YMCMB songstress Christina Milian seems to have much to celebrate these days. Between her steady gig on “The Voice,” her new record label home and her daughter Violet among other things, CMili is in a pretty good place.
She recently stopped by Rolling Out magazine to chat it up about all of the above and more. Check out a few interview excerpts below:

On finding out she was pregnant with daughter Violet:
“I wasn’t scared. I was excited when I found out I was pregnant. Of course, when you find out that first time, you’re like ‘Oh my God! My life is changing. From here on out my life has changed.’ And then you realize that miracle that is inside of you and what’s happening. Even the ups and downs outside my pregnancy, I enjoyed each and every moment of my pregnancy. And the second that I had her, I knew that it was meant to be. Like I never questioned God and I knew that everything was happening for a reason.
Now if you had asked me before I was pregnant and before I was married to The-Dream, I thought that I would never have a baby at this time in my life. But everything fell into place,” she says.
On her relationship with her daughter:
“I’m just thinking about her all the time,” says Milian. “I’m thinking about her even though I have to work all the time. … And I’m very fortunate that I work in an industry where family is more accepted now and I have a family that supports me. Sometimes I need her. When I’m tired and I see her, then I’m awake again. And I act like a kid with her.
She is like a ball of fire, a spark of light that when the moment I see her, she lets me know how much she loves me,” says the proud mom.
On being a part of YMCMB:
“I have a good team around me. With this album I have Young Money and this is great because they are the first team of people that understood that I needed a family, that I don’t feel like I’m out here on my own. There’s a difference with being with a label and being out on your own, like, ‘hey, I run this and no one else is with me.’
Let’s be real; there’s nothing better than having a family to back you up. And that’s how Young Money is. And we have the best of the best. We have Drake, we have Nicki, we have Tigga. We have so many people on that label so that when the music comes, it can only make it better,” says Milian.
Speaking of celebrating, CMili also flaunted some very large ring-finger bling on her Instagram a few days ago and it looks to now be engaged to her boo-thang Jas Prince. Hit the flip to peep pics of her rock, as well as a candid shot of the place he may have proposed…
