Christina Milian is a survivor. Not only did she live through a very public (and very scandalous) divorce, but she’s also continued to stay relevant in a business that is quick to move on to the next hot thing. In the newest issue of Latina, the 29-year-old beauty discusses her divorce from The-Dream, her love of motherhood, and what’s next on her horizon.
If you ever had any doubts that you could overcome just about anything, Christina Milian proves that you can bounce back, no matter what.
Check out a sneak preview from Christina Milian’s Latina feature and watch a behind the scenes video from the cover shoot.
On her failed marriage: “No matter what, you can’t change who you are. I know that now. I tried to be someone I wasn’t because I wanted my marriage to work. But ultimately, if it’s not working, it’s not working.”
On the cheating scandal: “I didn’t know anything. But looking back, my gut was telling me something was off. But I thought I could fix it.”
On lessons learned: “I learned a lot about myself this year. I learned what I can handle. I learned how much I can take. I learned who I am and what I will accept for myself and my daughter.”
On becoming a mom: “Being a new mother definitely makes me feel so much sexier than ever before. There’s a certain responsibility that I carry being a mom that makes me feel very confident and so blessed. Being a mom is the best thing that’s ever happened to me.”
On what’s next: “I feel brand new. I’ve been to hell and back, but I survived. I’m stronger for it and now I’m ready for the next phase of my life.”
