In true Braxton family style, Tamar Braxton's June 6 delivery of her first child — Logan, with husband Vincent Herbert — was a circus. "Vincent had a Hugh Hefner robe on and was doling out orders to everyone," The Real host, 36, reveals in the Aug. 12 issue of Us Weekly, on stands now. "And my sister Toni was giving unsolicited advice on how to push."
Enlisting Atlanta-based OB-GYN Dr. Jacqueline Walters, who appeared on Bravo's Married to Medicine, to deliver her son, Braxton tells Us she was initially hesitant to bond with her infant due to his fragility. "I remember being shocked. I could not believe that this is my baby and I had to take this baby home with me," admits the TV star. "I remember not wanting to hold him at first because I was scared I was going to drop him, so Vincent did a lot of the holding because he was just so little and fragile. I was like 'Oh, my God, I'm going to break his bones."
Daddy Herbert also had a heavy influence in naming his firstborn. "Vince loves the soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful. We tape it every day," says Braxton, who married the record executive in 2008 and stars alongside him in WE tv's Tamar & Vince, a spinoff of Braxton Family Values. "There is a character named Brooke Logan, and we got Logan from her last name because we wanted the initials LV. Logan kind of stuck with us — we really like it."
Braxton headed back to work on her daytime talk show, The Real, two-and-a-half weeks after Logan's birth. The TV star — who has already dropped 25 of the 65 lbs. she gained during pregnancy — tells Us her son is a "perfect mixture" of his parents. "Logan is the best newborn ever. I know — I have 13 nieces and nephews!" Her only issue: "He's quiet, so not like me at all," jokes the outspoken first-time mom. "Very disappointing!"
