Adrienne Bailon complains about juggling intimate moments with motherhood
In a heart-to-heart discussion Six pages, the Grammy nominee talked about the best and worst aspects of motherhood. Before mentioning the good, the New York woman wept over the bad, especially the struggle to satisfy her sexual needs.
According to “The Real” alum, the most stressful part of being a parent is making love in front of your son. The TV personality admitted that while Ever was sleeping, she messed with Houghton.
“The worst thing about motherhood would be to start with a sleeping baby, but you just do it,” the 39-year-old revealed, noting that the situation is far from ideal. “It was fun at first … but now you’re like, ‘OK, this is going to be awkward,'” the former co-host of the television show continued. “My son is seven months old. We sleep tight here, so sometimes I just put the baby in the crib and then it’s quiet.”
Although the adorable baby got in the way of her parents’ intimate encounters, Bailon apparently didn’t mind, as motherhood was a fantastic experience. “The best thing about motherhood is seeing the world through my child’s eyes,” said the Daytime Emmy Award winner.
“I feel like even though I’m going to be 40 this year, I’m at zero because I’ve had new experiences with my kid,” the host explained, stating that she was impressed with Ever’s progress.
“He’s discovering the smallest things – from his toes to his toys – I’m in awe watching him grow up,” said the proud mum. Additionally, Bailon’s interview covered her emotional IVF journey ahead of her son’s arrival in August 2022.
Calling the experience one of the “hardest times” of her life, the 39-year-old admitted that she had six years of hormone injections, among other procedures. These treatments led to weight gain that fans assumed was a bun in the oven.
In the words of the TV personality: “When I was on ‘The Real,’ people would comment on the page saying, ‘Oh, she’s pregnant. I can see that your face is full or your stomach is bloated. I think she’s pregnant and it’s been hard.
The changes Bailon endured added to her insecurities, and for the longest time, the entertainer felt unable to appear in public. “I just wasn’t feeling my best and I feel like I’ve been through so much with my emotional level, so it didn’t help that I was criticized physically,” the New York native admitted.
