The Basketball Wives star, 37, who confirmed her second pregnancy via Twitter in late November, kept the identity of the baby’s father under wraps — although it was speculated to be pro-baseball player Carl Crawford. Lozada confirmed to OMG!’s Nina Parker that the rumors were indeed true: The Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder, 32, also nicknamed “The Perfect Storm” by fans, is the father of her baby.

Is a wedding next? “I definitely would get married again,” she said in the interview. “I’m not one of those people that’s like ‘we need to get engaged, we need to get married.’ No, absolutely not. I feel like that’s going to come, just like with the baby, let it come. I’m not forcing anything, so if it happens, it happens.” The reality star, who has a 20-year-old daughter named Shaniece from a previous relationship, also revealed her due date is in late March.

Lozada also went on to reveal that she was in love with Crawford — “I still believe in love,” she said — despite her tumultuous relationship past. (She was famously married to Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson for about one month in 2012. The couple split after the former NFL player was arrested on a domestic violence charge, and finalized their divorce in September 2012. Lozada’s attorney told Us Weekly after the divorce was completed, “My client is a single woman and looks forward to her future.”)

The interview will air on OMG! Insider on Monday, Dec. 9 on CBS.
