Sure, it’s another story about a celebrity dropping her baby weight at warp-speed, but Christina Milian doesn’t thank pricey personal trainers or private chefs for getting her pre-baby body back. Milian’s weight loss secret? Her mother.
Singer Christina Milian gained around 45 pounds while pregnant with her daughter Violet, and just a few months later, with the help of her mother, Carmen, has lost almost all of it. Milian, 29, told UsMagazine.com that her mom deserves a lot of the credit for slimmer shape. “…she cooked me a lot of raw vegetables and raw salads and proteins — and it worked! I also drank a lot of water.”
It hasn’t been the best year for Milian, however. Despite the joyous birth of their daughter in February, Milian and her husband, music producer The Dream, have since split, something Milian says she also leaned on her mom to get through.
“I have a very supportive family, so between my mother and my sisters, they are helpful,” she said.
It’s important to take care of yourself, inside and out, and Milian seems to be putting her health first, even in tough times. Keep setting that great example for your daughter, Christina!
