Dancing with the Stars: Chad Ochocinco Confirms Engagement

December 01, 2010 09:00 AM by Shayla Perry


In a call to Ryan Seacrest’s radio show, NFL player and former contestant on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, Chad Ochocinco confirmed that he is engaged to reality star Evelyn Lozada.

“I think I’ve found everything I’ve been looking for in one person,” said Chad of his bride-to-be.

“She’s everything I’ve been missing. Enough is enough. I’m 32, you know, my days are over.”

How romantic!

Ochocinco, who plays for the Cincinnati Bengals, has been dating Lozada for just four months, but the two fell in love quickly and got engaged in early November.

Though Chad is just now publicly confirming the engagement , Lozada, 34, tweeted a picture of herself flashing her diamond engagement bling a week earlier, announcing to friends, family, and fans, “I’m no rabbit but 10 carats looks good on me!! Let the hating begin.”

Sidenote: 10 carats look good on anyone–rabbits included.

Evelyn Lozada, a former model, is a cast member on VH1′s reality show Basketball Wives, despite the fact that she’s technically a basketball ex-wife to ex-NBA star Antoine Walker.

This will be the first marriage for Chad Ochocinco, but not his first proposal–if you’re counting the time he got down on one knee and proposed to a cheerleader on the sideline after scoring a touchdown. And it’s definitely not the first ring he’s gifted… Remember when he gave his dancing partner Cheryl Burke a diamond ring during his stint on DWTS?

The big question: Now that she’s going to be a Football Wife, will Lozada be leaving the show (and reality TV) for good? Will we see Ochocinco on Basketball Wives? Or will Lozada and her attention-loving hubby-to-be have their own reality show? Our guess is that the plans are already in motion.
