Fans of daytime panel talk show The Real may know that co-host Adrienne Bailon-Houghton has always expressed great interest in having children, one day.
Since the former girl group member married her now husband, Israel Houghton, she has spoken openly about her excitement in exploring motherhood but, most recently, she shared that the journey has not been the easiest.
While addressing criticisms from fans of her apparent weight fluctuations since The Real's 2013 debut, and touching on pregnancy rumors as a result of them, Adrienne shared that she and her husband have been struggling to conceive.
"I know you guys are like, 'Is she pregnant? Her face is fuller!' FYI, I've always had a chubby face," she said. "And as I told the audience yesterday, I had McGriddles and things to eat yesterday, but I think you should be sensitive to that. Everybody doesn't get pregnant right away — and I think for myself, I thought it would happen easily for me."
After adding that she's had to come to terms with the fact that she cannot get pregnant as easily as she once thought she could, she shared, "I have faith and all that, but it can be really discouraging, and can be really frustrating."
Recalling her mindset as a young women, she added, "I think I looked at myself and in my mind I was like, 'I'm a Cheetah Girl. I'm 19 years old.' And then I looked up and was like, 'Actually, I'm gonna be 35 in a few weeks,' and that makes a big difference."
