Adrienne and Israel Houghton enjoyed Napa Valley with their baby boy, Ever James, last month. The celebrity couple shared pictures from their trip with social media fans.
“The French Laundry @_tfl_ for @mariah.houghton’s bday,” Adrienne told her Instagram followers. “A family portrait by @iamgreya,” the celebrity mom shared. “I ate all the bread. All. Of. It,” she added. “@greya holding @everjames – love at first sight. Wine tasting @deldottowine – so lovely! The birthday beauty @mariah.houghton. On the road again.”
Israel and Adrienne Houghton welcomed their son nearly four weeks ago. “Ever James ♾ / For this child we have prayed / Just to hear our baby cry / Skin to skin and face to face / Heart to heart and eye to eye,” Adrienne shared on her Instagram page.
“Our baby boy is here and we are so in love,” Adrienne shared. “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,” Houghton revealed.
“He is worth every tear, every disappointment, every delayed prayer, every IVF cycle, every miscarriage,” the new mom told her supporters. “Everything,” Adrienne continued. “All we feel is joy and overwhelming love and 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! #HappilyEverHoughton.”
It was about two years ago that Adrienne Houghton expressed her desire to have a baby with her husband. “I’ve had to come to peace with that it’ll happen when it’s God’s timing and I believe in that and I have faith in all of that,” Adrienne revealed. “But it can be really discouraging and it can be really frustrating,” she shared.
“My wish for next year would be to start a family. That would be my biggest dream come true. I’ve always said I want to be a mom,” Adrienne said. “So prayers up and we will see what happens.”
