Everyone knows the name Chad Ochocinco. How could they not? The New England Patriots wide receiver just faced off against the Giants in Super Bowl XVLI and lost the winning title to the New York team.
But who is Evelyn Lozada? Evelyn Lozada is Chad Ochocinco's fiancée. She is a stunning Puerto Rican beauty who is ready to live a life of wedded bliss with her footballer husband. Yet, Lozada is more than just another pretty WAG. Here are seven things to know about the bride-to-be.
Evelyn Lozada Will Wed in July
Evelyn Lozada will marry boyfriend Chad Ochocinco in July. According to TMZ, Ochocinco plans on changing his last name again for his wife-to-be. Ochocinco is not the NFL player's real name. His birth name is Johnson and he will legally change his name back to Johnson so his wife does not have a made-up last name.
She had a 10-Carat Ring
Ochocinco proposed to Lozada in November 2010 with a 10-carat ring after just four months of dating. Lozada instantly tweeted a photo of the sparkler to her Twitter fans, writing, I'm no rabbit but 10 carats looks good on me!! Let the hating begin.
She Put Her Wedding on Hold in January
Lozada put her wedding to Ochocinco on hold in early January. TMZ reported that she was concerned about Ochocinco's philandering. Lozada suspected the NFL star had cheated on her so she put the brakes on moving any further with the NFL star.

She Might Have Secretly Rooted for the Giants
Though Evelyn Lozada was at the Super Bowl to support her man, who plays for the Patriots, it is hard to believe she does not have a soft-spot for the Giants. The brunette beauty is New York born and raised. She was born in Brooklyn and raised in the Bronx by her single mother. According to her bio, she is always in a New York state of mind.
Evelyn Lozada, Reality-TV Star
Lozada is a reality-TV star. She is part of the cast of VH1's Basketball Wives. She was formerly engaged to basketball star Antoine Walker, who recently filed for bankruptcy and is now playing for the Idaho Stampede. Lozada met Walker while working for an entertainment attorney to the stars. She has been dubbed a villain in the show, but resents the judgment. From Season 1, they started calling me and Jennifer mean and evil. If me being mean is me being honest and real... Maybe my delivery is not always what everybody wants. Everybody has their own way of dealing with things, Lozada told Vibe Vixen. But if me being honest and blunt is being mean, then that's fine. Girl, none of that stuff bothers me. When you sign on to do a reality show, life is no longer private and everyone is judging it.
She is in the Fashion Biz
Evelyn Lozada moved to Miami in 2007 while dating Walker, who was playing for Miami Heat at the time. Once in Miami, the beauty adopted it as her second home and developed her career there. She co-owns Dulce (and dulceshoes.net), an upscale shoe boutique in Coral Gables, Fla. According to her VH1 bio, Dulce now allows Evelyn to live out her childhood dreams of fashion. In addition to being a socialite that supports many charitable causes, Evelyn takes great pride in being a devoted mother and businesswoman.
