Congrats are in order for former “The Real” co-host Adrienne Bailon and gospel singer Israel Houghton! The couple announced Tuesday that they welcomed baby Ever James Houghton via surrogate.
“Our baby boy is here & we are so in love! 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 9 months,” the couple said in a joint Instagram post.
“He is worth every tear, every disappointment, every delayed prayer, every IVF cycle, every miscarriage. Everything. All we feel is joy and overwhelming love & gratitude. Grateful to God, to our angel surrogate and to all of our friends and family who have stood with us for over 5 years on this journey. He’s here and we have never been happier to lose sleep!”
Adrienne and Israel married in 2016. Baby Ever is their first child together.
Israel has four children from a previous relationship — daughters Mariah and Lillie and sons Jordan and Sonny.
