“Surprisingly, I found out when I had my first trimester screening. I was about 13 weeks when they told me the sex! I was honestly praying for a boy,” she told People. “I have wanted to have a son for years.”
Evelyn says her 20-year-old daughter, Shaneice, is excited to become a big sister.
“We were both so happy. There are all girls on my side, so this will be our first boy. My family is over the moon. Every time I go to the doctor, I have them check to make sure it’s a boy,” she said.
“I’m still in disbelief! Shaniece is just happy that she can still be the princess of the family. Her brother is already her BFF in her head.”
Now, Evelyn has her sights set on a big budget baby shower for her bundle of joy. Hosted by Shaneice, Shaunie O’Neal and Teresa Caldwell, the bash’s theme is “Diapers & Diamonds” and is sure to draw lots of lavish gifts for the little one.
