Chad Ochocinco, Crystal Bates


Chad Johnson is expanding his family yet again!

The former NFL superstar known to many fans as Chad Ochocinco is expecting his fifth child.

"I literally crushed my #WCW so much I created a new #WCW," he tweeted Wednesday afternoon with a sonogram featuring his future family member (and referring, of course, to "woman crush Wednesday" with his hashtag).

So who is the special lady in Johnson's life that is pregnant? Reports point to Crystal Bates, who has been dating the former reality star for close to a year now. She also took to Instagram to share details about her latest doctor's appointment.

 "I watched her play around, hide her lil [face] but the highlight of my day was watching her trying to find her mouth to such her thumb," she wrote on Instagram with another sonogram picture. "She didn't give up until she found out."

She added, "My perfect lil angel. #PicturePerfect."

For those who didn't follow Johnson's football career, you may recognize the athlete from his VH1 reality show Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch. He also was in a public relationship with Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada where he decided to tattoo an image of his wife's face on his leg before getting a divorce. Yikes!

Fast-forward to today and Johnson appears happy and in love with his new leading lady who shared several pictures of the two together on Instagram.

Whether traveling to the Bahamas together or snapping selfies together while driving, these two look like the real deal and ready to start a family. 

"I'm in love already," Bates shared on Twitter. "Can't wait to meet my lil angel..."
