Mrs. Carter: Evelyn Lozada has finally lifted the veil on her mysterious new love … and also the father of her unborn child.
During a new interview on the ridiculously-named show “OMG! Insider,” the “Basketball Wives” star revealed that Carl Crawford, a baseball star for the Los Angeles Dodgers, is not only the love of her life, but is also the father of her unborn child. She has been in this relationship for over half a year now and not only that, but early reports say that the couple planned this pregnancy. This is the third athlete from a different sport that she has been in some sort of long-term relationship with. First, Lozada was with Antoine Walker of the NBA for many years, and following that, there was the relationship with Chad Johnson that led to a wedding and unfortunately, a terrible situation involving domestic violence.
Now, she is seemingly happy in her personal life once again, and despite everything that has happened with her, she still is interested in getting married if the situation presents itself:
“I definitely would get married again. I’m not one of those people that’s like ‘we need to get engaged, we need to get married.’ 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.”
The length of this relationship also helps now to explain better why she didn’t want to tape the “Basketball Wives” reunion show earlier this year, which was a move that led to the taping being canceled: She knew that she would just be forced to talk about her relationship with Johnson, and since she is happy now in a new relationship, the last thing that she wanted to do is go down that emotional road once again. After living through that broken relationship, then going through the separation and divorce, then watching the aftermath play out on “Basketball Wives”, we completely understand Evelyn not wanting to open that box again. It’s time to put that away and enjoy her amazing man while getting ready to become a mom.
