Evelyn Lozada Married Chad Ochocinco, Evelyn Lozada and Chad Ochocinco tied the knot in Miami, Fla., on the Fourth of July as friends, family and of course VH1′s cameras looked on. The reality star, 36, and the NFL player, 34, said their vows for their VH1 show, Eve and Ocho, debuting in September. Yes, that’s a real show.
The football star also live tweeted portions of his big day, allowing his 3.5 million Twitter followers to gain access to his pre-ceremony planning.
Once the ceremony wrapped, Ochocinco updated his profile pic to show off an image of his and Evelyn Lozada’s wedding rings. Ah, 21st Century romance.
“How many times is Eve gonna change outfits… Is this normal to have more than 1 outfit besides the wedding gown?” Ochocinco jokingly tweeted.
Getting married to the Basketball Wives star on July 4 was in part a calculated move, Chad admits, “so I’d never forget our damn anniversary.”
After (mostly) enjoying a two-year engagement and weathering some ups and downs – such as briefly calling off the wedding – the couple is on cloud nine.
Says Evelyn of her new husband:
“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.”
