Where is Evelyn Lozada from? Evelyn Lozada is from Brooklyn, New York, where she was born on December 10, 1975. The “Basketball Wives” star was raised in the Bronx, and according to her official Vh1 biography, she’s “always in the New York state of mind.” Lozada took her first steps toward the big time when she nabbed a job as an assistant to a prominent entertainment attorney, and in 2007, she moved to Miami, her adopted hometown. By that time, she’d become engaged to basketball star Antoine Walker, though the couple never actually walked down the aisle. Instead, Lozada’s first marriage was to the NFL player Chad Johnson, aka Chad Ochocinco, who was to be her costar in the spinoff Vh1 reality series “Ev and Ocho.” Unfortunately, the pair divorced in September 2012, and the series never aired. Luckily, Evelyn has rebounded and found new love, and in December 2013, she announced her engagement to Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford.

Evelyn Lozada may be a New York City girl, but this Brooklyn-born, Bronx-raised Puerto Rican stunner is now a national star, thanks to her stint on “Basketball Wives.” In March 2014, she made headlines by giving birth to a baby boy, her second child and first with Crawford. The news came some three months after the 32-year-old baseball star popped the question and gave his bride-to-be a 14.5 carat diamond ring worth $1.4 million, according to TMZ. Lozada’s romantic success with Crawford comes after a tumultuous union with Johnson, who famously headbutted Evelyn during a fight in August 2012. The incident seems to have put the nail in the coffin of their marriage, though it earned Lozada some added media attention, and when you’re a reality TV personality, that’s never a bad thing.

More and more people may be curious about where Evelyn Lozada is from after she and Crawford exchange their vows, as the wedding is sure to make headlines and catch the eyes of folks who don’t normally watch Vh1 reality shows. (Unless people like that don’t actually exist.)
