The Real’s Adrienne Bailon Thought She Could Time Her 1st Pregnancy Around Show’s Production Schedule

The Real co-host Adrienne Bailon, a newlywed, shared how she tried to time her first pregnancy around her show’s production schedule so she wouldn’t miss an entire season while home with the baby after giving birth.

During a session of “Girl Talk” segment of the show this week, she gave a blow-by-blow of her very  unrealistic plan and how her friends and co-hosts helped her realize she was going about it all wrong.

“Ok. I want to have a baby. If I could get pregnant between this window, then I could give birth,” Bailon, who married Gospel singer and producer Israel Houghton in 2016, shared on the daily panel talk show. “That’s not how it works and it didn’t work out that way.”

She concluded that with the help and encouragement of her co-hosts, she learned to deliver it all up to the hands of a higher being.

“Now because you guys have made me feel so comfortable, and you guys are always contantly encouraging me” she continued while addressing fellow panelists Tamera Mowry-Housley, Jeanie Mai and Lonnie Love, who told her. “Girl, let God has his way and it’s gonna happen when it happens.”

She acknowledged that the stress could have hindered her success and it made her stop.

“It was so stressful,” she recalled giving up on trying altogether when the baby didn’t happen on the production timeline she had planned. “We even took some time off and were like, ‘aw man it didn’t work out the way I thought it would. Guess I’ll try again next year.”

Love assured her that the show isn’t going anywhere and neither is Bailon.

“I want my little munchkin to come, so you keep on,” Love egged the former Cheetah Girl. “Do it!”

That’s so nice and nurturing. I love these women!

‘The Real’s Loni Love Opens Up About The Miscarriage That Turned Her Off From Having Kids

On Tuesday, March 21st episode of the daytime panel talk show The Real co-host Loni Love opened up about previously suffering a miscarriage and being quite emotionally scarred form the experience.

During a segment on the show, Love says the entire ordeal convinced her to never have children (or even attempt) because  she never wanted to experience that feeling again.

“I finally went to the doctor and I was pregnant,” she opens up. “And Imma tell you something, your body goes through so much. And then at that time I started processing ‘cause then I had to start saving for the baby. I had to start doing all this… And I was like, ‘Oh my goodness, what am I going to do?’ Right? And then it was like the dude that I was with, he was excited, but I was still like really really nervous. But then, eventually you know that nature takes over, you like, ‘You know what, there’s nothing I can do. I’m just gonna have to have this baby and I’m just going to deal with it.’ And sure enough as soon as I was like okay with it, about eight weeks, I miscarried.”

It appears from the audible gasp, and shocked reaction of her co-hosts Jeannie Mai, Tamera Mowry-Housley and Adrienne Bailon, that they were clueless. Love later exclaims that’s the real reason she doesn’t have children.

‘The Real’s Adrienne Bailon on Becoming a Stepmom

The U.S. Census estimates about 50% of families are some form of stepfamily. The stepfamily has become the modern family.

Today on the FOX daytime panel talk show, The REAL, during its “Girl Talk” segment, co-host Adrienne Bailon discussed becoming a stepmom to her fiancé Israel Houghton’s four children.

During the segment, Hougton (who is visiting but is shown off set to the side), shares what the kids call Adrienne (“A”)  and Jeannie Mai asks what the couple would prefer the kids call here.

“If someone were to say, ‘Who is she?’ What do they say?” Bailon asks Hougton who responds, “They would probably say, ‘My dad’s wife.’  Right, something like that?”

Adrienne disagrees with Loni Love‘s suggestion that the kids may tell their friends that Adrienne is their stepmom, because “it sounds mean,” Bailon states.

Tamera Mowry-Housley then asks Hougton would he be okay with Bailon disciplining the children.

According to our past post about 14 tips for making blended family work, our experts suggests, that the biological parent only should discipline his/her children and the stepparent would only discipline based on rules agreed upon and presented to kids as a couple.”

Adrienne is thus correct in her reply when she tells the audience that she has no intention on sending the kids to their room.

“No, I’m not doing that. We are going to be good cop, bad cop and I am the good one, okay!” she tells Houghton who agrees, ” She’s going to be the good cop.”

Tamar Braxton and Tamera Mowry-Housley’s “The Real” returns September 15 ( VIDEO TRAILER)

Sadly, our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Bethenny Frankel lost her FOX channel reality TV show when it didn’t get renewed for a second season.

But on an upside, our other alums Tamar Braxton Herbert and Tamera Mowry-Housley will debut a full season of their new talk show The Real on the same network this September 15.

The new moms and their co-hosts had a successful  short test run in limited and select markets this past summer 2013 (NY, Philly, LA, D.C Phoenix, Houston and Tampa) that was ratings gold. The show got picked up for a full season and will have a nationwide run starting late Summer.

Actress and Singer Adrienne Bailon (The Cheetah Girls),  comedian Loni Love and  TV host Jeannie Mai (How do I Look) round off the other ladies in the multicultural and younger answer to ABC  channel’s The View. 





According  to a press release announcing the premiere date:

These women are all going through varied life experiences, including new motherhood, new marriages, dating or singledom, that relate to every woman’s own trials and tribulations. Unlike other talk shows, each of the five hosts is admittedly a “work in progress” and fearlessly invites the home audience into their lives. Their fresh points of view, youthful energy and passion will turn the traditional talk show on its head. 

Fun! Are you excited about the new show launching? Catch a promo reel hear:
