Adrienne Bailon and Israel Houghton Welcomed Their First Baby via Surrogacy

It was a surrogate that helped Adrienne Bailon and her husband Israel Houghton start their family. On Tuesday, the 38-year-old mom and former co-host of “The Real” posted a black-and-white portrait of her son Ever on Instagram.

“Our baby boy is here & we are so in love!” the “Cheetah Girls” star gushed. “If you have followed our love story … you know that our journey to baby has been very challenging. But God is true to His word and His promises.”

“We have quietly prayed while sitting on this most magnificent secret for the last nine months,” the new mom proceeded. “He is worth every tear, every disappointment, every delayed prayer, every IVF cycle, every miscarriage. Everything.”

Having thanked their “angel surrogate,” Bailon declared, “We have never been happier to lose sleep!” The adorable photo shows the former Disney Channel star holding her newborn boy close to her skin as Houghton, 51, looks on dotingly.

The composer already had four children, Mariah, Jordan, Milan, and Israel, from prior relationships when he and his now-wife wed in Paris in November 2016. Mariah referred to Bailon as the “perfect” complement to their family dynamic in a March 2020 YouTube video.

Bailon opened up to the “Real” audience about her experiences trying to conceive a child with Mariah’s father and the Daytime Emmy winner.

“It can be really discouraging and it can be really frustrating,” the “Masked Singer” alum spoke at a 2020 episode. “My wish for next year would be to start a family. That would be my biggest dream come true. I’ve always said I want to be a mom.”

In an interview two years ago, Bailon described herself as “either resilient or wildly delusional.”

She told the media source, “I tell myself, it’s not a question of will I be a mother, it’s a question of when.” “And I promised myself that I’m sticking to it [and] that it will happen.” Stay tuned with us only on Lee Daily
