Tamar Braxton's 'Push Present' Diamond Ring May Cause a Lunar Eclipse

If you notice Tamar Braxton is leaning slightly to one side, don’t be concerned. It’s just the result of the massive new diamond ring on her left hand, a Christmas-slash-“push” present from husband Vince Herbert.

The new mom — who welcomed son Logan Vincent Herbert last year — has been wearing the truly enormous rock in place of her original engagement ring and opened up to Ellen DeGeneres about the romantic gift.

“You know, I don’t know if it’s a Christmas present because my husband owed me a push gift and I didn’t get it,” she told the talk show host Wednesday, referring to the gift she was expecting after giving birth. “So I think this is like a combination.”

And she was definitely surprised (and confused) when her husband gave it to her. “He was like, ‘I have to show you something on this hill,’ and it was dark outside. I was like ‘Dude, I’m not going outside.’ I’m afraid of lions and tigers and bears. All of them.”

But it was well worth the trip up the hill when she opened the box featuring a cushion-cut stone surrounded by a halo of mini diamonds on a micropavé band, which Ellen estimates to be “40 or something” carats.

What happened to flowers? Press relations must have made the phrase “push present”….anything to take up editorial space and sell papers….Journalism has lost integrity. Next, we’ll hear celebrity women getting “end of phase” presents for menopause……

This Braxton woman is pathetic! She could not handle seeing other women showing off rings so she had to get involved for the attention. The ring looks like her, awful!

She’s “owed” a push present?? OWED? What a greedy, grasping, pathetic piece of humanity.

Wouldn’t that scratch your baby? It’s so big & rough edged – it will scratch that child, a lot.

First there was ‘baby bump’, now ‘push present’? Sounds like you’re talking TO babies, not about babies.

Jocelyn on

She expected a push present? The only thing I expected or wanted after birthing a child was a baby, to snuggles and cuddle them, count their fingers and toes. Sad

He owed her a push present? That alone is disgusting. Did he cheat or have a baby with someone else? Why the need for such a huge ring?

Claire on

Why is she owed a push present?? When all is said and done, SHE’S the one who ultimately made the decision to have the baby! Buy your own damn push present!

Why should you be rewarded for doing something women have been doing for thousands of years? Having a child isn’t “special or unique”. The CHILD is special and unique, you’re just the vessel that carried the baby. Personally, I always felt giving birth to my children was an honor and privilege.

This muppet should be happy about having a beautiful healthy baby, and being grateful she can be a mom.
