Anyone who has caught a glimpse of Christina Milian’s reality show knows that the singer’s daughter, Violet, is her inspiration. The celebrity tells FOX411 that her little one is the reason that she works so hard to be successful.
“She’s my sunshine,” gushes Milian. “She’s the reason why I work as hard as I do now. Sometimes I’m extremely busy and we don’t have enough time in a day to spend as I wish, but she’s understanding that mommy has to make sacrifices in order for her to have a great life.”
Christina further explains, “When we are together I make the most of it, and that’s what is important — making our time quality. My nanny, family and friends are also very helpful. But I mentally prepare myself to have as much energy as possible to fulfill everything I need to in a day.”
Having enough energy requires healthy habits, which is something else that Violet helps her mom achieve. “My daughter Violet inspires me to stay in shape,” shares Christina. “She’s really smart. She tells me not to eat French fries – she’ll say, ‘Mom, it’s junk food.'”
Violet is Christina Milian’s only child with ex-husband Terius Nash, a.k.a. The-Dream. She celebrated her fifth birthday last month.
