A SON AWAY FROM THE SPOTLIGHT
While Evelyn is always seen with her daughters all thanks to their reality TV show, fans of the family know that she also has a son named Michael.
In November, her one and only son turned 51, and she made sure to greet him on his special day. She shared a couple of photos with him, proving just how much he remains a mommy's boy until today.

A BRAXTON FAMILY LOSS
Evelyn's son rarely makes headlines as he's chosen to be a private person despite his family's rather public life. The only time he ever spoke out was to confirm the death of his daughter, Lauren, whom he revealed died due to a heart condition.
However, two months after her death, it was confirmed that she actually passed away due to a heroin overdose and fentanyl intoxication.
Nonetheless, regardless of her cause of death, the Braxton family mourned the loss of a loved one, especially since Lauren was extremely close to all of them, especially her loving grandmother.
