It’s a boy for newly engaged Evelyn Lozada and Carl Crawford!
She broke the news to PEOPLE, saying:
“Surprisingly, I found out when I had my first trimester screening.”
“I was about 13 weeks when they told me the sex! I was honestly praying for a boy. I have wanted to have a son for years,” adds Lozada, who often talked about her desire to have a son on Basketball Wives.
Her 20-year-old daughter, Shaniece, was right by her mother’s side when she found out the happy news.
“We were both so happy. There are all girls on my side, so this will be our first boy. My family is over the moon,” Lozada says. ”Every time I go to the doctor, I have them check to make sure it’s a boy. I’m still in disbelief!
“Shaniece is just happy that she can still be the princess of the family,” adds Lozada jokingly. “Her brother is already her BFF in her head.”
Now seven months along, the mom-to-be will be celebrating her upcoming arrival with a “diapers and diamonds” themed baby shower this Saturday in Los Angeles.
Shaniece and Evelyn’s Basketball Wives costar, Shaunie O’Neal, as well as close friends Teresa Caldwell and Danika Berry have taken on the hosting duties, while the event is being organized by celebrity event planner Diann Valentine.
Congrats Evelyn and Carl!
