The Real talk-show host, Adrienne Bailon, is dating Grammy Award-winning Christian music artist, Israel Houghton.
The former Cheetah Girl and frontman of Gospel group Israel & New Breed were spotted soaking up the sun on vacation together at Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa in Tulum, Mexico this week. “They normally hang out in group circles but over spring break decided to take a trip alone together for the first time,” a source told US Weekly.
Bailon, 32, and Houghton, 44, met in 2013 where Houghton produced her film I’m in Love With a Church Girl.
The new relationship came as a shock to many, as the new couple went public only a month after Houghton was divorced from his wife of more than 20 years. According to the Daily Mail, Houghton and his wife were separated for a long time before getting a divorce due to his infidelity.
Houghton took to Facebook to explain the couple’s current relationship status and said, “From a friendship, as two single adults we have very recently begun to explore a dating relationship.”
As we previously reported, Bailon was engaged to Lenny Santiago but called it off in 2015 after a six-year relationship.
TMZ has exclusive photos of the couple’s romantic getaway.
