Adrienne Bailon and Israel Houghton dated for only six month before they got engaged. Now, the bride-to-be is revealing how she knew she wanted to spend the rest of her life with the Christian singer.

“We were friends for three years before. And I think that makes a big difference,” Bailon revealed on “Hollywood Today Live” two weeks ago. “And being older, you kind of know what you want. I think when you’re younger you have to date around, kind of see what you like, what you don’t. There’s different things, honestly, from different people I’ve dated that I’m like, ‘I love this quality, don’t love that quality so much.'”

Now that she’s 33, Bailon insists that she knows what she wants in a relationship, qualities that she has found in her Houghton who she calls her best friend. Instead of trying to impress the frontman of Israel & New Breed she focused on a friendship with the Christian singer before things took a romantic turn.

“We never thought we’d end up together, which allows you not to have your representative there. When you like somebody and you’re going into the relationship liking them, you have ulterior motives,” she said. “We’d hang out with a bunch of friends and I would say ridiculous things out of my mouth that I probably wouldn’t say if I really liked him. And he got to know the real me and I love that.”
