Lozada, who was married to former NFL superstar Chad Ochocinco for a brief period of time, confirmed the news via her Instagram account, uploading this picture with the caption, “Yes!”:

While Crawford could catch grief for being engaged to a reality star, Kemp came under fire when it was reported he and reality star, Khloe Kardashian are dating.

In 2010, Kemp dated pop-star Rihanna and had one of the worst seasons of his career and Dodger fans feared he’d fall into that same pattern with Kardashian. Asked several times in the past few weeks, the 29-year-old outfielder maintains he and Kardashian are “just friends”.

Crawford and Lozada are expecting a child shortly and it’s unknown when they’ll tie the knot. The Dodgers can only hope his production on the field won’t drop off in 2014.
