Tamar Braxton: Why Working Moms Shouldn’t Feel Guilty

07/17/2013 at 02:00 PM ET

At five weeks old, Logan Vincent Herbert is making it clear that he is Daddy’s little boy.

During a press tour for her new talk show The Real, Tamar Braxton gave PEOPLE a sneak into the life of her newborn.

“The baby is just like my husband [Vince Herbert],” the songstress, 36, tells PEOPLE. “Vincent is really reserved and laid back and quiet and likes to keep to himself. Logan is just like that.”

She adds, “If you touch him, he will make a noise, like, ‘Don’t touch me, get off me.'”

The reality star announced the birth of her son via Twitter, posting a photo of a large blue teddy bear and an “It’s a boy!” balloon.

The working mom is thrilled about her new gig and says nurturing her career keeps her content.

“Working makes me happy,” Braxton says. “So I have to do this so I can come home and be a happy mother for my child because they pick up on that.”

The Real, also featuring Loni Love, Adrienne Bailon, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry-Housley, premiered Monday and is currently airing on FOX in Los Angeles, New York City, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Houston and Tampa.

“Working” on getting more plastic surgery.

@ lovely123

She’s never had surgery, that’s what her and all of the sisters look like. I guess you are just commenting off the cuff? Do you know anything about the family?

All she has had is septal surgery, and if you look at her pics from early on, you can see–she looks the same. She wears wigs all the time but hasn’t had surgery. Can’t wait to see a picture of Logan with Vince. That is a very “wanted” baby!

The View, The Talk, and now The Real. How many of these shows are necessary? I wish we’d go back to the era when a good idea for a television show or film prompted creative minds to look for a new idea, rather than hopping on whatever bandwagon seems to be making the most money….
