After months of anticipation, two reality T.V. stars are hushing the speculations of doubters and detractors, and are now officially joined in holy matrimony. Chad Ochocinco and his ballsy, no-holds barred wife Evelyn Lozada, wed in Miami yesterday as a gaggle of family, friends and celebrities looked on. The event which will be played out on their forthcoming reality show ‘Eve & Ocho,’ was the culmination of a two-year courtship that began on Twitter.com. With that in mind, it should come as no surprise that the social network was incorporated into the ceremony via Ochocinco who ‘live tweeted’ the entire event. “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,” wrote the groom-to-be to his over 3 million followers. “I breathing like a pregnant lady in lamaze class right now… I was hoping continuing to tweet with y’all support would calm me down.” He later added that his wife changed outfits four times while he remained “stuck in his damn tux.”
Since the wedding will be televised this fall, pictures and further details are skimpy. Ochocinco did however share a picture of the couple’s rings. Lozada later changed her profile picture to a pre-wedding photo.
Before yesterday’s ceremony, Lozada admitted that the secret to her bond with the NFL player is their “true friendship,” one that keeps her filled with laughter. “We have a true friendship. And he can keep up with my mouth!,” said Lozada. “I’m very verbal, and say what I think and feel. He’s the same way. He makes me laugh.”
Prior to yesterday’s 4th of July wedding, Lozada posed in four possible wedding gowns for Life & Style magazine. No word on which dress she picked.
The Ochocincos will share their wedding this September on “Eve & Ocho.” -danielle canada
