And soon enough, Tamar’s son, Logan Vincent Herbert, arrived on June 6, 2013.

His other daughter Ashlee is healthy and thriving as an entrepreneur and a life and career coach. As for his sons, Michael Braxton III was born on October 16 and Kahnrad on June 13.
Evelyn Always Wishes Her Grandkids On Birthdays
Evelyn Braxton’s usual way of showing love to her grandkids is through birthday posts on her Instagram. She wishes every one of her grandkids on their birthdays, albeit sometimes a bit later.
The 'MomMoms' even posted a tribute birthday post for her late grandchild, Lauren, in 2019. She wrote she was thinking of Lauren on the special day.
Evelyn Is Already a Great-Grandmother
Kevin Surratt Jr. and his partner Olivia Haaron were the first ones to gift Evelyn with a great-grandchild. They gave birth to their son, Kevin Surrat III, or 'K3' as they call him in the family, on April 24, 2018.
Sometimes when it’s a negative there can be a positive outcome one of the last things me and lo talked about is having the family come out for K3 birthday and even though it was hard to continue to celebrate his birthday it was bitter sweet but it was good to see everyone come together again.. I just want that same energy to be for the next generation and my little cousins #heyfriend ðŸ’œðŸ’œ
The entire Braxton family, including Evelyn, was present for little K3's birthday celebration, which was postponed around August.
