This first-time mommy-to-be sure isn’t letting any pregnancy woes cramp her style! Despite complaining of sore feet, expectant mother Tamar Braxton attended her gender-neutral baby shower at Bel-Air Hotel in L.A. on Sunday, May 5 rocking a pair of multicolored, sky-high Giuseppe Zanotti stilettos.
“These are very comfortable,” the Tamar & Vince star told Us Weekly. “I’m not going to wear anything that’s gonna make my feet hurt any more than they are. As long as they’re comfortable, they can go with me!”
Joined by her husband of five years, record executive Vince Herbert, the “Love and War” singer revealed that she’s luckily been having a fairly easy pregnancy thus far.
“I feel great,” Braxton, 35, told Us. “I have a lot of energy. I’m always upbeat and everyone has to tell me to sit down somewhere. But I feel amazing.”
The reality star’s footwear wasn’t the only surprising fashion trend at the family-feted party — as sister Trina showed up wearing hot pink onesie pajamas, much to her sibling’s surprise.
“She’s about to change a lot of onesies, so she’s got to get used to it,” Trina explained. “It was very befitting of the occasion.”
Indeed, Tamar’s four sisters — Toni, Traci, Towanda and Trina — have all been helping her gear up for her impending baby duties by dishing out their tips.
“My sisters have lots of advice,” Tamar shared. “But I think the one that sticks out the most is be the best mom you can be and always focus on your family first.”
But it seems that there is at least one piece of advice that Tamar has not taken from big sis Toni, who said she’s been telling Tamar to ditch the heels during pregnancy!
“She’s not listening,” the “Unbreak My Heart” singer, 45, told Us. “It’s just so dangerous. I get it. You want to look cute, but the last few weeks, few months, you have to take it easy!”
As the WE tv star prepares for motherhood, she admits that there is one pregnancy perk she’s caving into: Cravings!
“I’m the greediest person in America, of course,” Tamar laughed. “I love potato chips! I love a lot of junk food, but I can’t have a lot of salt.”
Her hubby Herbert, 43, told Us they’re super-eager to welcome their new family addition. I’m elated. I have no words,” Vince said, adding of his wife, “I can tell Tamar is going to be a great mom.”
Tamar & Vince’s first season wrapped in December 2012, but she confirmed on Twitter that they will be back for a second season, with a premiere date not yet announced.
