‘I Was Honestly Praying For A Boy:’ Evelyn Lozada Reveals The Sex Of Her Baby
Last November we found out that former “Basketball Wives” star Evelyn Lozada was pregnant with her second child. It was eventually revealed that the child’s father is Los Angeles Dodgers player Carl Crawford. The two later got engaged. Now with just a few more weeks to go before she delivers her little bundle, the mom-to-be has revealed the sex of the baby. It turns out she’s having a boy!
“Surprisingly, I found out when I had my first trimester screening,”the 37-year-old told People.
She went on to say that a baby boy is exactly what she’d been hoping for.
“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.”
Evelyn’s 20-year-old daughter, Shaniece Hairston, is also elated to be welcoming a little brother.
“Shaniece is just happy that she can still be the princess of the family,” Evelyn joked. “Her brother is already her BFF in her head.”
“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. Every time I go to the doctor, I have them check to make sure it’s a boy. I’m still in disbelief!”
As for baby shower plans, Ev says a diapers & diamonds-themed baby shower is in the works. The shower is scheduled to take place Saturday, February 8th and will be hosted by “Basketball Wives” executive producer Shaunie O’Neal, rapper Bow Wow’s mother, Teresa Caldwell, and Ev’s publicist and friend, Danika Berry. It’s being organized by celebrity event planner Diann Valentine. So far, no baby names have been selected.
“Carl and I have a few in mind, but haven’t decided yet,” said Evelyn.
She seems very happy.
