Theballerlife.com has learned that MLB star Carl Crawford popped the big question to former “Basketball Wives” star and mother of his unborn baby Evelyn Lozada on Christmas day.
The reality star, who’s expecting a baby with the Los Angeles Dodgers player, posted a picture of her huge diamond engagement ring on Instagram on Wednesday along with one word: “YES!”
“I’m overjoyed and in complete and utter shock!” Lozada, 37, tells PEOPLE. “What a different year and a half it has been – I’m truly happy!”
Her rep tells PEOPLE that Lozada, who announced her pregnancy in November, “wasn’t expecting a proposal at all,” and when Crawford got down on one knee on Christmas Day “it took Evelyn by surprise.”
The 14.5-carat diamond ring was made especially for her by Jason Arasheben, CEO of Jason of Beverly Hills.
The couple’s engagement comes on the heels of Carl reportedly ordering his other kids’ mother (of his 5 month old and 9-year-old) to stay away from L.A. where he lives part-time. Carl also lives in Arizona, we’re told, where the children’s mother has lived for 12 years.
Congrats to Carl and Eveleyn!
