In an exclusive interview with “Good Morning America” correspondent Abbie Boudreau, Braxton, who stars in the WE tv reality show “Braxton Family Values,” talked about her post-baby issues.
She revealed that she didn’t immediately fall in love with Logan, who is now 2 months old.
“I loved him, you know,” she said. “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?”
Asked whether she ever felt completely unattached to the baby, the “Love and War” singer told Boudreau: “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?’”
Braxton, 36, didn’t feel depressed, but she said she felt disappointed.
She explained her emotions when she was first handed her son after his birth.
“You’re in shock,” she said. “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.”
