Adrienne Bailon and her boyfriend of just a few months, Israel Houghton, are engaged!
Bailon confirmed the news on Instagram late Friday night with a video of her stunning ring perfectly held in front of a lit up Eiffel Tower. “You. Me. Out,” she captioned the image.
Shortly before showing off the reported colorless 8-carat emerald-cut diamond ring, The Real co-host posted a video of she and the famous gospel singer kissing in front of the tower.

Israel also shared some personal thoughts on Instagram, posting a lengthy message expressing his love for his bride-to-be.
“I have seen and felt the essence of Gods grace through the life, the kindness and the courage of this woman. I’ve seen her attacked, lied about, wrongfully accused, mocked, laughed at, and misunderstood. But, I’ve also seen the shining example of the eagle she is that rises above the cacophony of the noise of ignorants- I’m learning from her example,” he wrote.
The Grammy Award-winner added, “She loves Jesus. She loves her family. She loves people. Even the ones that don’t love her back. I pray God give me that same grace in my life. I’ve taken a giant leap of faith in asking her to share life with me forever and to give me a shot at getting it right this time… She has graciously granted my request… She said yes. Thanks Be To God. Thank you @adriennebailon for graciously loving me.”
Adrienne’s friends and co-hosts also took to social media to congratulate Bailon and Houghton on the big moment. The Real’s Loni Love wrote on Instagram: “Congratulations to @ihoughton and @adriennebailon on their engagement … I love you Munchkin. You are so full of love and light this is your moment so enjoy. You, Is, have become my brother. I now have some else to borrow money from… #love.”
Adrienne and Israel confirmed their relationship back in March after being spotted on vacation together. Their relationship revelation came just one month after Houghton not only announced he and then-wife of 2o years, Meleasa Houghton, were officially divorced, but that he was apologetic for being unfaithful during their marriage.
It’s worth noting that Adrienne will now officially be a mom to three teenagers — Israel’s kids from his previous marriage, Mariah, Israel and Milan.
