Tamar Braxton from 'Braxton Family Values' Celebrates Her First Thanksgiving with Boyfriend David Adefeso and Son Logan
Tamar Braxton's boyfriend, David Adefonso made a powerful declaration during the Thanksgiving dinner the couple hosted for his family. He also revealed what his mother thinks of Tamar.
Tamar Braxton spent Thanksgiving for the first time with her boyfriend, David Adefoso’s family and friends who arrived from Nigeria for his earlier 50th birthday bash. Thirty of them became guests to a dinner the couple hosted with Tamar’s son, Logan.
HOW THE EVENING WENT
Tamar shared images from the milestone turkey occasion including a clip of how she fixed up her home for the evening. She revealed she and a friend “cooked our faces off” in her post’s caption as she expressed her thanks for “the love of true family and true friends.
Meanwhile, David shared images of Tamar blending with his family and detailed how special that night was in his caption. He said his 80-year-old mother, his sister, brother-in-law and niece were among their guests who immediately took a liking to Tamar.
"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 altogether.”
WHY THE NIGHT WAS MADE EVEN MORE SPECIAL
David recalled the first time his family met Tamar was in Nigeria and they already loved her then as Tamar loved them back. But during the Thanksgiving dinner, his mother spoke up to express how much she adored Tamar.
“During the desert, my mom stood up to speak, and she called Tamar her daughter,” David recounted.
“I wasn’t surprised: my family took to Tamar’s gorgeous simile, sincere kindness, and infectious sense of humor almost as firmly as she took to my family’s deeply Christian, conservative, African roots,” he continued.
HIS VOW TO TAMAR AND HIS FAMILY
David said that it wouldn’t have mattered if his family didn’t like her. Revealing how most African families would interfere in their children’s relationships to the detriment of the young couple, he vowed that wouldn’t happen to him and Tamar.
"I vowed that I would never put Tamar through the misery I’ve seen other couples go through with the man’s family,” he wrote.“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 altogether.”
On his birthday he also wrote a touching ode to her after she threw him what he described as his “best birthday ever.”

My @tamarbraxton and I in Houston, this time for a sad occasion....the send off of my fav uncle, Kola Adefeso. I always called him “Uncle Daddy” because he was more like a second dad than an uncle to me. With a long, faithful and blessed life well lived through 90, we joyfully celebrate your ascension to the bosom of our Lord. Rest In Peace, Uncle....we will continue the great works you started.
HIS MESSAGE FOR OTHER MEN
David insisted though that Tamar needn’t worry about his family who he believes has been won by the singer completely. He says his mother treats Tamar like her fourth daughter and Logan, who he refers to as Beans, as her grandchild. His siblings as well treat her like family.
Towards the end of his lengthy message, David welcomed Tamar to his fold. He also expressed his gratitude for the gift of Tamar and her son in his life. He then encouraged other young men men to stand up for their women. He advised,
“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!”

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, deep kindness and infectious sense of humor almost as strongly as she took to my family’s deeply Christian, conservative, African roots. 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. 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 ❤️❤️❤️❤️
DAVID'S MEMORABLE 50TH
Tamar must be on cloud nine these days what with David’d recent declarations of pure love for her. On his birthday he also wrote a touching ode to her after she threw him what he described as his “best birthday ever.” He said,
“Loving my @tamarbraxton brings me Joy; that Joy always keeps Hope alive....the Hope that no matter what obstacles we confront we will always confront them together; and the Hope that we will be together forever brings me Peace.”
It was David’s first birthday party, according to Tamar who made sure it was epic. She themed it “The Great Gatsby” and the night was magical.
We won’t be surprised that with the amount of love and affection coursing through the couple lately, it won’t be long if engagement news is what we’ll be hearing next. We are just happy for Tamar to has found a man who loves her dearly and shouts it out to the world.
