Bailon explained how it all went down. She said, “We were vacationing in Europe. We had just gone to Greece and ended up coming back to Paris, and I was surprised with my parents showing up in Paris. I didn’t know there was some trickery going on.”
Houghton ended up surprising Bailon by popping the question in front of the Eiffel Tower, with her parent present. Bailon says that she originally thought her parents were there to celebrate their 20th anniversary.
Bailon, who will be turning 33 this year said, “I knew exactly what I wanted, and he is everything I wanted and more.” She continued, “He’s awesome. He is my best friend. I think that makes such a big difference.”
When news broke earlier this year that Bailon was dating Houghton, she received a lot of backlash. Both found themselves defending their relationship publicly to silence critics. Read more on the story here.
