Adrienne Bailon and fiancé, Grammy Award-winning gospel artist Israel Houghton, are totally on cloud nine.

Last month, Houghton proposed to his actress girlfriend of only a few months during a romantic getaway in Paris, and now, the lovebirds are dishing on exactly how it went down.

During the Season 3 debut episode of The Real, Adrienne sat alongside her talk show co-hosts with her soon-to-be hubby by her side and opened up about the life-changing moment. So … this is how it went down.

“I’m actually taking a shower and getting ready for the day in Paris … and all of a sudden I hear this knock on the door,” she said. The host and actress opened the door only to find her parents standing there, who jetted off to France themselves to celebrate their own wedding anniversary.

Later the week, the foursome went out for dinner on a yacht and that also became the night Bailon said, “I do.”


Israel explained, “I asked the captain, because the lights sparkle on the Eiffel Tower every hour for five minutes. Toward the end of that, [I told the captain] make sure we are right by the tower. She was looking out the window. I said, ‘Turn around.’ I gave her a bunch of these white roses.”


Adrienne recalled, “I throw it and he was on his knee … I don’t know why—when he got down on his knee … I literally looked at you and got down with you. So we both end up on our knees and then he proposed to me and then I was like, ‘I’m on the floor. I might as well ask you to marry me, too.'”

This will be the first marriage for Adrienne and second for Houghton.


Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves



To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
