It’s going to be a boy for Evelyn Lozada

“Surprisingly, I found out when I had my first trimester screening,” Lozada, 37, told People. 

The reality TV star, who is seven months pregnant, already has a daughter from a previous relationship. 20-year-old Shaniece was at her mother's side when they received the happy news. 

“Shaniece is just happy that she can still be the princess of the family,” Lozada jokes. “Her brother is already her BFF in her head.” 

The Basketball Wives star admits that she has always wanted a boy, and she often talks about her desire for a son on episodes of the TV show. 

“I was about 13 weeks when they told me the sex! I was honestly praying for a boy. I have wanted to have a son for years,” Lozada says.

Lozada will be celebrating her new son with a “Diapers and Diamonds” themed baby shower on Saturday, Feb. 8 in Los Angeles. The event will be hosted by Shaniece and her Basketball Wives costar Shaunie O’Neal, as well as close friends Teresa Caldwell and Danika Berry. Lucky guests have already received custom-made invites adorned with Swarovski crystals. 

The soon-to-be mamá has been having a wonderful year. Over the holidays, she became engaged to the father of the baby, Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford. 

Congrats to the happy couple!
