Chad Ochocinco Weds 'Basketball Wives' Star
July 05, 2012
Former Dancing with the Stars contestant Chad Ochocinco married Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada in a July 4 ceremony in Miami and offered a play-by-play of the wedding on Twitter.
Lozada's romance with the 34-year-old NFL football player has been documented on VH1's hit Basketball Wives and Wednesday's nuptials were filmed for the couple's upcoming new reality show on the cable channel called Ev and Ocho.
"Live tweeting from my wedding..." Ochocinco announced in his kickoff to constant updates of the ceremony on Twitter. "Should be a first I'm assuming, music is playing, can't see my guests right now but they're here."
Right before the vows, he tweeted about being a nervous groom. "I don't recall sending the butterflies in my stomach an invite ... and why am I shaking like I'm in Alaska." He added: "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?"
As the ceremony reached its most important moment, Ochocinco tweeted, "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." Hours after the ceremony he gave an update on the entire wedding party: "Small issue, I'm the only person that didn't/doesn't drink alcohol n every 1 is wasted including my WIFE, can't relate 2 this s--t, now what?"
