Adrienne Bailon Houghton has checked off many of the items on her life’s to-do list. She’s a multi-platinum selling artist as a former member of both 3LW and The Cheetah Girls. In addition, she’s an accomplished actress, appearing in television shows and films like Coach Carter, I’m In Love With A Church Girl, and The Cheetah Girls franchise. Not only that, but for the last nine years, Bailon has served as the co-host of The Real. Adrienne Bailon has no doubt accomplished a lot. On top of her long list of growing achievements, she also juggles being a wife. But there’s one thing that she’s been unable to do just yet, and that’s to have a baby.
