Christina Milian and Baby Violet were spotted at ABC Family’s “25 Days Of Christmas” 2010 Winter Wonderland Event at Rockefeller Center in New York yesterday (December 5, 2010).
She’s faced her fair share of trouble over the past year, with the very public break up with husband The Dream while still pregnant with their child, but it’s looking like things are definitely on the upswing for Christina.
The singer was in New York City promoting her made-for-TV movie Christmas Cupid at the Rock Center Café. Wearing a very flattering deep red dress, the 29-year-old glowed with health and happiness as she held little nine-month-old Violet Nash close by her side.
Little Violet looked equally festive in a matching red dress and Santa hat.
Christina opened up about how she shed the baby fat so quickly after giving birth.
According to the star, breastfeeding and exercise helped her shed some of the 45 pounds she gained while pregnant with daughter Violet. But she said the real secret to her weight loss was the help she got from her mother, Carmen.
She says: ‘The first month, I lost weight drastically.
‘On top of that, she (mom) cooked me a lot of raw vegetables and raw salads and proteins — and it worked! I also drank a lot of water.’
Christina gave birth to daughter Violet Madison Nash in February, and soon after it was revealed she had already split from her husband of ten months. Further shocks were in store, as photographs emerged of him frolicking in the Caribbean sea with his female assistant.
Court documents stated that the marriage was ‘irretrievably broken’, and that ‘there is no hope for reconciliation’. The divorce has since been finalized and the settlement was confidential, but Christina is rumored to have received at least $4 million for parting ways with The Dream.
One things for sure… she looks much better without him.
