8 lbs. and is 21 inches long. The newborn's name has not yet been revealed. Evelyn has previously said that she hopes to drop her baby weight in a mere two months.
"It was very quick, and Evelyn is happy because she was super nervous," her rep tells People. "Baby boy is so handsome, and she can’t wait to reveal him to the world." Well, we can't wait to see him!
Evelyn has a 20-year-old daughter, Shaniece, from a previous relationship. Evelyn was engaged to former NBA star Antoine Walker during a 10-year relationship and was briefly married to NFL player Chad Johnson in 2012.
When news broke about Evelyn's pregnancy last fall, she didn't initially reveal the father's identity. She later confirmed that the father is L.A. Dodgers outfielder Carl, and the couple got engaged over the holidays. They currently live together in Arizona.
We wish all the best to the happy family!
