In an exclusive interview with “Good Morning America” correspondent Abbie Boudreau, Braxton, who stars in the WE tv reality show “Braxton Family Values,” talked about her post-baby issues.

She revealed that she didn’t immediately fall in love with Logan, who is now 2 months old.

“I loved him, you know,” she said. “But I wasn’t like ‘oh, gosh, yes my baby, ooh,’ you know. It wasn’t that. It was more like what do I do now, you know?”

Asked whether she ever felt completely unattached to the baby, the “Love and War” singer told Boudreau: “I guess in a sense I did feel unattached because you know, I really, really wanted to connect with him because I wanted to breast-feed. And when he didn’t latch on and when I couldn’t produce milk I just felt like, ‘Is this the wrong child?’ You know what I mean? ‘Am I the wrong mother?'”

Braxton, 36, didn’t feel depressed, but she said she felt disappointed.

She explained her emotions when she was first handed her son after his birth.

“You’re in shock,” she said. “And you know, it took me a few days to really, like, come to terms with the fact that I am a mom and this is my baby.”

Uncomfortable in her new role as a mother, Braxton said she didn’t change her son’s diaper for the first week and a half after his birth. Her hands-on husband, Vince Herbert, took on the diaper duty.

“Well you know, I was questioning my motherhood. … Like, is this a mistake that God made? Or like, is this something that I need to hand over to my husband because he and the baby connected instantly. And I wanted that. And I guess I was a little jealous, pretty much. Am I being really honest here? I guess I am,” she said.

Mental health experts like psychologist Stacy Kaiser say Braxton’s experience is common.(READ MORE)
