Actress and talk show host Adrienne Bailon opened up about her family life on yesterday’s episode of The Real after co-host Loni Love asked her about her process to expand her family with husband Isreal Houghton.
Bailon didn’t hesitate to answer the question as she responded by saying, “Everybody doesn’t get pregnant right away. I think for myself, I thought it would happen so easily for me. It just hasn’t happened that way.”
As Adrienne continued to address the audience and her co-hosts, she said, “I have had to come to peace with [the fact] that it will happen when it’s God’s timing and I believe in that and I have faith in all of that, but it can be really discouraging and it can be really frustrating.”
The talk show host says she came to the realization that she isn’t a 19-year-old Cheetah Girl anymore, and accepts that this is the way things happen sometimes.
“I think I looked at myself, and in my mind I’m like, ‘I’m a Cheetah Girl. I’m 19 years old,’ and then I woke up and it’s like, ‘Actually, you’re gonna be 35 in a few weeks. That makes a big difference. I can feel as youthful as I want inside and in my heart, but my ovaries are what they are.”
