    It's a boy!

    Evelyn Lozada and her fiancé, Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford, welcomed a son on Saturday in Arizona.

    The bundle of joy was born at 3:55 a.m. and the couple's baby boy weighed in at 8 lbs. and measured 21 inches long, her rep confirms to E! News. It was a natural birth and the baseball player was by the reality star's side.

    "I'm ecstatic and I thank God for this blessing!" the proud mama gushed in a statement obtained by E! News. "He is so handsome and I can't wait to love all over my baby boy! My daughter Shaniece is so excited to be a big sister and Carl is elated! This has been the best day ever!"

    The Basketball Wives star showed off her baby bump for the first time in November, while vacationing with her grown daughter in Maui.

    The 38-year-old revealed to omg! INSIDER that Crawford is the father of her baby and shared that she's not against walking down the aisle again.

    "I definitely would get married again. I still believe in love…I'm not one of those people that's like ‘we need to get engaged, we need to get married.' No, absolutely not. I feel like that's going to come, just like with the baby, let it come. I'm not forcing anything, so if it happens, it happens," she said at the time.

    Crawford made it an unforgettable Christmas when he popped the question and asked Lozada to be his wife.

    "YES!" the bride-to-be appropriately captioned a stunning snapshot wearing her 14.5 carat emerald-shaped sparkler. The ring, which was designed by Jason of Beverly Hills, features a 10 carat emerald cut center stone and is valued at $1.4 million.

    Lozada was previously married to football player Chad Johnson and she ended her two-month marriage to Johnson in September 2012 after he allegedly got physical with her that August.

    Congrats to the new family!
