Just this morning, Tamar Braxton shared the first photos of newborn baby boy, Logan Herbert. Now the new mom is sharing her experience as a first time mom — something she discussed heavily during her ‘Good Morning America’ interview.
Braxton admits to feeling unattached to her son initially. She says, “I loved him, you know. 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? You’re in shock….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.”
On Questioning Being A Mother
“Well you know, I was questioning my motherhood. … Like, is this a mistake that God made? 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.”
“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?'”
On Finally Connecting With Her Baby
“When he finally latched on 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.”
