*Remember all the weight Christina Milian added before and  after giving birth? Well, it’s gone now. So what’s her secret? No it wasn’t breastfeeding or exercise. She gives the credit to her mother.

The singer gained 45 pounds while she was pregnant with her daughter Violet and dropped it.

“The first month, I lost weight drastically,” said Milian, who gave birth in February (she told Us in April that she’s dropped 27 lbs.). “On top of that, she (her mom) cooked me a lot of raw vegetables and raw salads and proteins — and it worked! I also drank a lot of water.”

Her mother has been supportive even during the split with her baby’s father The Dream.

“I have a very supportive family, so between my mother and my sisters, they are helpful,” she said.

Her daughter is doing “great,” said Milian. “She’s wonderful, as happy as ever, and she’s growing her first two teeth. She is so adorable.”
