Evelyn Lozada and Chad Ochocinco Are Married

The couple swapped vows in front of TV cameras for their upcoming reality show, Ev and Ocho."I Do!"

Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada and NFL player Chad Ochocinco finally tied the knot on Wednesday, the 4th of July. The couple exchanged vows in front of their friends, family and a camera crew for their upcoming VH1 reality show, Ev and Ocho.

The Miami Dolphins player also live-tweeted portions of his big day, including his pre-ceremony prep and a post-vows' snap of his and Lozada's wedding rings, to his 3.5 million Twitter followers.

"How many times is Eve gonna change outfits," read one of his tweets. "Is this normal to have more than one outfit besides the wedding gown?"

Ocho also revealed via Twitter that it was his idea to culminate their two-year engagement with an Independence Day wedding, "so I never forget our damn anniversary."

Lozada was feeling particularly sentimental on her big day, which comes at the end of her most controversial season of Basketball Wives yet. "Before we met, we communicated over the phone for a month. We got to know each other like that before seeing each other," she tells Us Weekly. "We have a true friendship. And he can keep up with my mouth! I'm very verbal, and say what I think and feel. He's the same way. He makes me laugh."

For those that didn't get an invite, the wedding will be seen on a future episode of Ev and Ocho. Congratulations to the happy couple! is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
