'Basketball Wives' ' Evelyn Lozada, Chad Ochocinco wed

One "Basketball Wives" star is now officially a wife in real life.

Evelyn Lozada and football star Chad Ochocinco, whose romance has been chronicled on the VH1 reality show, tied the knot on July 4.

If you follow Ochocinco on Twitter, you got a tweeted play-by-play of the festivities on Wednesday, as he quipped, "I'm breathing like a pregnant lady in lamaze class right now... I was hoping continuing to tweet with y'all support would calm me down."

Thankfully he seemed to make it through the ceremony just fine, as he was calm enough to later joke about his new bride's four outfit changes.

"I got my wife now it's time to get my game back," he posted before asking his 3.5 million Twitter followers, "Is this normal to have more than 1 outfit besides the wedding gown?"

Lozada, by contrast, was quiet on her own highly followed Twitter account, but she's told Us Weekly that she's excited to make a home with Ochocinco.

"Before we met, we communicated over the phone for a month," she said, adding that's how they got to know one another. "We have a true friendship ... I'm very verbal, and say what I think and feel. He's the same way. He makes me laugh."

Lozada and Ochocinco got engaged in November 2010, and will show their journey to newlywed bliss on a spinoff reality show, "Ev and Ocho," which is expected to arrive on VH1 in September.

      On second thought, don't go the website. Your time would be better spent checking out p0rn sites or playing internet poker instead of this whacked out cult.
