‘Basketball Wives’ star Evelyn Lozada pregnant, but how did she keep it a secret this long?

Evelyn Lozada -Mrs. Carter: This is the sort of “breaking news” that you would have imagined to break quite a long time ago.

At this point around a year and a half ago,, Evelyn Lozada was almost everywhere in the press stemming from that volatile, explosive situation regarding Chad Johnson and the domestic violence that took place not long after the two parties were married. However, since that time the “Basketball Wives” star (who recently skipped out on the reunion show) has stayed away from the public spotlight, and has been dating a man for much of the past year.

It is this sort of under-the-radar way of living that was able to keep her secret for this long: She’s pregnant! Not only that, but she is already six months along with and is definitely showing. It’s a real coup for her privacy that she was able to keep this hidden for as long as she has, and there are still not many details out there about the baby’s father. What is being reported by TMZ is that the pregnancy was planned, and these two have been very happily together for some time.

Evelyn made headlines a little earlier this year when she opted to not attend the reunion show, and it was then shut down without airing at all. At the time, the reason for that was that she did not want to sit around and talk about Chad and what went wrong there any longer than she had to, but this pregnancy news certainly adds another layer to it. She would have been around five months along at the time, and she may not have wanted to make the big announcement at a place that has festered so much negativity for herself and her family over the past year or so, even if that is not the fault of the show itself. Sometimes you just form negative attachments to certain things thanks to what happens there.

Are you happy for Evelyn, and surprised that the news was not revealed to anyone before now? Be sure to share some of your thoughts with a comment below.
