Celebrity mommy Christina Milian has changed her approach to the holiday season after giving birth to her first child, Violet Nash.
Violet, whose father is Christina’s ex-husband The Dream, will celebrate her second Christmas this year.
"I’m way more into it now," Christina told S2S. Christina said that her mom usually has Christmas on lock with the decorations and trimmings, but not this year. "This year I bought decorations before Halloween."
Her newfound holiday cheer may get channeled into her music in the future. "I would love to do a Christmas album," Christina said. But the Christmas album project will have to wait. The "Dip it Low" singer is trying to pull together a new R&B album first.
She left all of the music created for her unreleased 2009 album, Elope, behind. That album, produced by The Dream, was scheduled for release on his Radio Killa Records in a joint deal with MySpace Records. "I’m in a new place," Christina told S2S. Those songs don’t fit where she’s at in life anymore, so she is making all new music with new producers such as Young Yonny (Trey Songz, Lil Wayne).
This holiday season will be Christina’s last moment to rest before she begins what promises to be a big year for her. She returns to the spolight as the Social Media Correspondent for NBC’s "The Voice," premiering after the Super Bowl.
Her favorite Christmas tradition? Cooking in the kitchen with family.
