Adrienne Bailon has become Israel Houghton’s loving stepmother.
After divorcing his ex-wife Meleasa Houghton in February 2016, gospel musician Israel Houghton married Adrienne Bailon, a well-known singer and television broadcaster.
Adrienne married Israel the following year and is the stepmother of her husband’s children from a previous relationship. The YouTube content producer has freely acknowledged her warm relationship with her stepchildren on social media, where she candidly speaks about her life.
Israel is the father of four children
Israel married Meleasa Houghton, his first wife [now ex-wife], in 1994, according to his IMDb page. Sonny, Mariah, and Lillie were born to the couple during their marriage, which lasted until February 22, 2016.
Sonny Houghton, their son, is a singer, songwriter, and music producer. He also works as the director of marketing for Beat Bank, a platform for music production, mixing, and mastering.
Lillie Houghton, Sonny’s daughter, works at Beat Bank as a content director. Mariah Houghton, on the other hand, is a model and an all-around creative person, as evidenced by her Instagram account.
Israel also has a son named Jordan Houghton, who he mentions on Instagram every now and again.
His ex-wife Meleasa, on the other hand, is not Jordan’s biological mother. Meleasa has even mentioned in her Instagram bio that she is the mother of Mariah, Sonny, and Lillie.
Jordan could be Israel’s son from a prior relationship, which the gospel singer hasn’t addressed.
Jordan, on the other hand, appears to have close ties with his father and stepmother, since he promotes his father’s and Adrienne’s activities on Instagram.
Jordan is also a father
Jordan, Israel’s son, and his wife Le„aira Marie Houghton, welcomed a boy, Nova Houghton, on May 4, 2021.
Isreal also became a grandfather as a result of this. He even took to Instagram to announce the news and express his joy. “He’s just adorable. I’m already smitten, “‘He captioned the image,’ he said.
Jordan is a musician that was chosen as an American Idol participant in 2020.
Adrienne Is Up Front About Her Feelings About Israel’s Children
Adrienne isn’t afraid to share herself and her way of life with strangers. ‘All Things Adrienne,’ the name of her YouTube channel, relates to her willingness to share her life experiences with her audience, which she also acknowledges in her promo video.
Perhaps it is because of her enthusiasm to let people into her life that she is so well-adjusted with Israel’s children.
In a 2016 interview with Latina magazine, she discussed her relationship with Houghton’s children. Adrienne thought the kids were wonderful and thanked their parents for raising them properly.
“They are wonderful people and I just think they are phenomenal little human beings. They are so much fun and I think it’s just a testament to how their parents raise them.”
She went on to say that she felt like she would be a permanent part of the children’s lives.
“Honored. I believe that when you love someone, you love all of their parts and extensions “she continued. “Seeing small pieces of Dad in them, as well as how smart, wise, kind, and kind they are, is incredible.”
On fact, in a May 2017 part of The Real Daytime, the television personality revealed that her stepchildren don’t refer to her as a stepmom, but rather as ‘Light Mom,’ to honor their ‘lit’ relationship.
One of the Daughters has a special bond with her
Adrienne appears to be the most connected to Israel’s daughter Mariah of all the children. As has been remarked on numerous times, the mother-daughter combo has amazing chemistry.
On August 31, 2020, Mariah’s 24th birthday, the diva took to Instagram to wish her a happy birthday.
“My favorite person to be EXTRA with is 24 today!” read the caption. Lol. These photos are 100% US… ALWAYS! ‚ I’m smitten with you! “Let the games begin!”
Mariah has even appeared on the YouTube channel of her stepmother. Adrienne posted a video on her YouTube channel titled ‘Meet My Sister… I Mean, Stepdaughter!’ on February 25, 2020, in which the 37-year-old stepmom stated that they will discuss “all things Mariah” that day.
Both women stated in the video that they despise the terms “stepdaughter” and “stepmother.” They also discussed how they are the same height, shoe size, and clothes size, as well as the public’s bewilderment, since many people believe they are sisters.
Because they are only roughly 13 years apart in age, the misconception is understandable.
