The Real co-host Tamar Braxton is showing off her baby boy and revealing intimidate details about her delivery.
After giving birth almost two months ago, Braxton shared exclusive photos of baby Logan with Us Weekly. The 36-year old and her new bundle of joy look happy but Braxton admits it didn’t start off that way.
Braxton revealed to Good Morning America that she didn’t immediately fall in love with Logan.
“I loved him, you know,” Braxton said. “But I wasn’t like ‘oh, gosh, yes my baby, ooh,’ you know. It wasn’t that. It was more like what do I do now, you know?”
The Love and War singer added,”I guess in a sense I did feel unattached because you know, I really, really wanted to connect with him because I wanted to breast-feed. And when he didn’t latch on and when I couldn’t produce milk I just felt like, ‘Is this the wrong child?’ You know what I mean? ‘Am I the wrong mother?’”
Braxton said she didn’t feel depressed, but she felt disappointed that she didn’t connect with her son.
“You’re in shock,” Braxton said. “And you know, it took me a few days to really, like, come to terms with the fact that I am a mom and this is my baby.”
Braxton’s husband Vince Herbert had diaper duty for the first week.
“Well you know, I was questioning my motherhood. … Like, is this a mistake that God made?,” she said. “Or like, is this something that I need to hand over to my husband because he and the baby connected instantly. And I wanted that. And I guess I was a little jealous, pretty much. Am I being really honest here? I guess I am.”
Braxton added,”When he finally latched on [while breastfeeding], I felt like, “He got me and I got him and this was all meant to be. I am very happy. I feel complete. He is the best thing that ever happened to me.”
Some mental experts claim that a high percentage of women have the same experience as Braxton but are afraid to tell anyone.
