Christina Milian says that her daughter Violet is very excited to become a big sister. The singer and actress shares the adorable little girl with her ex, The Dream, but is expecting her new bundle of joy with her current boyfriend, French singer and television star Matt Pokora.
Speaking to Us Weekly, Christina says that her 9-year-old daughter is very excited about her new role in her life. Even though she and her sibling are going to be about a decade apart in age, that won’t stop her from being as hands-on as she possibly can as a big sister. Plus, Violet has plenty of experience in the sibling department, as she has several from her father’s side of the family.
“She has several siblings from her dad’s side, [but] now she gets to be the boss and in control when it comes to me, so she’s excited about it,” the Love Don’t Cost A Thing actress, 37, told Us Weekly at the Weedmaps Museum of Weed grand opening on Thursday, August 1. “She’s always rubbing my belly now. She thinks it’s gonna be a boy. So she already has her dibs in for that, so we’ll see.”
Christina added that she and Matt don’t know the sex of their baby yet but that they plan on finding out in a few weeks. The couple began dating back in 2017 and this will be the first child for the French singer and songwriter.
The couple first shared their pregnancy news on Instagram for their fans over the weekend. Posting a photo of their sonogram, they captioned it with, “New Release 2020.” Matt added that he was excited to become a father.
Earlier this year Christina made it no secret that she was looking to get pregnant a second time around. In fact, she did say in an interview with the publication that she was hoping to start a family with her boyfriend. Little did she know that her dream would end up coming true sooner rather than later!
However, Christina also did say that she wanted to have a small family. That’s because she knows just how much work it takes to raise a child, and especially as a working mom in Hollywood. She explained, “I know that I just want to be able to experience each child, which is a gift. I definitely want to have another child in the future. I don’t know when it would be, but I kind of feel like because I know I want two, I know that whenever it happens, I’ll be ready! I’ll let God handle that!”
