For new mom Christina Milian, the past year has been nothing but exciting. In September of 2009, the 28-year-old singer married her then boyfriend, producer The Dream, and shortly thereafter revealed that she was pregnant with her first child.
“It was exciting! I’ve always kind of played everything safe, and last year was the year that I just went with the flow. I said ‘whatever God has meant for me, I’m just gonna go for it,’ and I didn’t question a thing. [Now] I have a beautiful daughter,” Christina tells Latina magazine.
Violet Madison Nash is now three months old and is already forming words.
“She’s amazing! She’s 3 months old now. I’m so happy I have her. I love dressing her up, and she’s getting bigger and doing lots of different things now. She talks a lot! She hasn’t said any words yet, but she’ll just sit there saying “Blah blah blah blah…” trying to form words. And last night, I tickled her and she laughed out loud for the first time,” She says.
So what fitness advice does the svelte new mom have for other moms?
“I would say definitely continue to work out. Get started slowly: walk a lot, drink a lot of water. And breast feeding is amazing for the body. It burns like 500 more calories!”
