Adrienne Bailon & Israel Houghton’s Paris Wedding!

BellaNaija Weddings



Adrienne Bailon and Israel Houghton are married!

The couple got hitched in Paris on Friday, November 11 2016 in front of 70 guests. The city is near and dear to their hearts as they got engaged there in August at the end of a multi-city Euro vacation.

In October they had a joint Paris-themed wedding shower – a brunch where they were joined by family and friends. 

Now here’s the first wedding photo in the romantic city, via People. The blushing bride Adrienne told People

“I genuinely just feel so blessed and grateful. I’ve honestly never been happier in my entire life.”

“I’ve never felt what I feel right now. I can’t even describe what it is, but it’s such a peace mixed with total excitement.”

She said they chose an intimate wedding so it could be with people who have shared in their journey and those she could feel comfortable crying in front of, and not have to put up a performance for.

Adrienne has also changed her last name on Instagram –

      Husband leaves wife for another woman – outside woman is a husband snatcher
      Wife leaves husband for another man – wife abandoned husband , man outside is not a ” wife snatcher” smh.
      Any which way it must be a woman’s fault be a useful most women cannot face men and tell them the truth.

      Husband snatcher how?
      Israel cheated repeatedly on his ex, even fathered 2 kids, his wife divorced him.
      Then he got with Adrienne.
      You’re calling her ashewo but all you said to him is “your reward is coming”.
      Rest abeg.

      Is Instagram an issue when her name is already changed legally. So which is worse ?

      What do you mean by “She changed Her name so fast”, Isn’t that Her Husband’s name?? So She should wait a year, or prolly take permission from you before changing Her name??…Silly

    If he was someone close to me, would have adviced him to wait. Rediscover himself and reflect on what went wrong in his marriage. Enjoy time alone with just him and God for a while. 20yrs of marriage no be beans o. It seems like a rebound kinda ish and it’s usually sweet for a while till the excitement wears off. Wish them all the best.

    • Onetallgirl

      November 13, 2016 at 5:07 pm

      @Marian, I completely agree with you. He should have waited at least 2 yrs or more before considering marriage, take that time to reflect and reconnect with yourself.

    I am a man and must confess that Israel is an irresponsible man. He just discovered that a woman that was with him for well over 15yrs wasn`t beautiful anymore.. foolish man.!. That you go around claiming to be a gospel singer does not really mean you represent God. There is a big difference between singing about God and singing for God. smh

      Marriage should never be a pity party. By all means if one oreligion both of the spouses are tired after twenty years then they should by all means call it quits. That’s why I women should never let their personal growth and development take a backseat for love or family. You become a pitiable statistic when that happens

    • Eegor

      November 13, 2016 at 8:14 pm

      did you honestly just type that? a man should wake-up and feel he is tired of his wife and the next thing is divorce??marriage is a sacred tie before God it’s a commitment for life . A spouse of 20 years suddenly dosen’t appeal your sight anymore is a good ground for divorce??I pray you never find yourself in such a situation .

    • Nkechi

      November 14, 2016 at 11:53 pm

      @eegor. Her name is Bimbo, he could be a he. How can someone make such a statement. No fear of God, no deep thinking. Really. You said that. Very sad.

    I wish this marriage stays this beautiful just like the beautiful picture….

    As for Isreal’s ex-wife, God will make all things beautiful in your life as well

    Wish them all the best. Sha don’t start stories that touch some years later ooo.

    It’s safe to say that If you don’t know the facts,you should probably shut up.He didn’t just wake up and decide that his ex-wife isn’t beautiful anymore and filed for divorce.He cheated on her which he publicly admitted and was sorry about it but it affected his marriage that the wife asked for a divorce.Do you think he doesn’t regret his actions? He was married for a long time so I know it definitely hurts for both parties.He decided to re-marry and move on with life.The wife may or may not have done the same but we wouldn’t know cos she’s a private person.As for changing her name too fast,girrrrrrrl fix your face cos she’s #blessed and can there’s nothing wrong with that.

    @Amara, is this the same woman he cheated his 1st wife with married?

    • o

      November 13, 2016 at 1:32 pm

      No. Not the same woman. But Israel has 2 kids from another woman during his 20yr+ marriage to his ex wife…

    BN do you post these wedding pics for people to congratulate the couple or to declare open season on them?

    • Onetallgirl

      November 13, 2016 at 5:11 pm

    All I can say is I wish them well.We make mistakes at times.Also she didn’t break his home,she was dating someone else at the time.Israel learn from your mistakes,you can do it and move on.The downfall of a man is not the end of his life.Atbleast he admitted to it and seems sorry for what he did even though unfortunate it led to breakdown of his marriage.All the best

    A post about a wedding with just one pic? Is it by force? You could just have posted it on BN’s IG.

    Failure is a lesson how things do not work . Failure is the mother of all achievement . Congrats to the new couple and their new journey. Provided you are not doing the same things over and over, expecting a different result.

    I don’t know if the Bible has changed on its stance on divorce and remarriage or people now want to twist it to suit their selfish desires (Christians in this case ). Do divorcees or intending divorcees even think of the effect of their actions on the children they help bring to the world? Once you bring a child to this world everything doesn’t have to be about you, there’s a string attached – your child. While your world doesn’t have to revolve around your child, your decisions should at least include them. Studies have shown that children quickly adjust to the death of one parent than divorce or abandonment. Please if you don’t have the spines forget marriage. My two cents tho

    The same Bible allows divorce on grounds of infidelity.
