The “Basketball Wives” star, who gave birth to an 8-pound baby boy this weekend, named her son after fiancé Carl Crawford. According to People, the happy couple chose Carl Leo for their newborn and will call him by his middle name.
Ev’s rep explained the proud dad, who is a Leo, “wanted his son to have every aspect of him, including his birth sign.”
