Congratulations are in order for reality star and entrepreneur Evelyn Lozada.
The former Basketball Wives star, is engaged to Lavon Lewis, who she met on Peacock’s Queens Court.

According to PEOPLE Lewis, popped the question on Lozada’s birthday in December at a small gathering with friends and family in Los Angeles.
“The thing about Evelyn is, it is very hard to surprise her,” the marketing firm cofounder tells PEOPLE. “I told her to pack her bags, we’re going somewhere. She was blindfolded until she got to the front door. She walked in to about 20 close friends and family and the big ‘marry me’ letters, roses on the ground, things like that.”
The proposal also featured a custom cake with butterflies; one side said “Happy Birthday,” while the other read, “She said, ‘Yes.'”
The news comes just days before Lozada and singers Tamar Braxton and Nivea’s new dating show premieres on Peacock. On the show, hosted by power couple Holly Robinson and Rodney Peete, the trio dated a group of 21 men who could be their potential kings.
Lozada told HipHollywood that she signed up for the show because she had been single for a couple of years and it was just the right time.
Lozada met Lewis on the second episode and, while their connection grew over the course of the show, the reality star worried that the physical distance between them (she lives in Los Angeles, he resides in Atlanta) could be an obstacle in their relationship.
Though Lozada and Lewis still live on separate coasts, she says “Lavon has been very proactive of making sure he gets on a plane to come visit.”
She also told the magazine that she is planning for a winter wedding.
“We know I’m not going to wear white,” she joked. “But I’m just now trying to figure out, ‘What is this going to look like? What am I going to wear?’ I have a bunch of things on Instagram saved.”
Lozada, who was briefly married to NFL player Chad “OchoCino” Johnson in 2012 expressed on Queens Court that she felt like she settled in past relationships — but that’s not her perspective when it comes to Lewis.
“I’ve never experienced this energy,” she tells PEOPLE. “In hindsight, it’s clear, I had the wrong person in my life.”
All episodes of Queens Court are streaming now on Peacock.
