Tamar Braxton Brings It ‘All the Way Home’ on ‘Ellen’

Tamar Braxton

Tamar Braxton wasted no time getting back to work after the holiday break. On Wednesday, the R&B songstress appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” where she performed her Love and War single “All the Way Home” and showed off photos of her 7-month-old son Logan.

“He got the faces from me,” said the proud mom.

She also flaunted the massive diamond ring she received from her husband Vince. “I don’t even know if it’s a Christmas present because my husband owed me a push gift and I didn’t get it, so I think this is like a combination,” she said.

On January 26, Tamar will attend the Grammys, where she is nominated for three awards. Her talk show, “The Real,” has also been picked up for fall 2014.
