*One day before she returns to WE tv for a new season of “Braxton Family Values,” Tamar Braxton has revealed that she and her record executive husband Vince Herbert, 43, are expecting their first child.
The “Love and War” singer made the announcement this morning on “Good Morning America.” Moments after, the Alexander McQueen-clad mom-to-be shared the first picture of her baby bump on Instagram.
“I have a love on top! I am pregnant!” Braxton (referencing Beyonce’s song) told “GMA’s” Lara Spencer. “I feel great and greedy at the same time. This is the most I’ve eaten ever.”
Braxton, 35, didn’t reveal her due date on air, but she did hint that the big day is coming sooner than later. “I don’t have that many months to go,” she teased. “Almost there!”
The new season of “Braxton Family Values” premieres March 14 at 9 p.m. on WE tv. The couple’s spinoff series, Tamar & Vince, aired its season finale in December 2012. Braxton later revealed the show will be returning for a second season via her official Twitter account.
*Power couple Tamar Braxton and Vincent Herbert have just put their 12,402 square-foot mansion on the market after only a year.
According to Celebuzz.com, the couple purchased their French country-style home in September 2011 for between $3.4 and $6.9 million. It’s perfect timing to sell since the property value shot up to more than $7 million.
Their reps haven’t disclosed a reason for the sale, but more money is always good, right?
However, Bossip.com recently reported that there are rumors floating around that the two are filing for divorce; and that their issues don’t always show up during “Tamar & Vince” tapings.
Tamar hasn’t mentioned anything out of the ordinary, though. She mostly says adoring things about her man, and frequently posts lovey dovey photos of them on Instagram.
Breakout Braxton, Tamar, will premiere in her spinoff series “Tamar & Vince” on Sept. 20, the network announced today. The series will focus on Tamar in her ongoing effort to become a pop superstar, with husband Vince Herbert helping, supporting and being annoyed by her at every turn.
The network also officially announced the second-season renewal of “Mary, Mary,” featuring sisters and singers Erica and Tina Campbell, which will premiere Dec. 13.
Additionally, “My Fair Wedding With David Tutera” will get a fifth season with a new look and focus, and new title: “My Fair Wedding: Unveiled.” Joan and Melissa Rivers’ reality series “Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?” will premiere in first-quarter 2013.
*The latest issue of the venerable Jet magazine is out and it’s adorned by Producer/Manager Vince Herbert and his lovely wifey, Tamar Braxton. If you don’t have a copy, here’s some of what the twosome is talking about.
Vince on their relationship:
“We have fun, which is what a relationship is all about. Tamar is the greatest. Like, we’d just drive to Disneyland, then go to the movies and fall asleep. Because we are friends and you can’t stress that enough in a relationship. We have our arguments and disagreements, but that’s life.”
If you’re wondering how Vince deals with the fiesty Tamar, well, she says …
“He’s my husband, and I don’t talk to him the way I’d talk to a girlfriend.”
Of course, the gold-digger question came up and Vince didn’t hesitate to respond.
“I love my wife. This girl is so far from being a gold digger. I wouldn’t be with someone like that for nine years.
Even though they’ve been together for almost 10 years, they’ve had setbacks. The most recent one was Vince’s health scare, said Tamar:
“It was the first thing we ever had to deal with outside of the normal relationship thing. It went from dinner, to a doctor, to a hospital, to he’s in a coma. I had to sign a lot of papers. I’m happy that we were friends because when you’re going through ‘what would he do?’ you remember those conversations. At first Doogie Howser was his doctor, and I was like no. I want someone with gray hair.”
“We have a new outlook on life because of what happened. Everything before now has been erased.”
