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.
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.
Prenup For What? The Real Reason Prince Harry Doesn’t Need Meghan Markle To Sign On The Dotted Line
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are keeping the fairytale alive by forgoing a prenup … but this might not be as romantic as it sounds.
According to a source, Harry believes his marriage to Meghan will last forever and there’s no reason to safeguard his £30 million fortune. “There was never any question in Harry’s mind that he would sign a prenup,” one of his “friends” told DailyMail. “He’s determined that his marriage will be a lasting one, so there’s no need for him to sign anything.”
Awww, that’s beautiful … but the gag is, even if Markle signed a prenup it wouldn’t mean much. Unfortunately, prenups are not legally enforceable in the UK. However, they are increasingly taken into account during divorce cases, so at least there’s that.
Also, Prince Harry isn’t the first to take this route. His big brother Prince William made the same move when he married Kate Middleton. In addition, their mother, Princess Diana, didn’t have a prenup either. Consequently, she had to fight tooth and nail to get her £17 million settlement when she divorced Prince Charles.
Hopefully, the royal couple’s union will be one that last a lifetime. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to wed on May 19th at Windsor Castle in England.
