“Our baby boy is here & we are so in love!” Bailon, 38, captioned a black-and-white photo of the parents cradling the newborn, Ever James, who arrived via surrogate. “If you have followed our love story … you know that our journey to baby has been very challenging – but God is true to His word and His promises. We have quietly prayed while sitting on this most magnificent secret for the last 9 months. He is worth every tear, every disappointment, every delayed prayer, every IVF cycle, every miscarriage. Everything. All we feel is joy and overwhelming love & gratitude. Grateful to God, to our angel surrogate and to all of our friends and family who have stood with us for over 5 years on this journey. He’s here and we have never been happier to lose sleep!”

The baby is Bailon’s first and the fifth for the 47-year-old Houghton, a gospel singer, “Entertainment Tonight” reported. The celebrity couple tied the knot in December 2019, the outlets reported.
