Like never before, David Adefeso, the man, who seems ready to marry Tamar Braxton any day now, has decided to open up about their romance.
The “All the Way Home” singer and the businessman hosted their first Thanksgiving Day dinner alongside her son, Logan Herbert, and the event was extra special.
David revealed that his mother made it official that Tamar is a daughter to her, and Logan is her grandchild.
David confessed that he understood more than ever that the “Wanna Love You Boy” singer is part of his family.
He wrote: “Yesterday my @tamarbraxton, Beans, and I hosted our first Thanksgiving dinner as a family. My dynamic 80-year-old mom, sister, brother-in-law, and niece as well as more than 30 close friends of ours attended. We had a blast!!! It always amazes me to see how Tamar and my family took to each other from the moment they met back in Nigeria; they love her, and she loves them right back. During dessert, my mom stood up to speak, and she called Tamar her daughter. I wasn’t surprised: my family took to Tamar’s gorgeous simile, sincere kindness and infectious sense of humor almost as strongly as she took to my family’s deeply Christian, conservative, African roots.”
He added: “But what if my family hadn’t accepted her? As with a lot of African American families, many African parents and families tend to get too overly involved in their children’s relationships and married lives, often to the detriment of the young couple’s relationship (heck, I’ve seen some of my friends’ moms move into the couple’s home right after they got married, which so often makes life miserable for the daughter-in-law). I vowed that I would never put Tamar through the misery I’ve seen other couples go through with the man’s family. So I informed my family early on that they didn’t have a choice! They either love Tamar the way they love me and accept her the way I accept her….or they risk losing me completely. Needless to say, I needn’t have worried!! My mom treats Tamar like her 4th daughter (I have 3 sisters) and Beans like her 13th grandchild, my sisters cherish her the way they do each other, and my brothers adore my @tamarbraxton almost as much as I do.”
He concluded by: “Welcome to the Adefeso family, Tamar!! I am so grateful and give thanks that God brought you and Beans into my life. A word to all the young, strong brothas out there who are in relationships with our beautiful black sistas: please stand up for your girl! Once you pick her she becomes your #1 in life; and she comes before the rest of your family: before your mom, sisters, and before even you!! And that’s how to keep a happy home!” #happythanksgiving #godblessournewfamily
