The Real star Adrienne Bailon has fulfilled her wish: happiness that will give her an edge even in front of the cameras.
“Grateful to God, to our surrogate angel, and to all our friends and family who have been with us for over five years on this journey”: with these words, on August 16, 2022, Adrienne Bailon announced to the World the birth of minor Ever James.
The result of her love unites her with her husband, Israel Houghton, and a great deal of courage, will, and faith.
From that day on, a new life began for the American volcanic artist. She has put her career on hold to devote herself totally to her family, but her fans don’t worry about her: she will return to the scene more charged than ever.
Happier than ever. Meanwhile, let’s retrace her story.
Adrienne Eliza Bailon was born in Manhattan, New York, on October 24, 1983. Her mother is Puerto Rican; her father is Ecuadorian.
You have an older sister, Claudette. Since childhood, she has nurtured a passion for show and singing.
In 1999 Ricky Martin enlisted her, along with three other girls, in the choir for the show staged at Madison Square Garden: that was her debut.
The following year, he founded the 3LW group with Kiely Williams and Naturi Naughton, coinciding with the first album’s recording.
A short time later, she made her debut as an actress, starring in the TV series Raven: her role as Alana.
In 2033 she played Chanel in the Disney musical comedy A Song for the Cheetah Girls; also in the cast Kiely Williams, aka Aqua.
In the wake of the success of the TV film in question, the album Cheetah-Licious Christmas was released in 2005, also promoted through a tour that was also very popular.
In 2006 and 2008, the sequels were released, respectively Cheetah Girls 2 and The Cheetah Girls: One World.
Accompanied by two other albums and a series of concerts across America.
Even if for a not-long period, which ended in 2008 with the group’s dissolution, the Cheetah Girls were a natural phenomenon.
But Adrienne had the foresight to cultivate, in the meantime, also an individual artistic path.
During her relationship with Rob Kardashian, she starred in the reality show Keeping Up With the Kardashians (2008-2011); later, she took part in the other two reality shows, Kourtney And Kim Take New York and Empire Girls: Julissa and Adrienne, but also in an episode of the TV series Zack and Cody at the Grand Hotel and in the TV particular Studio DC: Almost Live, as a guest star.
She appeared in the video for Pitbull’s song Give me everything, along with Ne-Yo. In 2012 she landed the central part in the film “The Coalition” and the musical Elixir.
2013 was a pivotal year for Adrienne Bailon‘s career. She has marked her entry into the cast of the talk show “The Real“.
Adrienne Bailon is the co-host; her first traveling companions were Tamar Braxton, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai, and Tamera Mowry.
In 2016 Tamar Braxton left the team, and Amanda Seales took over, albeit gradually. But in 2021, she left due to differences of opinion with the authors.
In the same year, the farewell of Mowry also arrived, replaced by the actress Garcelle Beauvais.
On the other hand, Adrienne Bailon has always remained firmly in her place and has won over numerous viewers.
Who loves her spontaneity, energy, and genuine passion for this job. The Real has far exceeded the 1,000-episode mark.
Even in this case, however, the volcanic Adrienne has accepted other challenges simultaneously.
Like that of the Masked Singer, 2019 edition, in which she played Flamingo.
Or, like the release of her first solo album (in 2017), the launch of a jewelry line and a collection of vegan bags, and her cameo in the Being Mary Jane series.
Marriage of Adrienne Bailon to Israel Houghton
Adrienne Bailon and Rob Kardashian were together from 2007 to 2009, ending due to his betrayal.
That same year she began the relationship with the photographer and music producer Lenny Santiago; the official confirmation came only in February 2015.
And it did not bring luck, since seven months after the engagement was canceled.
But Adrienne recovers quickly; she doesn’t let her disappointments in love break her down.
Thus, in February 2016, she began dating musician Israel Houghton, and their wedding was celebrated in Paris the following August. In love, yesterday as today.
The arrival of little Ever James
Adrienne Bailon‘s husband has four children born from the previous one, and she has managed to build an excellent relationship with all of them.
But, at the same time, she strongly desired a son who was the seal of love that bound her to Israel. Fate, however, has gone into another temptation. Making numerous attempts in vain.
In 2018, right in the studios of “The Real“, Adrienne Bailon publicly addressed the topic.
Adrienne Bailon revealed the difficulties in getting pregnant and pointed out the numbness of certain people, such as the discomfort caused by the cyclical rumors of her alleged pregnancy.
Precisely to avoid specific pressures, she and Israel have hidden the path that started with a surrogate mother.
Until August 16, 2022, Adrienne Bailon‘s post appeared on Instagram: “Ever James. For this child, we prayed. To hear our baby cry, skin to skin, face to face, heart to heart, and eyes to eyes. Our baby is here, and we are so in love!”
“If you have followed our love story – he added – you know that our journey towards him was very demanding. We have prayed silently as we have kept this magnificent secret for the past nine months. Every tear, every disappointment, every prayer, every IVF cycle, and every miscarriage is worth it. Everything. What we feel now are overwhelming joy and love and gratitude. Thankful to God, our surrogate angel, and all of our friends and family who have been with us for over five years on this journey.”
A new life has come, and a new life has begun for Adrienne, Israel, and little Ever James.
