Evelyn Lozada and Chad Johnson- the wide receiver formerly known as Chad Ochocinco- officially tied the knot before family and friends on Wednesday, and shared some of their special day on social networking site Twitter.
The couple, who met on Twitter, were wed in an evening ceremony in Miami and the entire event was filmed for their upcoming reality TV show "Ev and Ocho," according to Us Magazine.
"Live tweeting from my wedding... should be a first I'm assuming, music is playing, can't see my guest right now but they're here... #nervous," Johnson tweeted to his 3 million followers.
"This is bull s---... I don't recall sending the butterflies in my stomach and invite... and why am I shaking like I'm in Alaska. #mandown," Johnson tweeted.
"Y'all still there? How many times is Eve gonna change outfits... Is this normal to have more than 1 outfit besides the wedding gown?" Johnson tweeted later in the evening.
Lozada, 37, took to Twitter the night before her big day to share her excitement with her 1 million followers.
"Goodnight tweeps!! Tomorrow I become a 'Johnson' #Goodnight," Lozada tweeted.
The newlyweds reportedly met in 2010, and months later, on November 16, 2010 Johnson, 34, proposed to the "Basketball Wives" star and presented her with a 10-carat diamond engagement ring.
Lozada immediately accepted his proposal, and Johnson announced that he would change his name from Ochocinco back to Johnson, his original last name, so that his future wife would have a more common last name.
Lozada, who has openly admitted to wanting to have more children with Johnson, recently spoke out about the nature of their relationship and why it works.
"Before we met, we communicated over the phone for a month. We got to know each other like that before seeing each other," Lozada told Us.
"We have a true friendship. And he can keep up with my mouth! I'm very verbal, and say what I think and feel. He's the same way. He makes me laugh," she added.
