OH, BABY! The Voice’s Christina Milian Talks Daughter Violet!By Delaina Dixon | November 8, 2011 | Entertainment
Being a mom is one of the biggest joys and challenges a woman can face. This week the DivaGals pay homage to moms with celebrity interviews and some of the best products for mommies and their babies!
Christina Milian, 30, who just landed a role as the new social media correspondent for NBC’s The Voice, knows how to balance motherhood with a successful career: plan play dates with her 1-year-old daughter Violet.
That’s what Christina was doing when we caught up with the Grammy-nominated singer and her baby girl at Pamper’s “Play-A-Palooza” play date event inside Dylan’s Candy Bar in New York City last month, where the company introduced its newest Sesame Street design. There, Christina told us all about her and Violet’s “Mommy and me” time.
Even with your busy schedule, you find ways to spend a lot of quality time with your daughter.
Yes! We like to do a lot of things and events together because as a parent, you want to keep your kids active. So I do a lot of play dates with her and friends.
What is Violet into these days?
She’s into everything and is everywhere right now. It’s the reason we’re here. Violet does wear Pampers Cruisers ΓÇô she’s 18 months and running around everywhere — and their 3-Way Fit just kind of keeps her mobile. She’s into all these toys and is into Sesame Street major, so they are just perfect.
Is she living up to her namesake? Does she love the color Violet?
She looks good in it. She has some of it on today. I like to put her in the color.
What’s your mommy chic style?
A good pair of jeans and some sneakers. I always have a pair of Jordans somewhere in the back of my car. I have a couple that match with Violet’s. You can always count on a sweater. You never know when you’re going to have to wipe a nose, so those sleeves come in handy.
What’s been the most surprising thing you’ve learned as a mom?
Now that I have a baby, I am way more responsible as I look at the future and her future. I am more focused and more driven because of her.
Your mom is here with you today. What advice did she give you about being a mother?
She said anything that you do now, you’ll have to pay for it through your daughter! I don’t know if that is true. But Violet’s got those teenage years coming, so I’ll have to watch out!
