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 a bunch of jealous haters- the only one with any sense on here is Gretchen- you guys sound as envious as her sisters.

She’s so materialistic! Really don’t care for her fake a** at all. That ring is over the top and she’ll probably end up knocking the top off or something. It’s really gawdy!!! Greed at it’s finest.

Just My Opinion on

I personall think the whole “push present” is stupid. Most made the choice to become a parent, some unplanned. Signed, Mother Of Twins (my children are more than any material gift possible)

I absolutely despise the idea of a “push present”. The baby is the gift.

Sure on

Please. My daughter is my daughter. A gift is a gift. Get it right people. Let’s see you turn that ring down if it would ever be offered to you. Get real!

Oh what ever…I don’t like this, I don’t like that, I thought this, I thought that…Well here’s my two cents on the matter…1 & 2.

Okay I don’t understand what the purpose of a push present is? I always thought the baby was the gift you delivered. It seems like the young women today are always looking for something more. I don’t like the term push present either, couldn’t it be called a gift for giving birth? Although I don’t think that there should be a gift (other than the baby) for giving birth. But that’s just my opinion.

Well here’s my history, both my husband and I were over 35, started trying on our own for 4 months, nothing happened, went to a RE doctor and did 2 months of clomid, and 3 iuis with injections. Got pregnant the 3rd iui with twins, had to endure over 6 months straight of medication, needles, and daily and weekly doctor’s appointment. Doctor told me I would have to have a c-section. Over the period of a year, I went through a lot, both physically and mentally. When I finally had out babies, I was spent.

My husband gave me a nice gift as a way to thank me for enduring all that I had for him and our babies and I really appreciated it. I see nothing wrong with a push present.

I just looked at both of their net worth- not very impressive by celebrity standards.

I just looked at Tamar’s net worth- not very impressive by celebrity standards. She’d likely go bankrupt quickly if they ever split!
