Adrienne Bailon And Israel Houghton Welcome Their First Child Via Surrogate!

The proud parents shared the news via Instagram.

Adrienne Bailon and her husband, Israel Houghton, welcomed their first child together via surrogate. The proud parents shared the news via Instagram with a lovely photo cuddling their newborn son, Ever James. 

“Our baby boy is here & we are so in love!” the former “The Real” co-host 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 continued. “He is worth every tear, every disappointment, every delayed prayer, every IVF cycle, every miscarriage. Everything.” The couple thanked their "angel surrogate" for their beautiful blessing.

The lovely couple wed in Paris back in 2016, and have been vocal about trying to have a baby since. Houghton has four children from previous relationships — Mariah, Jordan, Milan, and Israel.
