    Bobby Brown continues to mourn the loss of his daughter.

    Almost two months after Bobbi Kristina Brown's tragic death, the singer has decided to speak out in his first television interview since experiencing the news, and his pain is still quite visible.

    "I might walk back there and start crying," Brown shared in a sneak peek at Monday's season premiere of "The Real" before pointing backstage. "If I could have been there two days before, it wouldn't have went down like that."

    Bobbi Kristina Brown was found unresponsive in her bathtub on Jan. 31. She was placed in a medically induced coma and was later transferred to hospice care in June. While Pat Houston told E! News at the time that Bobbi Kristina's health "continued to deteriorate," Bobby Brown continued to hold onto hope.

    "We prayed and hoped for six months for something better to happen," the New Edition singer explained to the panel that includes Loni Love, Tamera Mowry, Tamar Braxton, Jeannie Mai and Adrienne Bailon. "But when God calls you, he calls you."

    He continued, "I'm pretty sure her mother [Whitney Houston] was ... had a part with like, 'Come on, let's get her up here' in the best way possible. She was not comfortable by herself I guess and she just called my daughter with her."

    Today, Brown and his wife Alicia Etheredge-Brown (who also appears on Monday's episode) are trying to find happiness with the birth of their newborn girl. They also remember the good times they shared with Bobbi Kristina.

    "What's your fondest memory?" Love asked Brown during the emotional interview. "Her smile," he responded.
