According to TMZ, which was first to break the news, the 37-year-old mom-to-be is around six months along. The pregnancy was reportedly planned, and the father is Lozada’s boyfriend, whom she has apparently been dating for almost a year now. (She’s keeping his identity under wraps for now.)

The star showed off her growing baby bump on vacation with her 20-year-old daughter, Shaniece Hairston, in Hawaii on Thursday, Nov. 28. She wore a black bikini under a black-and-white semi-sheer caftan.
“You deserve everything that GOD sends your way. I am so excited to meet my new sibling!” Hairston wrote via Instagram. She included a photo of the two walking on the beach, her hand on her mom’s growing baby bump. “#YouJustKeepWinning #BabySwag #JOY”

Lozada was previously (and very famously) married to Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson for a brief time in 2012. The couple wed in July but split just a little over a month later, after the NFL player was arrested on a domestic violence charge for allegedly head-butting his then-wife. They finalized their divorce in September of that same year.

“Evelyn and Mr. Johnson were divorced this morning in an uncontested final hearing,” Lozada’s attorney told Us Weekly at the time. “My client is a single woman and looks forward to her future.”
