Adrienne Bailon opened up about her struggle to conceive with her husband, Israel Houghton, on Tuesday’s episode of “The Real.”

The 34-year-old talk show host, singer, and actress was very transparent as she explained how she thought getting pregnant would be easy especially because she’s a Latina.

Unfortunately, that hasn’t been her reality.

Adrienne shared:

Everybody doesn’t get pregnant right away. I think for myself, I thought it would happen so easily for me. It just hasn’t happened that way.

I have had to come to peace that it will happen when it’s God’s timing and I believe in that and I have faith in all of that. But, it can be really discouraging and it can be really frustrating.

Adrienne also went on to explain how people questioning whether or not she’s pregnant is insensitive.

I think I looked at myself and in my mind I was like, ‘I’m a Cheetah Girl. I’m 19 years old. I woke up and was like, ‘Actually I’m going to be 35 in a few weeks.

That makes a big difference. I can feel as youthful as I want on the inside and in my heart, but my ovaries are what they are. That sucks to hear that.

I appreciate Adrienne’s transparency as many other women (including celebrities) struggle with infertility.
