"I'm a little bit more blunt and I'm a little less naive when it comes to love. I think love has been my biggest lesson in my twenties and also just learning how to be myself and grow into my own shell without having to try and rebel, you can do it in a way different manner. Communication is everything so I learned how to communicate really well now that I've ended my twenties and gone into my thirties," says Milian.

Sounds like a great attitude.

Milian was also spotted several days ago at a Pampers party in New York with her 18-month-old daughter Violet, where she told BET some thoughts about motherhood.

"It's important I think for a mom who has babies to still get dressed up every day; you feel good and it pushes you forward as a mom. It's hard and I know you're tired, but at some point it's great to put the makekup on again, put on the heels."

And as for love, Christina (whose marriage to The-Dream only lasted from Sept. 2009 to July 2010) says, "I think I'll get married again. I'm going to take my time though this time. It won't be engaged in a month and married over night. But, who's to say! You never know."

Happy Birthday, Christina!
