EXCLUSIVE: Evelyn Lozada and Chad Ochocinco Are Planning to Use In Vitro!

Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada is having her engagement party to Chad Ochocinco this evening on a yacht owned by one of the couple’s billionaire friends in Miami. When we called Evelyn this morning to congratulate her, the Puerto Rican reality star revealed to us exclusively that they are determined to have a baby boy — even if it means using in vitro fertilization (IVF) to guarantee that it happens. 

"One of the things we're interested in, if I don't get pregnant before that, is in vitro," Evelyn said. "We would like to have twin boys and with all of the amazing things doctors can do, maybe they can work it out for me!"

Evelyn says she and Ocho aren't just thinking about doing IVF — they've already gone to a specialist to discuss the process, and according to Evelyn, it's actually pretty simple. "We told the doctor we would love to have twin boys — or at least make sure that we have a boy," she says, "and he was like, 'Hey, no problem!' ” {Laughs}

She adds: "The doctor said, 'We just need a sample [from Chad] and we'll basically separate the boys from the girls.’ Apparently, it’s not a difficult process to do. "It was pretty interesting," she says. 

The 35-year-old Evelyn says her reasons for wanting to do IVF have nothing to do with infertility. "You don’t have to necessarily have problems getting pregnant, sometimes people do in vitro just to make sure that they get the sex that they want to get," she says. "I don’t have any fertility issues. The doctor gave me a thorough check up and said everything was fine. But it's more to make sure that I'm guaranteed a boy."

Evelyn says IVF is the norm in Hollywood. "I highly doubt that J.Lo and Mariah Carey just had twins and that everybody's having twins out of nowhere," she says. "C'mon, everybody does that now. It's common in this world."

Despite how common it is, Evelyn is prepared to deal with her fair share of haters, she says: "I'm sure there are going to be a few people out there like, 'Are you crazy? What are you doing?' But I'm going to have my son whether anybody likes it or not. It's going to happen for me.” 

Evelyn, who says she plans to get married to Ocho next summer, preferably in May or June, says there's a good chance that they could get pregnant before the wedding—even if that’s not ideal. "Lets just keep it real: I'm not on birth control," she says. "If it happens, it happens. But if we can plan it, I'd rather do that,' she says.
