Tamar Braxton is a new mommy, and she’s damn proud!
The “All The Way Home” singer recently covered Ebony Magazine where she posed it up with her brand new bundle of joy Logan.
Not only are we getting to see the new motherly side of Tamar, but we also get to see a fresh face from her as she dons a lot less makeup.
Showing off her new mommy glow, Tamar revealed how she kept her body right during her pregnancy, as well as some other pretty serious relationship topics.
Check out part of the interview below:
On not giving into pregnancy cravings to keep her pregnancy bod right
“He’s like, ‘Nope. Don’t do it. You’re gonna be mad.” Vince chimes in, “Even before the pregnancy, she was very conscious about her weight, so I’m just helping her to be a better person.”
On surviving two past abusive relationships-including one where she was yanked out of her apartment by her hair:
I almost had to tell my story to each individual and then I decided that’s not what I’m going to do. I can’t make anybody believe, I can’t change anybody’s mind about anything. (The abuse,) it happened. I’m not all the way comfortable with sharing a lot of what happened to me (yet), but what I said was true. When I’m ready to talk about my abusive past I will, I’m sorry that I’m not. But if it wasn’t for (God), I wouldn’t be here.”
On how her abusive relationships affected her self esteem
“I haven’t always been vocal about my feelings, especially in a relationship. Now, I make sure that I’m very vocal about my feelings, everybody knows how I feel. Sometimes it’s over the top and most of the time it’s ‘Team Too-Much,’” she laughs, “But I have to do a lot. (I was) a shy person who had self-esteem issues trying to figure it out — now, I’ve gotten over my hangovers. You say, I’m comfortable and confident, it took a long time to get there. Maybe like a year or so before Braxton Family Values, I wasn’t that person. I was faking it til I make it, pretty much…..
“I didn’t feel like I was beautiful. I didn’t feel like I deserved things. I didn’t feel like I could stand in a room and speak or even sing and have people who wanted to listen.”
On her skin disease Vitiligo & rumors of her bleaching
Anybody with skin issues knows that that’s a very sensitive subject. And that’s why I’ve never shared that I have Vitiligo, because I do. I’ve always had it, since I was a young girl. It’s not as bad as others because everybody has it differently, but I’ve certainly had mine diagnosed. That’s why I tan. People say, “You bleach your skin!” But I tan just so I can have a better tone on my skin, boo!
It’s gotten worse since I’ve gotten pregnant. If you shake my hand now, to me it’s more noticeable. But when you get diagnosed with a skin disorder, it’s hard. It does weigh on your self-esteem. It really does. But I’m done defending that. I’m not bleaching my skin and if I was bleaching my skin and I felt like saying so, I would, but for the record, I am not.
We’re so proud of Tamar and happy that she finally has the life she’s always wanted!
