Evelyn Lozada, Carl Crawford engaged

My, what a ridiculously enormous diamond you have.


My, what a ridiculously enormous diamond you have.



Evelyn Lozada has hit the athlete trifecta, scoring a $1.4 million engagement ring from Dodgers outfielder and former Tampa Bay Ray Carl Crawford.

The Basketball Wives reality star — who announced in November that she is expecting a child with Crawford — posted a photo of her ring on Instagram with the caption “YES!” As in, YES this is even bigger than Gabrielle Union’s ring.

“I’m overjoyed and in complete and utter shock!” Lozada, 37, tells People.

A 14.5-carat diamond Christmas gift can have that effect.

Lozada was once engaged to NBA star Antoine Walker and later married NFL star Chad Ochocinco. As for Crawford, he looked at 10 or 15 stones before choosing the one.

“Carl has been a longtime client of mine,” said Jason Arasheben, CEO of Jason of Beverly Hills, who also designed Union’s ring from Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade. “And I knew immediately that he was really smitten and in love and wanted to make a statement that would light up the Christmas tree as well as the bride-to-be.”

… As well as the entire Internet.
