Actress Christina Milian is calling raising her newborn son with Matt Pakora “amazing.” Milian and Pakora became parents in January.
It was only months later that COVID-19 forced everyone into their homes. And while Milian never could have guessed that this is how her son’s first months of life would be, she’s still loving every minute of it.
While participating in E!’s Moms in the Moment series, she opened about the unique situation.
“It’s been an absolute blessing. I couldn’t have asked for a better time for this to be happening to be honest with you. I think it was going to be more challenging if I went straight back to work because there would have been a sense of guilt that would really overcome me of not being able to have that time with my baby so this couldn’t have come at a better time. A week after having the baby, I was getting calls about auditions…and I have that hustle mentality in me and I don’t want to burn out in doing too much.”
And while this global pandemic has been a weird and unprecedented time for everyone, Milian admits that being with each other in quarantine has allowed “her boyfriend to be incredibly hands-on.”
“I’m grateful for the family bonding time,” Milian, who is also a mom to a daughter named Violet, said. “That is probably the biggest blessing that has ever happened. I’m grateful for Matt. As a new dad, he would have been working and on tour. This means so much for us.”
And in an effort to stay on track and schedule at home, the mom said she has relied on workouts, eating right, and make sure they stay on track with at-home learning.
“One of the best and most rewarding things to ever happen is being a mom and I don’t want to take that for granted.”
And her advice to other parents in quarantine right now, just stay strong and do the best you can.
