The father of Evelyn Lozada‘s baby is Carl Crawford of the Los Angeles Dodgers, PEOPLE has learned.

The identity was revealed during an interview with omg! Insider, although the Basketball Wives reality star’s rep tells PEOPLE, “she did not verbally confirm that he is the father.”

Lozada says she is due in late March.

Although she didn’t directly confirm that she’s dating Crawford, an outfielder for the team, Lozada, 37, is looking forward to a fresh start.

“I definitely would get married again. I still believe in love,” she says.

“I’m not one of those people that’s like, ‘We need to get engaged, we need to get married.’ No, absolutely not.”

According to the mom-to-be, time will tell. “I feel like that’s going to come, just like with the baby — let it come. I’m not forcing anything so if it happens, it happens.”

Lozada, who is already mom to Shaniece, 20, confirmed her pregnancy to PEOPLE in November.

“I’m excited about being a mommy all over again,” she said. “This is something I’ve been wanting for years and I can’t believe it’s finally happening.”
