Toni Braxton and son Diezel, nine next month, were in LA this past weekend for the Season 2 reunion show taping of WE tv’s show “Braxton Family Values.”
Young Diezel was diagnosed with autism at the age of three. “Diezel’s journey has been struggling,” the Braxton Family Values star told OK! magazine in 2011. “It’s been rewarding to see how he’s grown, but I remember when I first found out. I remember blaming myself; I thought it was my fault. I wish I knew what triggered it. Still, often, as a mom, I blame myself. I didn’t take my vitamins every day … maybe it was the medications I was on before I got pregnant.”
She added, “They haven’t figured out what triggers [autism], but whatever it is, I don’t care, find a cure. Help my kid; help all the other kids. But I had to shake myself off, and go ‘enough about me,’ and make sure my kid’s OK. Once they diagnosed him, we were able to itemize the issues.”
Toni also has an older son named Denim. Braxton Family Values reunion special airs Thursday, March 29 at 9 p.m. EST.
