Chad Ochocinco and Fiancé reveal Engagement Rind and Proposal Story

Although he may have been billed as the ultimate catch by VH1 for his reality show, it seems that Chad Ochocinco is officially off the market. The Cincinnati Bengals Wide Receiver has proposed to his model girlfriend, Evelyn Lozada, who sat down with Us Weekly to talk about his surprise proposal.

The NFL star proposed on November 16th at his home in Cincinnati, but the pair wasn’t exactly alone for the big moment. Ochocinco, according to Lozada’s interview, had a jeweler come to the house with a selection of engagement rings for her to choose from. But just because he didn’t choose the ring himself, doesn’t mean he didn’t have some input, according to Lozada he definitely had a say.

The couple eventually settled, although settle may be the wrong choice of words, on a 10 carat, Round cut diamond engagement ring, with surrounding pave’ set diamonds. What makes ring truly unique thought is the band, split into three parts, the middle band splits just under the center diamond.

But don’t look for the pair to exchange wedding rings just yet, as the couple would like to have their respective schedules slow down first. Ochocinco currently spends most of his time on the football field, and Lozada is gearing up for the next season of “Basketball Wives,” a reality show on which she stars.

“We're waiting on the show and football season to end so we can start focusing on the next stage of our lives,” Lozada told the magazine.

Lozada first came on the reality scene due to her time with basketball player Antoine Walker, but ultimately fell for Ochocinco’s interesting depth and great sense of humor, she told Us.

But it was communication that played a an important part in building the foundation of their relationship, according to Lozada who told the magazine that the two spoke over the phone for a month before meeting in person. But there is a little extra something that makes them the perfect match.

“And he can keep up with my mouth! I'm very verbal, and say what I think and feel,” Lozada told Us. “He's the same way. He makes me laugh."
