Adrienne Bailon-Houghton recently shared why she kept her pregnancy a secret and shared more about her pregnancy journey.

Adrienne and her husband had a baby via surrogacy and talked about her struggles with getting pregnant.

She said, “Honestly, everyone was shocked.”

She continued, “Even my sister, who watched The Real throughout the whole last season literally said to me, ‘Adrienne, I am impressed.’ She’s like, ‘I am so proud of you. You are really holding this.’ I did that because it was really sacred to me.”

She added, “It was important to me for my own mental well-being and for my family. I was just like, ‘I’m just not going to say anything.’ It was actually very peaceful that way. You didn’t have other people’s opinions.”

Bailon continued, “That’s the ultimate dream for me. I’m not giving up on that dream. Maybe I will carry one day, and I can’t wait for that. I’m still hoping for that.”
