It’s a bouncing baby boy for reality star Evelyn Lozada and baby daddy Carl Crawford. The basketball wife reportedly gave birth on March 22, 2014 to child number two.
Her firstborn daughter, Shaniece, is now 20. According to People Magazine, the baby will be tagged Carl Leo, after Dad’s first name and zodiac sign.
Whirlwinds of change
Lozada, whose history of ill-fated relationships has plagued her throughout life, is reportedly ecstatic over the arrival of Baby Leo.
According to the reality star, she’s wanted a sibling for Shaniece for years and couldn’t be happier that her dream has finally come to pass.
Hope for 2014
2014 is shaping up to be a much better year for this basketball wife, whose history with now ex-husband, Chad Johnson of the Miami Dolphins is anything but pleasant.
The couple spent weeks at the top of the tabloids in the fall of 2012 amid accusations of domestic abuse, cheating and a subsequent divorce. Lozada said she’d had enough when a disagreement with Johnson ending in him head butting her to the tune of six stitches.
A girl has to know when to call it quits, and that’s just what the lovely Lozada did. She filed for divorce two days after the alleged incident took place, a mere 41 days into their marriage.
Now it looks like nothing but blue skies and diapers on the horizon for the sports diva, as she settles comfortably in with Crawford and Leo. Well, blue skies with a side of tension tossed in as Crawford’s custody struggles with former partner Amy Freeman are as famous as Lozada’s marital woes.
In December of 2013, about the time Crawford and Lozada were announcing their engagement, Crawford was also petitioning the courts to keep Freeman out of California. Was he trying to evade child support payments to his previous two children by Freeman?
According to TMZ, Crawford claimed his ex was only trying to take advantage of California’s stricter child support laws, which sounds like sour grapes to us.
Let’s hope Crawford plans to be a little more involved with Baby Leo than he seems to be with his two previous children, a nine-year-old son and a five-month-old daughter. Fidelity is always nice too. Whatever lay on the horizon for these two embattled stars and their offspring, we wish them only the best.
