The Basketball Wives star (who reportedly quit the show) is in her last trimester and reveals that she wants to eat sweets nonstop! "I'm not much for eating sugar, but being pregnant has turned me into a sort of junk food addict! For example, I crave Laffy Taffy," Evelyn tells Mamas Latinas. "Seriously, I can't stop eating this stuff!"
Prior to being pregnant Evelyn rarely indulged in junk food. "I'm a pescatarian and a very healthy eater, so this is super weird for me. Recently, I found myself eating Nerds and I haven't had those in years!"

Among other sweets Evelyn is craving: root beer! "Who knew root beer would be my go-to drink during this pregnancy? (Oh, but don't get me started on my burping crisis, ha!)." And she also "loves" waffle fries. Girl – stop, you'll turn into Kim Kardashian! I kid, I kid… Evelyn looks phenomenal.
Evelyn swears she's been trying to find a balance and still incorporate healthy items into her diet. "While I definitely have a sweet tooth, I've also made it a point to balance the sweets I'm eating with healthy stuff, like salads, salmon and my favorite: avocado!"
Outside of all her food issues, which Evelyn says aren't "that weird" she's worrying about what's changed since last time she had a baby. "Last time I gave birth was over 20 years ago with my daughter Shaniece," Evelyn exclaims. "There are so many things I have to learn (or re-learn) before my blessing is born."
Like breast feeding. "Twenty years ago, breastfeeding wasn't the thing to do," Evelyn recounts. "Now I'm getting all of this advice about breastfeeding and how to do it and breast pumps! Still, to be totally honest, I'm not sure that I want to go the breastfeeding route this time around." Well, if she wants to drop all those root beer and Laffy Taffy pounds she probably should breast feed!
Feeling like a "first-time mom again" Evelyn is embracing all that has changed. "This really represents a new beginning to me and as a more mature mother I plan to do a host of new things with my second child."
