Dodgers' Carl Crawford Engaged To Evelyn Lozada

Los Angeles Dodgers' outfielder Carl Crawford is engaged to reality star Evelyn Lozada.

Crawford asked Lozada to marry him on Christmas Day, according to the Los Angeles Times. The "Basketball Wives" star, who ex-fiancee of former NBA star Antoine Walker and the ex-wife of former Miami Dolphins' player Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson, announced the happy news with an Instagram photo of her 14-carat engagement ring.

"I'm overjoyed and in complete and utter shock!" Lozada told People magazine of the engagement. "What a different year and a half it has been – I'm truly happy!"

The 37-year-old's rep said she "wasn't expecting a proposal at all" and "it took Evelyn by surprise."

In November, TMZ first reported Lozada is pregnant with Crawford's child. She is allegedly seven months along.

Earlier this month, she opened up about her relationship with the MLB star during an interview with OMG! Insider.

"I'm not one of those people that's like ‘we need to get engaged, we need to get married,’" she said, per Us Weekly. "No, absolutely not. I feel like that's going to come, just like with the baby, let it come. I'm not forcing anything, so if it happens, it happens.”

Johnson, who split from Lozada last year after claims he physically abused her, told TMZ he is "happy" for his pregnant ex and already bought her baby some Louboutin shoes.
