Adrienne Bailon-Houghton is keeping her baby close.

In a clip shared exclusively with PEOPLE from her upcoming appearance on The Tamron Hall Show, the TV personality mom, 40, reveals that she co-sleeps with her son, 17-month-old Ever James.

Hall shows a clip that Bailon-Houghton shared on Instagram of her playroom transformation, a Christmas gift for her little boy.

"The reality is we co-sleep so we don't call it his bedroom anymore," she says of the space.

Laughing, she adds, "That bed is there for when my cousins come over and they got kids, they sleep in that room. That boy is in that bed with me. I'm not letting him go."

Elsewhere in the conversation, Hall praises Bailon-Houghton for her openness about her journey to motherhood.

"That baby is so beautiful," Hall says. "I followed the journey of the Ever, the happy ending that is Ever ... the IVF journey that you went through, opening up about surrogacy. It's been beautiful to watch."

"Thank you. It's so weird because you get to this place, and it's something you prayed for, for such a long time," she says.

"I swear that on a daily basis — and my sister says she feels this way too and a lot of other moms — you just stare at them and you're like, 'Oh my God, I can't believe you're real,'" the star raves.

Bailon-Houghton, who shares her son with husband Israel Houghton, says she stares at her toddler "every day" and marvels at how much he's grown.

"He's now starting to talk so much more and his personality is coming out and it's just ... I will never stop reminding myself that this is the miracle I prayed for."
