She captioned the post:

"For this child we have prayed
Just to hear our baby cry
Skin to skin and face to face
Heart to heart and eye to eye...

Our baby boy is here & we are so in love! If you have followed our love story... you know that our journey to baby has been very challenging - But God is true to His word and His promises."

Bailon's struggles to conceive a child with Houghton have been well-documented over the past six years. Houghton has four children from his first marriage.

Sources say Bailon hired a surrogate to carry her first child after years of trying to fall pregnant. This photo was posted on her Instagram page 5 weeks ago.

In 2021, The Real co-host Loni Love defended Bailon from trolls who asked why she wasn't pregnant yet.

Bailon got engaged to Houghton on August 12, 2016 in Paris. They were married after six months of dating.

Bailon is a former member of the girl groups 3LW and The Cheetah Girls. She is best known as co-host of the daytime talk show The Real.

She dated Rob Kardashian from 2007 until 2009. They broke up after she caught him cheating on her.
