Evelyn Lozada didn't just get ice for Christmas; she damn near got an entire glacier. 

First, we would like to congratulate Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford and his bride-to-be, Lozada, on their engagement. Fans following the reality star found out on Christmas Day when the 38-year-old posted a picture of the ring to Instagram with the caption, "Yes!"

Here is that photo featuring a not-small diamond: 

That thing is big enough to host the Winter Olympics. Only, we weren't quite sure how big that ring was at the time. 

As it turns out, when you're in the middle of a seven-year, $142 million contract, you can splurge a little when you decide to marry the mother of your child. 

TMZ reports the ring is a whopping 14.5 carats and worth $1.4 million, which should make some of you lucky gentlemen who became engaged over the holidays beam a little brighter knowing the cost of your own purchase could have been far more extreme. 

The star of Basketball Wives took time to speak with People Magazine and happily divulged how she was feeling: "I'm overjoyed and in complete and utter shock! ... What a different year and a half it has been – I'm truly happy!"

Earlier this month, Lozada spoke with OMG! Insider, divulging the father of her child due in March was none other than 32-year-old slugger Crawford.

At the time, she stated: 

I definitely would get married again. I still believe in love … I'm not one of those people that's like 'we need to get engaged, we need to get married.' No, absolutely not. 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.

True to her word, she is once again saying yes to marriage. 

As The Los Angeles Times' Nadine Saad reminds, Lozada was previously engaged to former NBA player Antoine Walker before marrying former NFL star Chad Johnson. That marriage was ultimately short-lived and featured Johnson's arrest for domestic violence

As Lozada touches upon with People Magazine, "What a different year and a half it has been." The time to look forward is here and that future looks very bright indeed. 

Although that may be the glitter from the diamond.
