Exclusive: Catching Up With Christina Milian (and Baby Violet! )

We talked mommy style, Beyoncé, marriage and more with the singer. See what she had to say.

Christina Milian has her hands full with her 18-month-old daughter Violet! We caught up with the singer last night (September 21) at a Pampers Cruisers’ 3-Way Fit Launch “Play-A-Palooza,” but if you blinked you might have missed her little tot as she bounced around getting her face painted, meeting Sesame Street’s Oscar the Grouch, and generally running around with a bunch of other kids that packed the play date at New York’s Dylan’s Candy Bar.
“She’s running around everywhere, believe me she’s very active!” Christina says of her cutie, but even though the singer has a lot on her plate, juggling motherhood and a career (yes, there’s a new album in the works), she still manages to stay fly.  Forget soccer mom jeans, Christina showed up to the kiddie party in curve-hugging Denim Raven jeans, with a red Forever 21 top, gold necklace and some serious Wild Pair heels.
You played out your pregnancy in front of the cameras in some cute looks. Do you have any good style tips for expecting moms?
You know, I wish I would’ve known about half the stuff I find now for maternity wear. I found out that H&M has a maternity area, The Gap has a maternity area and they have really cute clothes, which is really difficult to find when you’re pregnant. I kind of wore the same thing over and over again. I had one pair of jeans from Target that I wore. Speaking of Target, when I was breastfeeding I found the most amazing bra at Target that made it easier to breast feed my daughter. Unfortunately you can never find it because every woman buys it immediately, but it’s the best gift you can give an expecting mom.
What about style tips for new moms?
It’s hard because you don’t know which size to buy yet! You’re like, ‘I can’t buy these yet because I’m still huge.’ But you know, just be confident in what you wear. It’s important, I think, for a mom who has babies to still get dressed up every day; you feel good and it pushes you forward as a mom. It’s hard and I know you’re tired, but at some point, it’s great to put the makekup on again, put on the heels.
Are there any clothing brands or products you love for Violet?
I do love Johnson and Johnson and the Baby Oil Gel that she uses. I put it on her when she gets out of the bath and give her a massage and stretch her out — a little baby workout for her. It’s perfect. We do everything from GAP Kids to Target to Gucci. A little of everything. She doesn’t have a lack when it comes to fashion.
It sounds like she’s got a good mix of high and low brands.
Yep, just like her mama.
What do you think of Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s baby news?
I’m so excited! I’m really excited for Beyoncé. She’s worked her butt off for so many years. This is going to be beyond anything she’s every achieved. It’s going to be amazing.
Do you want more kids? Do you want to get married again?
I do! I want to have more kids someday and I think I’ll get married again. I’m going to take my time though this time. It won’t be 'engaged in a month and married over night.' But, who’s to say! You never know. I never thought at one time that I would’ve gotten married before and had a child, so you never know what the future will bring.
