via MadamNore/By Veronica Wells:
Whenever people with older children get remarried, I wonder how those children adjust to the new partner in their parents’ lives. I certainly wondered about that with Israel Houghton’s children when he married Adrienne Bailon.
After being married to his wife Meleasa Houghton from 1994 to 2015, Israel and Meleasa had three children together. (In addition to the two children Israel fathered during his marriage with mistress DeVawn Moreno.) These kids were teens and in their twenties when their father married Adrienne. Accepting a new stepmother at that mature age can be difficult.
But apparently, Adrienne has a lovely relationship with Israel’s 23-year-old daughter Mariah. In fact, the two are great friends. And they seemed to enjoy an ease with one another from the very first time they met—when Adrienne was introduced as Israel’s girlfriend.
The two spoke about the many facets of their relationship in a recent video on Adrienne’s YouTube channel, All Things Adrienne.
Check out a few highlights from the conversation below.
Mariah: [When people meet us] they think we’re sisters because we usually have the same hairstyle, parted down the middle, bun pulled back.
Adrienne: People think we’re sisters and we don’t tell them that they’re wrong
We are 13 years apart and me and Israel are 12 years apart.
When I was dating Israel, I actually knew Mariah. We’d actually met but I never knew you. She was 14-years-old when I originally met her. And then when Israel and I started dating, you were 18 going on 19.
Mariah: I was so nervous.
Adrienne: You were nervous? I threw a whole party. I threw a party for comfortability purposes. But it was a good vibe. We called it a summer soiree.
