Love is in the air for Evelyn Lozado, who announced her new engagement. The Basketball Wives alum is preparing to walk down the aisle again, this time with Lavon Lewis. Lozada and Lewis met on none other than reality television after Evelyn was featured on a dating show. Peacock's Queens Court stars Lozada, Tamar Braxton, and Nivea, and the ladies dated 21 men in an effort to find their Prince Charming. According to PEOPLE, Lozada and Lewis met on the second episode and nurtured their connection to a proposal. He reportedly dropped down to one knee in December on Lozada's birthday.
"The thing about Evelyn is, it is very hard to surprise her," the marketing firm cofounder told PEOPLE. "I told her to pack her bags, we're going somewhere. She was blindfolded until she got to the front door. She walked in to about 20 close friends and family and the big 'marry me' letters, roses on the ground, things like that." It was all a surprise for Lozada, who said she had no clue her man planned to pop the question.
Evelyn Lozada Is Ready For A New Beginning
"I didn't know that he was going to propose that day," Lozada shared. "I didn't know what I was walking into. He was being very sneaky and, in all honesty, I was a little irritated because I'm such an alpha female. I'm kind of like, 'Why do I have to pack? Why do I have to do this?' It was really, really difficult for me to just let go and allow him to do his thing." The couple is still working out their distance, as Lewis lives in Atlanta and Lozada resides in L.A. Still, she added he makes sure to hop on a plane to see her whenever possible.
Additionally, Lewis is also a man who pays attention to his woman. Lozada previously partnered with Twila True for her jewelry line, and Lewis turned to the company to help design the engagement ring. "It was the perfect size and shape," Lozada further shared. "I've never had that stone, so he did a really, really good job. But I'm not surprised. Lavon is a creative mind and he doesn't forget anything."
Relationships Of The Past
This makes for Lozada's third engagement and second marriage. She was in a ten-year relationship with former NBA star Antoine Walker. The two were engaged but split in 2008. She later dated former MLB star turned 1501 Certified Entertainment founder Carl Crawford. The two welcomed a son and were engaged before breaking up in 2017. She was also infamously married to Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson for a month but divorced following their domestic violence incident.
