Well it’s official now Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada and Miami Dolphins player Chad Ochocinco are officially husband and wife! The couple tied the knot in Miami on Wednesday July 4th.
The wedding was filmed for “Ev and Ocho,” which will air on VH1, beginning in September.
The former “Dancing with the Stars” contestant live tweeted throughout the wedding, even noting at one point, “I don’t recall sending the butterflies in my stomach an invite.”
Chad took to Twitter, to share a little about the day.
Live tweeting from my wedding… should be a first I’m assuming, music is playing, can’t see my guest right now but they’re here…#nervous
This is bull shit… I don’t recall sending the butterflies in my stomach and invite… and why am I shaking like I’m in Alaska.
What if @EvelynLozada is a runaway bride when I get out there and I’m stuck looking good all by myself… did I mention looking good?
I’m breathing like a pregnant lady in lamaze class right now… I was hoping continuing to tweet with y’all support would calm me down
Here we go…. Proverbs 18:22… I love you guys… If I do it right the 1st time I won’t have to do it again… Turn up…
He also announced earlier this year he would change his last name back to Johnson so his wife-to-be would not have to take Ochocinco – the spanish version of his number with the Cincinnati Bengals – as her last name.
The father-of-four legally changed his name to the number in 2008.
Again on Twitter, Ochocinco posted a picture of himself with a fan, Cheryl Minton, who was warmly invited to the wedding after she wrote the star to tell him she had recently lost her husband of 30 years.
‘Turn Up Ms. Cheryl, bring ya smile, dancing shoes and appetite… let me know when you receive confirmation… Turn up…’ he wrote in a message to the widow.
Congratulations to Chad & Evelyn!!
