Tamar Braxton Felt ‘Unattached’ to Baby Boy

Tamar Braxton

Tamar Braxton gave birth to her first child in June, but it wasn’t love at first sight. The “Love and War” singer is sharing a shocking confession about becoming a mother.

In an interview with “Good Morning America,” the “Braxton Family Values” star revealed that she didn’t immediately fall in love with her eight-week-old son Logan.

“I loved him,” said the always candid Tamar. “But I wasn’t like, ‘Oh, gosh, yes my baby, ooh.’ It wasn’t that. It was more like what do I do now, you know?”

She wasn’t able to make an immediate connection with her baby. “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?’”

Instead of feeling a bond, she was experiencing other emotions. “You’re in shock,” she said. “It took me a few days to really come to terms with the fact that I am a mom and this is my baby.”

She didn’t change diapers for the first week-and-a-half after Logan’s birth, so her husband, Vincent Herbert, took over the duties.

When her son started to breast feed, she finally felt the connection. “When he finally latched on I felt like he got me and I got him and this was all meant to be,” said Tamar.

But the new mom and baby are now inseparable. “I am very happy. I feel complete. … He is the best thing that ever happened to me.”

The first photos of Tamar and Logan can be seen in the new issue of Us Weekly.

    It’s brave for her to come out and say this. Most women don’t have to guts to do so. Props.

    @Tahir, I agree. Even if she wasn’t/isn’t suffering from post-partum depression, I’m sure everyone handles motherhood quite differently (I’m a man, so I’ll never know).

    @IV., I was raised to not to wish bad on anybody even if they deserve it. God is the one and only judge in life. So, that help us focus on our own lives then worry about someone elses. I wish success and prosperity to anyone doing positive. She could be out there murdering people(just saying).

    Has she even bonded with her baby still, her baby wasn’t 3 weeks and she was on the red carpet. I mean damn your child hasn’t even had a six week check up yet. But hey, the life of a celebrity, hope it works out for you Tamar.

    I am not a huge Tamar fan but even if someone I didn’t particularly liked had said this – I’d still think anyone criticizing her for it is a moron.

    Its a very sad but real thing to feel that as a mother. My aunt felt that way with her first born because the baby wouldn’t latch on and she couldn’t produce milk right away. Its not completely uncommon and its devastating for a mother to go through. Fortunately for Tamar she doesn’t seem to have had post partum depression as my aunt did but it is still extremely sad.

    Good for her for keeping it real. Much love happiness and blessings!

    Certain things you should, keep to yourself. You don’t tell the world that. Only family and friends. Beyonce would never say, some dumb shit like that about BIC, keep your thoughts in house dummy.

    My thing is this… Tamar talked all that shit about Bey not really having her child and all that, yet someone as self-centered as her isn’t looked at as possibly faking a pregnancy. LOL This statement may be true but it makes her look WAY more suspect than Beyonce in her whole pregnancy. As they say “something in the buttermilk ain’t clean…” or should I say the breast milk.

    @Miguel, As a Beyoncé fan, I have to say that I hate 99% of Beyoncé fans. Why do you care if she said anything about Beyoncé? Are you that pressed about what somebody else says about your fave that you have to hold on to it like a bitter Betty? Beyoncé doesn’t know you. She won’t check Rap-Up and be like “aw, look at Miguel holding me down,” so why hold grudges like that and why continue to spread negativity?

    Especially since Beyoncé fans had to deal with a whole lot of mess during her pregnancy and Blue’s birth. It makes you (and others like you) look very small and very hypocritical to be doing this to other people.

    I love Tamar but I do not think she should have said that to the public…she is over-the-top. True..a lot of parents do feel that way about their kids but why say it on TV. Now, what if baby Logan hears his mother saying this when he is older…not good. But hey too each their own…love love love and war Tamar(lol) and baby Logan looks just like his daddy..cutie!!!!

    Wow Kate for you to hate on someone like that shows that you have low self esteem . And my mama always told me if you don’t have nothing nice to say don’t say it at all.

    I Think Shes Really Brave For Admitting That She Wasn’t Attached To The Baby.. But it Doesn’t make Sense For Anyone To Say That Someone And Their Baby Didn’t Attach Because He Didn’t Latch On It Take Some Time For the To Catch On.
