Christina Milian developed her love of travel from her Cuban parents! Adorably, the mother-of-three continues to share her love for traveling across the globe with her singer-songwriter husband Matt Pokora (M. Pokora). The star recently chatted with BET Lifestyle exclusively about why she loves traveling with her hubby, along with their favorite kind of date night. Read about it below!
“We knew all the states, cities, and countries,” Milian explains about growing up with a globe in her home. “My dad would point at something and then we'd have to go to the library to learn about it. Seeing the world on a globe made the world look huge, but actually, the world is much smaller than I thought it is now that I traveled.”
Whenever the actress travels with her husband Matt, they always ensure to engulf themselves in the culture of the place they are visiting. She cites traveling as a key to keeping their relationship fun and spontaneous. “Once a month, we try to [travel and] stay at least a day or a day and a half. We don't go too far away from the kids, but we like to do something for ourselves. We need that time to just be adults and not have to worry about anything,” she explains.
She continues, “Every time we do it, it is always really refreshing. I love to travel and I love spontaneity. Thank goodness he has that in him because it's a good fit for the both of us.”
As for their perfect date night, Milian explains that it can be a toss-up between a double date night with friends and a relaxing couple’s massage. “We like going to dinners with friends that have kids because we have somebody to have conversations with. We’re together all the time—literally all the time—so it's nice to have somebody else that relates to us. We also get massages together.”
The lovebirds also enjoy a simple date at the movies. “Sometimes we go to the movies too. That’s a nice date, but sometimes we fall asleep so I'm just gonna say dinner is better,” she playfully reveals.
We are glad that the couple, who tied the knot in 2020, continuously find ways to bond and strengthen their relationship!
