Tamar Braxton, the 36-year-old singer-songwriter and co-host of "The Real," recently admitted that she has already questioned herself as a new mother.
Braxton and her music executive husband Vince Herbert had their first child in June. However, the singer admitted that motherhood did not come easy for her after her son Logan was born.
"I guess in a sense, I did feel unattached because I really really wanted to connect with him," Braxton admitted on Good Morning America recently. "I wanted to breastfeed and when he didn't latch on and I couldn't produce milk, I just felt like, 'Is this the wrong child? Am I the wrong mother?'"
While many mothers have experienced Braxton's sentiments, she came forward about why jealousy and confusion set in for her before the joyful motherhood experience.
"I was in shock and it took me a few days to come to terms with the fact that I am a mom and this is my baby. I was questioning my motherhood," she revealed on GMA. "Is this a mistake that God made. Is this something I should hand over to my husband, because he connected with the baby instantly. And I was jealous pretty much."
Now, the new mother insists that her baby is nothing short of a blessing from God.
"When he finally latched on [while breastfeeding], I felt like, He got me and I got him and this was all meant to be," she said on GMA. "I am very happy. I feel complete. He is the best thing that ever happened to me."
The singer previously spoke about taking time to fall in love with her son and defended herself when criticized by some spectators.
"Immediately everything changes but immediately you don't fall in love, but I heard that you do but they lied," "Braxton told CocoaFab's blogger C Nikky last June. "Just like you fall in love with a little person, it's just like that."
However, Braxton took time to further explain her statement.
"It was completely taken out of context, but isn't everything I say. You know, some people get and some people don't," Braxton recently told Sister 2 Sister Magazine. "What I've learned along the way is that you can't go to each person and explain yourself. And I refuse to do that."
