Former Disney star turned “The Real” co-host, Adrienne Bailon, has been candid about what she believes was probably her biggest regret in life: having breast implants when she was still a teenager.

Adrienne Bailon Houghton is better known for her teenage role as Chanel Simmons in Disney’s “The Cheetah Girls,” and for her singing career as part of the group of the same name, which ran from 2003 to 2008.

Now a co-host on “The Real” alongside Loni Love, Tamera Mowry, and Jeannie Mai, Bailon talks candidly on TV about many issues in her life, from her failed plastic surgery, to her struggles trying to conceive a child.


Back in the day, after the overwhelming success of the first "Cheetah Girls" film, a then 19-year-old Adrienne decided that she wasn’t happy with her appearance, as she wanted to get bigger boobs to feel “sexy and womanly.”

So, she got breast implants in Florida, Miami. However, although she wanted a B-cup size, she woke up with a double D-size, meaning, the implants were too big on her rather petite frame.

“I went from one insecurity, about not having big breasts, to another about people thinking I had fake boobs,” Adrienne told In Touch. “I was careless. I showed him [the surgeon] a picture and thought we had an understanding.”

Bailon also revealed on “The Real” that part of her insecurities was that people looked at her and knew she had been so insecure about her body in the first place, that she got breast implants.

“It’s probably one of my greatest regrets,” she told E! News on one occasion too.

Bailon Houghton ended up removing the implants, and in its place, she asked for a lifting, adding that she would do it again after having children in the future.



The 36-year-old has been trying to make an addition to her family since last year, but while she thought the process would be easier, she was proven wrong.

Adrienne Bailon and her husband, Israel Houghton, got married in Paris in 2016 after only a few months of dating but years knowing each other and being good friends.

“I genuinely just feel so blessed and grateful. I’ve honestly never been happier in my entire life,” Bailon told People at the time of her wedding “I’ve never felt what I feel right now. I can’t even describe what it is, but it’s such a peace mixed with total excitement.”

Two years after getting married, Bailon and Houghton were ready to welcome a child into their lives, so they started trying to conceive, but Bailon is having a hard time getting pregnant.


Talking about the issue on “The Real,” Bailon revealed that her fertility plans are nothing like she thought it would be.

“I think that as an audience, we should be sensitive to the fact that everybody doesn’t get pregnant right away,” Bailon said. “I think for myself, I thought it would happen so easily for me, and it just hasn’t happened that way.”

Although Bailon Houghton said she trusts “God’s timing,” she also revealed that constantly failing to conceive was frustrating and discouraging, especially when watching how easily other people have it.

Still, Bailon and Houghton are staying positive since they believe there is "a plan and a purpose and everything is going to work the way it's supposed to."

It also helps them to see stories from other stars like Carrie Underwood or Gabrielle Union, who struggled to have children for years and now are proud moms.



To help with the process of having a baby, Bailon Houghton started to lose weight this year, as she’s aware she needs to be in the best condition if she wants to carry a child in the future.

“I really buckled down this summer and just made it happen,” she told People. “I got into a routine of working out so that the day I’m pregnant, I can continue to be consistent with working out.”

So far, fans have been able to witness the transformation through Adrienne Bailon's Instagram, a journey that she first announced through social media saying she was adopting a vegan diet earlier this year.
