Adrienne Bailon’s fiancé, Israel Houghton, has spilled all the details on how he popped the question to the host last month in Paris.
The couple, who had only been dating for a few months at the time, took a boat ride around the French capital, he said during an appearance on “The Real” Monday.
“I told the captain — the lights sparkle on the Eiffel Tower every hour for five minutes. So I said, ‘Toward the end of that, make sure we’re right by the tower,’” said the gospel singer, 45. “She was looking out the window. I said, ‘Turn around.’”
“You guys know I’m obsessed with social media and Instagram,” Bailon, 32, explained. “So everyone goes, ‘1, 2, 3!’ I throw [the rose petals], and he was on his knee.”
Despite all his planning, Houghton was still uncertain if his lady would accept.
“Of course I’m nervous [at the time],” Houghton gushed. “This is a once-in-a-lifetime woman.”
