Evelyn Lozada is a mom again! The Basketball Wives star gave birth to a baby boy on Saturday, March 22, she confirmed herself via Twitter. "I have EXCITING NEWS!" the 38-year-old wrote. "Thank you God for my blessing!" Her baby boy arrived at 3:55 a.m. and weighed in at 8 lbs., 21 inches.

"She is super excited and she delivered him naturally," Lozada's rep says of the birth. "Evelyn is so excited and her entire family was there as well as [fiancé Carl Crawford] and his family." 

Lozada is already mom to daughter Shaniece Hairston, 20, from a previous relationship. The reality star announced back in November that she and Crawford were expecting their first child together. The couple were engaged one month earlier. 

The new relationship and baby come just over a year after Lozada's public and humiliating split from ex-husband Chad Johnson. Lozada filed for divorce shortly after the couple got into a physical fight, reportedly stemming from Johnson's infidelities, that left Lozada with a gash on her forehead. The former NFL player was arrested for head-butting Lozada just one month after they tied the knot.

Congratulations to Evelyn and her happy family!
