Tamar Braxton was slimming down for her birthday last month, but as of late, she’s gained some extra pounds. However, it seems as if the singer isn’t getting bent out of shape about it. Instead, she’s embracing it because it’s all from her happiness with boyfriend David Adefeso.
“It’s late, but I LOVE being at our home downtown,” Braxton wrote over a Tuesday, April 23, video she posted to Instagram. I think that’s why I’m getting thick. love u @david.adefeso.”
The accompanying video saw Braxton panning the camera up from her ripped-jean-clad legs and toward her torso, which was covered in a black jacket.
“🥰💫 i be 16 and stuff with @david.adefeso,” the star captioned the video, tagging the financial services firm CEO in the process. Based on her words plastered over the video, it seems the two have also moved in together.
And it looks as if the teenage lovey-dovey vibes aren’t just felt by Braxton. Adefeso got into it too, pouring his heart out in the comments section.
“Awww babe❤️❤️❤️. I love being with you in our home downtown too💑; and in our home on the west side😍; and on vacation in Jamaica; and in Cabo, and NY, and DC….heck I just love being with you❤️❤️😍😍. Together forever🔥🔥🔥🔥❤️❤️❤️🥰🥰😎🥰🥰🥰😎❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️,” he wrote.
Braxton’s words resulted in some uplifting comments from fans who urged her to embrace the weight she’s gained since dating Adefeso for nearly a year.
“Thats that happy weight!!”
“@tamarbraxton that happy weight and it looks good on you. Blessings 💞🙏💞🙏”
“It’s called being HAPPY! You look great! Continue to have fun! ❤️❤️”
“Nice!! I’m so glad your in a good place and just happy 💯”
“See how skinny she was with Vince and how she always said she wants to be like that & she don’t want now but lord have things changed true happiness shows !! ❤️”
Braxton has been more public than ever with Adefeso since he made his debut on “Braxton Family Values.” Earlier this month, the star also walked the red carpet with her man, leaving fans split over his appearance.
Some understood Braxton’s oft repeated claims of his “fineness.”
“Your new man look handsome tay tay.”
“Tamar u two make a lovely couple. 🙋🏿😉❤️🙏🏾👍🏾”
But others raised their eyebrows.
“He’s not as cute as you pumped him up to be 🤷🏼♀️”
“Girl! He not fine. Stop saying that. Let other people say it, if it’s true. Don’t @ me I am a tamartian.”
