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.

See Braxton reenact her “surprise face” below, and tell us: What do you think of her new bling?

Why is Ellen’s fingernail photo shopped in the pic!?? LOL! In the video they show her holding Tamar’s hand to look at the ring and you can clearly see there is a bruise on Ellen’s finger nail but on the pic it isn’t there. Funny I thought they only photo shopped bodies and faces.

no thanks on that ring

Can I just go on the record and say that the term “push present” is one of the ugliest phrases to find it’s way into the modern vernacular? And, isn’t getting a beautiful baby at the end of it all “present” enough?

Bebe I thought the same thing! I saw the original show and noticed Ellen’s thumbnail being black. When I saw the picture I said to myself “this picture has been photoshopped.”

This idea of being “owed” a push gift is so unbelievably greedy. Who started this absurd trend? Your “push gift” is your BABY.

Mimi…..May I just go on record to say I agree with you 110%?
And thank you for stating it so succinctly.

I was always led to believe the baby was the push gift! Seems diamonds mean more than the gift of a child.

I really don’t like the term “push present” but regardless, I wouldn’t want one. I would much rather have the father promise me he’s going to be an equal partner when parenting our child.
