Adrienne Bailon and Israel Houghton are officially man and wife.

The pair tied the knot over the weekend during a lavish ceremony at the Hotel Plaza Athénéel in Paris while in front of 70 of their closest friends and family members.

Bailon’s The Real co-hosts Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry-Housley were also there to witness the union between the actress and the Grammy Award winning gospel artist.

“I’m so glad we chose such an intimate group of who have shared in our journey and know our hearts and that I honestly feel comfortable crying in front of,” Bailon told People. “I didn’t want to invite people I felt I had to put on a performance for. I wanted every moment to be genuine and really special and that’s what it is going to be.”

She explained to the publication, “I genuinely just feel so blessed and grateful. I’ve honestly never been happier in my entire life,” Bailon tells PEOPLE. “I’ve never felt what I feel right now. I can’t even describe what it is, but it’s such a peace mixed with total excitement.”

The night before the pair said “I do,” the wedding party dined at Ferdi, the same place where the lovebirds met. Adrienne and Israel started dating earlier this year after four years of a great friendship.

The beauty has been relatively quiet about her vow exchange, she did however, share a cryptic photo of the venue where she and Houghton were named husband and wife. “Where all the magic happened,” she wrote, sharing a snapshot of a chandelier.

On Sunday, Bailon shared a stunning image of her and her groom posing in front of the Eiffel Tower. “Happily Ever… Houghton,” she wrote. / People

This is the first marriage for Bailon, who in September 2015, broke off her previous engagement to Roc Nation executive, Lenny Santiago. Houghton was famously married to his wife of 2o years, Meleasa Houghton, before he “failed and sinned in my marriage.”

Houghton and Meleasa have three children: Mariah, Israel and Milan … which are now children to Adrienne.


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.
