What could be better than a trip to Paris? A Parisian engagement! Adrienne Bailon‘s vacation with boyfriend, Christian singer/songwriter Israel Houghton, 45, was extra special as he popped the question in the City of Love, presenting his lady love, 32, with a massive engagement ring — and she couldn’t wait to show it off! The star took to Instagram on Aug. 13 to announce the news, all while posting an image of her brand new bling — and it’s just blinding. Her radiant-cut sparkler features a halo and is set on a thin band — and it totally stole the show in the Boomerang she posted with the Eiffel Tower in the background. Oh la la!
Celebrity jeweler Layna Friedman, of the Alan Friedman Company in Beverly Hills, says: “The ring is very fitting for Adrienne who is such a gorgeous and talented woman. It appears to be a 5-6 carat radiant cut ring, accented with French cut pave diamonds. Her fiancé, Israel, most likely spent $100,000 plus on this ring.”
Adrienne’s musician fiancé also took to his Instagram page to announce the news, saying: “I have seen and felt the essence of Gods grace through the life, the kindness and the courage of this woman. I’ve seen her attacked, lied about, wrongfully accused, mocked, laughed at, and misunderstood. But, I’ve also seen the shining example of the eagle she is that rises above the cacophony of the noise of ignorants- I’m learning from her example. She loves Jesus. She loves her family. She loves people. Even the ones that don’t love her back. I pray God give me that same grace in my life. I’ve taken a giant leap of faith in asking her to share life with me forever and to give me a shot at getting it right this time… She has graciously granted my request… She said yes. Thanks Be To God. Thank you @adriennebailon for graciously loving me.”
