Evelyn Lozada of “Basketball Wives” answered a fan's curious question about her plans for more kids after becoming 40.


The famous reality star held a Q & A session on Instagram with her fans. When one asked if she would like to have any more kids now that she is over 40, she promptly replied: “No!”


Lozada has a full history when it comes to her love life and, as dedicated as she is to her booming career, is also a known devoted family woman. Although already a mother of two, the stunning entertainer was always known to long for more children.

That has, however, not been an easy feat for the Puerto Rican beauty whose battles with infertility is no secret from the media. That was probably a reason why that fan questioned her status on “having more kids” when she is over forty now.


Her sharp response is, however, surprising considering how well most people know the star has always loved children. While speaking in an interview with Latina Magazine back in 2016, Lozada had said:

“I would love to have another child. Obviously, I’m 40, so you know your body changes so quickly, and I’m just trying to figure it out. But yes, I’m definitely open to having another child, god willing.”

Even back then, she had a daughter in her twenties, Shaniece Hairston, and a little son, Carl Crawford Jr., who was the sole product of her relationship with Carl Crawford. The children have a huge age gap of about twenty years evidencing Lozada’s struggles with infertility. 


Now that she has updated everyone about her status quo when it comes to having more kids, Lozada has netizens wondering if she'll get back in the dating game. Lozada, ever the doting mother is, however, cautious when it comes to dating again.

While her eldest child may be exempted from critical emotional influences if her mama finds a new man, her little boy is not. The popular TV personality disclosed that she is very selective of who she lets around her five-year-old son. She exclaimed:

“If I’m introducing a man to my son, that means we’re in a serious relationship!”

Unlike what she may look like, the exotic beauty is a certified mama bear, and her protectiveness is not limited to Carl Jr. Just last month, Lozada stepped in when famous rapper Slim Thug, who is known for his “ways” with women, made lovey-dovey eyes commenting on a sexy photo of her 25-year-old daughter.


Lozada’s response with “watchful eyes” emoticon and the words, “let her be great!” had fans cracking up and lauding her protective measures. 

Lozada is set to make a return to your TV screen with the debut of the new season of “Basketball Wives” on June 19. Don't miss it.
