Adrienne Bailon-Cosmo for Latinas-the jasmine brand

Adrienne Bailon is the cover star for Cosmo For Latinas August 2015 issue. The Real co-host, who got engaged earlier this year to her long-term boyfriend Lenny Santiago, dishes on why she feels her sister is her soulmate, how she choose to follow her dream over her boyfriend and why she regrets getting breast implants at 19. Peep a few excerpts.

On relationships:

I’ve gone through a lot to get where I am; I’ve had boy ups and downs like no one can imagine. There were times when I would hysterically cry to my sister and say, ‘If God has someone for me, where is he? Why am I not being understood? Why can’t he just love me — am I not enough?’ One day, my sister turned to me and said, ‘I’m your soul mate.’ I just boo hoo cried. I know it sounds crazy, but I’m not in search of a soul mate because I believe she’s it — and that’s good enough for me.

On moving from New York to Los Angeles for The Real:

When I got the job, everyone was asking, what are you going to do? I thought that was an absurd question. There is no way I’m not going to follow my dream for a man. In my 30s, that feeling clicked: Yes, I love you, yes, I want to be with you, yes, I want a family with you, but I come first. Once I was able to articulate that, Lenny found me even more attractive. I think that’s why I’m engaged today.
