Toni Braxton's mom Evelyn poses with her daughter in recent pic after major weight loss
Mrs. Evelyn Braxton celebrated her 71st birthday on January 14, and her eldest daughter, Toni Braxton, took to Instagram to honor her with a lovely post. Evelyn’s slimmer figure has fans in awe of how good the matriarch looks in her seventies.
Toni Braxton is a proud daughter as she shared a sweet message for her mother on her birthday, accompanied by a lovely pic of the two of them. In the shot, Toni wears a long-sleeved black shirt with a cut-out in the chest area, while Mrs. Braxton looked regal in a bright white buttoned-up shirt with silver details.
“It’s ya birthday! Happy Birthday to the most amazing woman in my life—my mama! Thank you for all that you do! #blackdontcrack @evelynbraxton,” Toni captioned the post.
Fans of the Braxtons took over the comment section to send their best wishes to Mrs. Evelyn and gush about her time-transcending beauty. “Happy Bday. Look good to be up in age. Keep doing what you are doing,” wrote one user.
Another added, “@evelynbraxton Happy birthday sugar you are a wonderful mother and one of my most famous and favorite TV moms,” and a third one chimed in to say “Happy Birthday to Beautiful Evelyn!!! We love you and how you complete The Braxton show.”
MRS. BRAXTON’S RAISES WORRIES FOR HER WEIGHT LOSS
Mama E, as many fans call her, raised some concerns about her health last November, when she made a special appearance at her daughter Trina’s daytime talk show, “Sister Circle.”
Evelyn showed up with a slimmer figure in pics from the recording, rocking a blue blouse with embroidered black and silver stones, that was cinched to her tiny waist. She completed the look with a grey skirt, black stockings, and matching heels.
Fans expressed their worries about Braxton’s extreme weight loss, and some even pointed out she had a facelift:
“@richgirl723: She looks sick and not as pretty as she used to look. She should not have done face change.”
“@bougie_suzy: Oh wow. Miss E lost a lot of weight. Hope she is alright.”
Others had a more positive intake on Evelyn’s new look:
“@bethearochelle: Alright Ms. E making on down to the circle! She looks good taking care of her health.”
“@bouyer261: I really love Miss E she is stylish, and she tells it like it is.”
While is not clear how much weigh Evelyn lost, she revealed back in July that she was starting to work out and cook healthier food in order to find a balance in her life.
"I’ve been walking more and staying active with my grandkids, which is what I love to do!" she said in an Instagram post, promoting a detox tea that she said was helping her as well.
TALKING ABOUT HER DAUGHTERS’ SPATS
On the show, Evelyn revealed how she manages the situation when two or more of her daughters are having a discussion. “I don’t pick sides,” she said. And continued:
“I stay out of it because if I say anything, then I’m siding with that one, or that one says I’m siding with this one. So, I just stay out of it. I’m like ‘ok, handle it for God’s sake.’ You’re not going to kill me, you know?”
Trina, however, felt some kind of way about her mom’s response and took her time to explain why Evelyn’s position can be a bit frustrating for her daughters. “Sometimes, somebody is just wrong, and sometimes you should be that person and say ‘well, look now, you’re not right about this’ and that keeps it fair,” she explained.
But Mama E was not having it and repeated once again: “Just figure it out,” for the audience’s delight.
