The romance between ‘The Real’ host Adrienne Bailon and gospel powerhouse Israel Houghton is nothing short of fairy tale. So of course, their engagement followed suit.

The pair had only been dating a couple months when Houghton popped the question. His proposal began with a boat ride around Paris.

“I told the captain — the lights sparkle on the Eiffel Tower every hour for five minutes. So I said, ‘Toward the end of that, make sure we’re right by the tower,’” the 45-year-old said on an episode of ‘The Real.’ “She was looking out the window. I said, ‘Turn around.’”

“You guys know I’m obsessed with social media and Instagram,” Bailon gushed. “So everyone goes, ‘1, 2, 3!’ I throw [the rose petals], and he was on his knee.”

Despite all his planning, Houghton was still uncertain if his lady would accept.

“Of course I’m nervous [at the time],” Houghton gushed. “This is a once-in-a-lifetime woman.”

So adorable.
