The Real alum Adrienne Bailon Houghton recently welcomed her first child with husband Israel Houghton. Their baby boy, Ever James, was born via surrogacy. Appearing on Sherri, the pair discussed why they kept quiet about their surrogate pregnancy until their child was born.

I didn’t want anyone’s opinion. And I felt like if I could hold my peace in this sacred moment, that would be beautiful. And that hopefully I could share my story and bring someone hope, at some point but it had to be when I had hope. I couldn’t give where I didn’t have it. And it was hard.
But it was our thing, and that made it even that much more special.
