“Basketball Wives” star Evelyn Lozada said yes to football player Chad Ochocinco marriage proposal in November last year and are now engaged. The couple has made no wedding plans until now, but rumor has it that we will hear the wedding bells in the summer of next year.
Evelyn Lozada,35, and Chad, 31, got engaged at the end of 2010, after only four months of dating. Lozada was previously engaged to Celtic’s star Antoine Walker. But when she met Chad, she met real love. He offered her a 10-carat diamond ring, she said yes and they are planning to organize the wedding for the summer of 2012.
In March 2011, Lozada talked to People magazine on the reasons they do not want to rush into marriage. “He has four kids. I have one. “We want to be engaged for at least a year and enjoy our time with our children, and then we’re going to plan our wedding”, she told the magazine at Cosmopolitan’s Fun Fearless Males of 2011, where her fiancée was honored.
When it comes how the wedding is going to be like, Lozada does not want to enter “the most glamorous, richest wedding of the century” competition, along with Kim Kardashian and petra Ecclestone. On the contrary, she would prefer a more intimate ceremony. “I want something small, even though he wants something big”, the star confesses and gives her most important argument to support it: “I want something intimate. I’m 35, and we have five kids together. I don’t want anything over the top.” She and husband agree 100% upon one thing, though. They both want more children. “The more kids, the happier I am”, she says and adds that she would love to have twins.
Lozada has a 17-year-old daughter, Shaniece. Chad has four children of his own: Jicyra, Chad Johnson II, Chade and Cha’iel.
