16 minutes ago 'We did it again,' she captioned it. Adding '#partyof5'. The family is growing once more just 10 months after Christina welcomed her son Isaiah. Christina is also mum to 10-year-old daughter Violet, who she shares with ex-husband The-Dream. After she shared the surprising announcement on Twitter, her fans rushed to congratulate the happy couple.
Singer Christina Milian hasn't dominated the airwaves this decade as she once did, but her personal life is topping the charts. In 2017 she began dating French singer Matt Pokora, and their relationship first entered the tabloids when the paparazzi spotted the couple getting 'hot and heavy on a yacht' in the French Riviera (via Extra). While it's not clear how the two met, they both worked on The Voice (she was the social media correspondent, he was a coach).
Born Matthieu Totta to professional footballer André Tota, Pokora appeared on the widely popular singing competition show Popstars, which led to his rise to fame with the boy band Linkup (via All Music). After going solo in 2004, Pokora found even greater success in Europe by 'modeling himself on American R&B and pop stars such as Michael Jackson and Usher.' In 2018, the singer's sixth solo album R.E.D. (Rythmes Extrêmement Dangereux) was a massive commercial success and 'gave him his second consecutive number one album in France.'
Despite his growing fame and popularity in his home country, Pokora relocated to Los Angeles to be closer to Christina Milian. In a 2019 interview with Hollywood Life, Milan gushed over her man who put her first. 'I'm really happy with the type of person I'm with. He's honest, and we have a really great relationship,' she said. 'This is different than anything I've ever experienced and I'm really happy that the universe brought us together.' Neither the universe nor hit records in France are going to stand in the way of true love.
On July 28, 2019, the couple announced they are expecting their first child together. 'Cooking up a new release for 2020! What a collaboration!' Milan tweeted, along with a picture of the sonogram. 'The next generation is on the way!,' Pokora tweeted in his native French. 'Legacy on the way!' This isn't Milian's first child — she previously had a daughter with her ex, the producer Terius Youngdell Nash, better known as The-Dream. He famously dumped her while she was pregnant, and their daughter, Violet, was born just six days after their split.

The Falling Inn Love star announced in July that she was pregnant with baby No. 2 after welcoming daughter Violet, now 9, with her ex-husband, Terius Youngdell Nash, also known as The Dream, in 2010. “New release 2020,” the “Dip it Low” singer captioned her baby bump debut at the time. “What a blessing! Let’s do this babe @mattpokora.”
The French songwriter, 34, shared the same picture, writing, “Legacy on the way. #Happyman.”
While Pokora was traveling for work during some of Milian’s pregnancy, she played his music on her budding belly, she told Us Weekly exclusively in September. “I’m reminding the baby of his dad’s voice,” the New Jersey native explained. “It’s nice for a boy to have that masculine touch of melody running through his head. … His dad is gonna be on tour this year, so we’re going to go on tour with him.”
The actress and Pokora were struggling to pick a name for their baby-to-be at the time. “We still haven’t come across anything that we love,” Milian admitted to Us. “We’re, like, definitely back and forth on that one because French accents and English accents don’t sound the same on names. I didn’t care about that, but that’s his thing. I guess in French some things don’t sound as good. So that’s the only thing that gets in the way of finding a name.”
She added, “I’m getting to the point where I’m just going to let him do it. ‘You just come up with the name.’ I’ll just disagree until I agree.”
The Grandfathered alum started dating Pokora in August 2017 and wants to “someday” marry him — but not anytime soon. “It’s not, like, in the near future,” Milian revealed to Us in September. “It’s not, like, the first thing on my checklist. But I am not opposed to it at all.”
