Adrienne Bailon Houghton Opens Up About Fertility Struggle



Adrienne Bailon and hubby Israel Houghton have been married for almost 2 years and would love nothing more than to start a family together — unfortunately, it just hasn’t worked out that way.

“Everybody doesn’t get pregnant right away,” Adrienne revealed on Tuesday’s episode of “The Real.” “I think for myself, I thought it would happen so easily for me. It just hasn’t happened that way.”

The co-host said she decided to open up about her struggle due to the incessant rumors about her being pregnant. “I think people are really insensitive to that .. I know you guys (referring to the audience) are like ‘Is she pregnant?’, ‘her face is fuller’, FYI I’ve always had a really chubby face — but I think that as an audience we should be sensitive to the fact that everybody doesn’t get pregnant right away,” Mrs. Houghton stated passionately.

Thankfully, Adrienne who married her gospel singing hubby in November of 2016, has faith that it will eventually happen. “I have had to come to peace that it will happen when it’s God’s timing and I believe in that and I have faith in all of that,” she said. “But, it can be really discouraging and it can be really frustrating.”

And that frustration comes form things that are out of her control:

“I think I looked at myself and in my mind I was like, ‘I’m a Cheetah Girl. I’m 19 years old.’ I woke up and was like, ‘Actually I’m going to be 35 in a few weeks. That makes a big difference. I can feel as youthful as I want on the inside and in my heart, but my ovaries are what they are. That sucks to hear that.”

While Adrienne has yet to experience motherhood for herself, she is the step-mother to Houghton four children from his previous relationships.
