Christina Milian, start of The Voice celebrity mom to 2-year-old daughter Violet recently spoke about her hopes for her daughter.
During an interview with Houston’s 97.9?s radio host JJ, she said, “I really would like for her to have a father in her life. I’ve come to the realization that I have to be a 150 – 200 percent mom for her. It’s not about finances. No, it’s about spending time.”
Of her split from The Dream just five months after the then couple welcomed their daughter, Christina said, “All I care about is my daughter. When it comes to the case of parenting and having another parent, I really would like for her to have a father in her life. And I wasn’t really happy at the moment and I’m still not in the best case (scenario). I’m not one of those parents or mothers who say, ‘Oh you can’t spend time,’ or be that way with a baby daddy and try to withhold their children and use that against them… My daughter is a great kid and she has a lot of love around her and some day she is going to have a man in her life that loves her the way I do.”
Christina revealed that her feelings stem largely from her own close relationship with her father when she was growing up. She said, “I remember what it was like as a child being raised by my dad and it meant something to me. And he and I actually had an off time when I was a teenager because he had left us for a while but he came back and he’s back in my life and I’m so thankful because he meant a lot to me. So, I just would like that for (Violet).”
