Nearly two months after losing his daughter Bobbi Kristina, Bobby Brown is opening up about his heartbreak.

“We prayed and hoped for six months … for something better to happen,” he says in the premiere episode of The Real, airing Monday. “But when God calls you, he calls you.”

Bobbi Kristina was found unresponsive in her condo on Jan. 31, and died surrounded by her loved ones in a hospice July 26.

“I’m pretty sure her mother was had a part with like, ‘Come on, let’s get her up here,’ ” says Brown. Added his wife Alicia Etheredge: “In the best way in the welcoming way.”

Houston died from accidental drowning and was found unresponsive and underwater in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Feb. 11, 2012.

“She was not comfortable by herself, I guess,” said Brown of his ex-wife. “She just called my daughter with her.”

Bobbi Kristina’s conservators are currently embroiled in a lawsuit with her boyfriend Nick Gordon, who is being accused of causing her wrongful death.

Earlier this week, Gordon’s lawyers hit back with a response denying the allegations of abuse and stealing money from Bobbi Kristina.
