While shooting the video to her follow-up single "The One", Tamar Braxton, who hit it big with "Love And War",  "delivered" an exclusive interview to TheYBF.com's correspondent Lauren Smith  where she shared her candid feelings about being pregnant, what she's wearing, what she's eating and if she's packed a bag for the hospital!  She also revealed a "few" deets about her upcoming album. Here are the highlights:

On what it "feels" like to be pregnant:

I don't think any pregnancy is easy...people don't talk about that a lot. Everybody's like omg it's a gift, it's a blessing...it is! But it sucks!

On being named one of "Best Dressed Expectant Mothers":

I just dress to my liking. It's nothing that I'm doing purposely. Right now, I refuse to wear maternity clothes. You go through a bit of denial. I just think there are other things to wear rather than big t-shirts and clothes that make you feel unflattering. When you're pregnant, you want to feel as sexy as you can....and that is my goal!

On who she's wearing:

I call it my "maternity" McQueen...because a lot of his things are stretchy. A lot of BCBG. I refuse to wear anything uncomfortable.

On her cravings:

I still like sweet stuff. I'm like greedy Gonzales now (and she still loves Dunkin Donuts apple fritters).

On what she will take to the hospital:

It won't be anything high fashion...it will all be comfortable clothes. (And she hasn't packed a baby bag yet!)

On how she will raise her child:

I think if I follow her blueprint (her mom Evelyn) I'll be alright. My parents did a great job raising us. We've grown up to respect our parents and respect others. We get into little tiffs but we always make up. Those are the values I'd like to instill in my child.

On her next single:

This single...I love it so much. It's a throwback single...it's one of those summertime anthems.  As so as you hear it....you'll love it.

On her leading man:

He's yummy right? He's kind of yummy in a creepy way cause he looks like my brother and my brother's son.

On her album:

My album comes out soon. It's done. It's ready. (She doesn't want to give a date because it keep s changing).

On who she's listening to:

Fantasia, Kelly Rowland, and Miguel 


Check out a few flicks from the set:

I don't think any maternity is simple...people don't discuss that a lot. Every person's like omg it's a present, it's a advantage...it is! But it sucks! http://answers.webmd.com/answers/5013423/if-i-cannot-afford-tubal-ligati...

Why are you guys comparing

Why are you guys comparing this girl's materity wardrobe to Kim K's and Beyonce's??? This is a video shoot!!! This was picked out for the video!! You know we have seen Tamar in high heels and tight dresses her whole pregnancy. I'm not saying anything is wrong with it but she's no different from the other two when it comes to letting go of high fashion!

I dont know how kanye fell

I dont know how kanye fell into that kris jenner con. What was he thinking? The baby is not even here and kim already hating on it. I have never known a white woman who loves a black child unless white money or black d8ck comes with it. They usually treat the kid like dirt when the money aint right, and the d8ck takes flight. Poor Kanye. He'll be broke fighting for custody OR when they're done using that kid to pick his pocket. IF it is even his. She was married to that other guy. It might be his. He better get a DNA test.

Towana and Tony are my

Towana and Tony are my absolute faves of the sisters. I dont know how Tamar and Vince got a show. I have never saw a husband so mean and disrespectful to his wife as Vince. He doesnt seem to like her at all. It shows in his eyes, demeanor and everything about him. It is hard to believe they had sex. You never see them really kiss or embrace. But why should she when his trap is open all the time to catch flies, I guess. I dont know why these 2 are married. The stress she causes him is shortening his life. I like her record though. It is a sad world when the great Toni Braxton records are not selling, but if they are requiring black people to have ipads and iphones to qualify for purchase then, that explains why many of our Greats are failing to sell music.

Now lets see if she gets the

Now lets see if she gets the same backlash that Kim K got for being honest and saying that pregnancy was not this great thing. I bet she won't because it's all personal when it comes to Kim. Sad!!! I like Tamar's honesty. Different women have different pregnancies, it's not all peaches, in some cases it's pure misery but the end result is still the same a blessing.

Tamar is the cutest pregnant

Tamar is the cutest pregnant women I seen thus far. Her overalls are comfy and cute!! I like how real she was in this interview, can't wait for her album to come out. I'm not a fan of plastic surgery but I know for a fact a couple of the Braxton sisters got a nose job and Tamar's doctor messed up and made her nose crooked. Did everyone see Papa Braxton's huge nose on the show....O.O i mean its huge, i would be tempted to get a nose job too. geeez

I have grown to like Tamar &

I have grown to like Tamar & I like her music-and she seems to be comfortable & genuinely HAPPY with her pregnancy: as opposed to Kim K, always wearing black & squeezing into the wrong clothes. Since Braxton Family Values started, I can also see how Tamar GENUINELY fell for Vince. He's not ugly-just big; he treats her well but also straightens her out when necessary. The money doesn't hurt of course but I think they're better than that. I don't think he's her velcro-as opposed to all of her other sisters' despondent, broke & cheatin-ass husbands.

Tamar looks cute and looks

Tamar looks cute and looks like she's embracing, rather fighting the beautiful changes her body is going through. Luv her sensible take on what she'll be taking to the hospital.

Maybe it's just me, but I

Maybe it's just me, but I always find it so awkward when the supporting actor in a video is so much better looking than the real significant other of the artist ... Beyonce did it in "Best Thing I Never Had" and Tamar has done it twice now -- It's like a not-so-subtle way of saying, "Yeah I'm with you but this is what I'm actually attracted to."
Girl's picture

The only thing she's the

The only thing she's the blueprint for is what not to do to your face so it doesn't look like a muppet. Black women need to be called out for all of that unnecessary plastic surgery cause it looks majorly fucked up!!!

Still not a fan of all the

Still not a fan of all the plastic surgery she's gotten but she looks great! Her pregnancy is really wearing well on her! unlike Kim K who's body is filled with injections and implants, her pregnancy just makes her look really lumpy. But Tamar is doing it and Kim should take NOTE! Good for you Tamar!
