Congratulations are in order for Adrienne Bailon because it was recently announced that “The Real” host has gotten engaged to her latest boyfriend, Grammy Award-winning gospel singer Israel Houghton.

According to reports, Bailon revealed the big news yesterday on her Instagram page. The loving couple has been vacationing in Paris for a few days now and Bailon decided to post a video of her hand in front of the famous Eiffel Tower. But what was more impressive than the famous monument was the monumental diamond engagement ring that was sitting on her ring finger in the short clip.

“You. Me. Oui,” Bailon captioned the video.

According to reports, Houghton and Bailon first met in 2013 when they worked together on the set of the film I’m In Love With a Church Girl, in which Bailon starred and Houghton served as the executive producer. At the time, Houghton was still married to his ex-wife, Meleasa.

However, by 2015, Houghton’s marriage had fallen apart and he and Bailon began dating shortly after she ended her engagement to her ex-fiancé, Lenny Santiago, that same year.

This February, Houghton finalized his divorce from Meleasa, but reports were flying that Bailon was a home wrecker and came in between the exes. However, both Bailon and Houghton denied the claims.

In his own post about the engagement, Houghton addressed the drama from earlier this year and explained why he loves his future wife so much.

“I have seen and felt the essence of God’s grace through the life, the kindness and the courage of this woman. I’ve seen her attacked, lied about, wrongfully accused, mocked, laughed at, and misunderstood. But, I’ve also seen the shining example of the eagle she is that rises above the cacophony of the noise of ignorants- I’m learning from her example. She loves Jesus. She loves her family. She loves people. Even the ones that don’t love her back. I pray God give me that same grace in my life. I’ve taken a giant leap of faith in asking her to share life with me forever and to give me a shot at getting it right this time… She has graciously granted my request… She said yes. Thanks Be To God. Thank you @adriennebailon for graciously loving me,” Houghton wrote in an Instagram post.

Once again, congratulations to Houghton and Bailon and we wish them a happy and healthy marriage.
