Trending: Chad Ochocinco marries Evelyn
Listening to Lena Horne song "Stormy Weather" on repeat... one of my favorite songs and movies... nobody is up yet including Eve... smh— Chad Johnson (@ochocinco) July 5, 2012
Ochocinco married Evelyn Lozada Wednesday, as his new avatar notes (see rings), and much of the day was carried live to his 3,571,000-plus Twitter followers. During the day, he tweeted he was “breathing like a pregnant lady in lamaze class right now... I was hoping continuing to tweet with y'all support would calm me down.” Getting married might be the most explosive way to spend July 4:
@ochocinco congrats on getting married...dont let the newly wed thing be a distraction...I got this being your year— Blair Williams (@FrshPrinceBlAir) July 5, 2012
Among those who probably had a bit of a headache Thursday was the bride herself. Ochocinco, who does not drink alcohol, is never one to avoid the "Too Much Information Department:"
She got Jack Ass the movie wasted, she won't respond RT @RatchetNerd: um get off Twitter and go back to your wife!!!! Congrats too!!!!— Chad Johnson (@ochocinco) July 5, 2012
Getting married might be the most explosive way to spend July 4, as an earthquake from nearby Antiqua rattled the nearby Caribbean island of St. Martin, where the nuptials took place:
During the big event, Lozada, 36, changed her outfit at least four times, according to the Twitter accounts, and that left Ochocinco, 34, a bit confused:
Y'all still there? How many times is Eve gonna change outfits... Is this normal to have more than 1 outfit besides the wedding gown?— Chad Johnson (@ochocinco) July 5, 2012
Among the guests was Franklin, Ohio widow Cheryl Minton, 66, who came to the wedding at Ochocinco's invite and expense after she tweeted him on Tuesday about the recent loss of her husband:
From Chad Ochocinco on Lockerz.
The ceremony was filmed "Ev and Ocho," which will air on VH1 beginning in September. From all accounts, it went smoothly. The couple received congratulations from Deion Branch, Ochocinco's former teammate in New England, Royce Reed, Lozada's former rival on "Basketball Wives," and many others. The cited scripture below reads: "Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the Lord."
Here we go.... Proverbs 18:22... I love you guys... If I do it right the 1st time I won't have to do it again... Turn up...— Chad Johnson (@ochocinco) July 4, 2012
As far as the honeymoon, Ochocinco tweeted it will be short. He made another vow of sorts in this tweet to long-time coach Charlie Collins:
If you see any offbeat and fresh newsy links from your favorite sports site that might be of interest to others, pass them along to me @billsperos or firstname.lastname@example.org.
I got my wife now it's time to get my game back... @CoachC_C turn up I'm on the way to LA... football season is the honeymoon...— Chad Johnson (@ochocinco) July 4, 2012
