She may be a "Basketball Wife," but the father of Evelyn Lozada's fetus is a pro BASEBALL player ... a very wealthy (naturally) pro baseball player.
TMZ Sports has confirmed the soon-to-be baby daddy is L.A. Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford -- he's 32 years old, he's a 4-time All-Star ... and in 2010 he signed a $142 MILLION contract.
Sources close to the couple tell us the VH1 reality star has been dating Carl for the better part of a year now and it's getting serious (no kidding).
As we reported, Lozada's pregnancy wasn't accidental -- she and Crawford planned to have the child together.
Lozada clearly has a taste for ballers -- before her current MLB star, she was married to NFL Star Chad Johnson ... and before Johnson, she was engaged to NBA star Antoine Walker.
In other words, Lozada has now officially conquered players in every major sport in the United States.
NHL ... you've been warned.
