‘Basketball Wives’: Evelyn Lozada, Carl Crawford welcome son; no name released

Evelyn Lozada -Mrs. Carter: Big news breaking from the world of “Basketball Wives” star Evelyn Lozada: She is now a mom to a baby boy!

After becoming engaged last year and announcing that she and MLB star Carl Crawford (Evelyn clearly has a type) were expecting a child together, she released the following statement today to announce her baby boy officially entering the world:

“I’m literally on cloud nine! My baby boy is so handsome and I’m so geeked! I have been waiting for this little man to arrive and seeing his beautiful face is breathtaking. Thank God he came out quick.”

Based on the tone of this particular statement, it is probably pretty fair to assume that both mother and baby are both doing just fine, and will likely have a nice span of time now to rest comfortable and recover from what has to have been a pretty hectic past few months. Wondering what her son’s name is? So are we, she hasn’t released her baby name as of yet, but we are hoping for something that isn’t too Hollywood and won’t garner mockery from the peanut gallery.

The journey to happiness for Evelyn was at times a long and winding road. She was originally a part of the VH1 series thanks in part to relationship with former basketball star Antoine Walker, which lasted for many years and included a very long engagement. Then, there was her contentious relationship with Chad Johnson, which ended with a terrible  arrest and a domestic dispute.So in the end, we’re happy that she has found someone in Crawford who she seems to be happy with. Not only that, but she seems comfortable enough to by and large stay out of the spotlight. Her pregnancy was a secret for the vast majority of it, and her name has fluttered out of the headlines in recent months since the relationship first began.
