It’s been ages since I even brought up Evelyn Lozada from VH1‘s Basketball Wives, but I just couldn’t pass up on this story. The reality star is pregnant y’all. She divorced Chad Ochocinco in 2012 following their highly-publicized domestic violence incident and since then has been seeing a new mystery man. She and her new boo are presumably doing pretty well, as they are now expecting a child together. Congratulations are in order! Click inside for more.

People has the deets:
Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada has a little bundle of joy on the way!
“I am so excited to announce a wonderful blessing — I’m pregnant!” the 37-year-old tells PEOPLE exclusively, confirming that she is six months along.
Lozada, who divorced Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson in 2012, after just two months of marriage, says she has been planning to have a baby for years and even talked about it on her reality show. So she was overjoyed when she took an at-home test and learned she was pregnant.
Lozada is keeping the identity of the baby’s father a secret at the moment.
“I’m excited about being a mommy all over again,” adds Lozada, who has a daughter, Shaniece, 20, from a previous relationship. “This is something I’ve been wanting for years and I can’t believe it’s finally happening.”
Evelyn seems pretty psyched about the new baby– I can’t imagine a 20 year gap in baby-making, but I bet she’s crazy-happy right now.
I haven’t been keeping up with her goings-ons lately; last I heard she was refusing to show up at a Basketball Wives reunion show or something. She’s clearly keeping a low profile since she’s been with her boyfriend for some time now and nobody knows who he is. That could actually be a good sign; the high profile relationship didn’t really work out for her last time. Maybe she’s ready for a change.
Well, congrats to the happy couple! Here’s hoping Evelyn has a healthy, peaceful pregnancy.
