ENGAGED: Chad Ochocinco And Evelyn Lozada
NFL wide receiver Chad Ochocinco recently made the switch from the Cincinnati Bengals to the New England Patriots. He also recently made the switch from single to engaged. Ochocinco proposed to Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada, 35, with a 10-carat engagement ring.
Lozada was previously engaged to NBA star Antoine Walker, which led to her spot on Wives, which in turn led to her reputation for a fiery temper and foul language, The Boston Herald reports. “I think I’ve toned it down a notch this season. You know, Evelyn is a little bit of a firecracker. I’m a work in progress,” she joked. “Just don’t try me and my man.”
Ochocinco and Lozada recently moved in to a two-bedroom apartment near the Patriots' stadium in Boston and also had a special fish tank installed over their bed by Wayde King and Brett Raymer, stars of Animal Planet’s new reality show, Tanked. Lozada said she’s looking forward to living with Ochocinco for the first time and meeting their new neighbors, Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen. “I’m not opposed to a double date. I’d invite them out,” she said. "Maybe it could be Tom, Gisele, Evelyn and Chad take over Boston. That would be cool.”
Between the two of them, Ochocinco and Lozada have five children, but they are already making plans to add two more. Once they are legally wed in a big Miami ceremony next summer, Lozada plans to have twin boys through in vitro fertilization and to name them Pepe and Esteban. “The twins are waiting for me,” she said. “That’s the great thing about in vitro. You can plan rather than having an oopsie.”
