Appearing on Queens Court brought a new title for Evelyn Lozada — fiancée.

The Basketball Wives alum accepted a marriage proposal from Lavon Lewis after they met on the Peacock reality dating series, People reported Thursday.

Lewis, 42, proposed to Lozada, 47, in December as they celebrated her birthday at a small gathering in Los Angeles.

“I told her to pack her bags, we’re going somewhere. She was blindfolded until she got to the front door,” Lewis shared with the magazine. “She walked in to about 20 close friends and family and the big ‘marry me’ letters, roses on the ground, things like that.”

The reality star said she was completely surprised when the branding expert and marketing firm co-founder got down on one knee.

“I didn’t know that he was going to propose that day,” she shared. “I didn’t know what I was walking into. He was being very sneaky and, in all honesty, I was a little irritated because I’m such an alpha female and I’m kind of like, why do I have to pack? Why do I have to do this? It was really, really difficult for me to just let go and allow him to do his thing.”

Lozada was briefly married to NFL star Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson, and had previous relationships with athletes Antoine Walker and Carl Crawford. This time, everything is different.

“I’ve never experienced this energy,” she said. “In hindsight, it’s clear, I had the wrong person in my life.”

On Queens Court, which began streaming today, Lozada and singers Tamar Braxton and Nivea date 21 suitors in a quest to find a potential “king,” as previously reported.

Lozada confirmed sparks also flew on the show for Braxton, 45, and Nivea, 40.

“Sometimes as women, you think, ‘I’m 40, my life is over,'” Lozada said. “But just keep working at it. Never give up on love.”

Braxton is now said to be engaged to attorney Jeremy “JR” Robinson, a finalist on the series.

Holly Robinson Peete and husband Rodney Peete host the show’s 10 episodes.

Filmed in Atlanta, the series is produced by Will Packer Media and Lighthearted Entertainment. Executive producers include Will Packer, Kelly Smith, Jeff Spangler, Rob LaPlante, and Trifari Williams.
