Last week, R&B singer/songwriter The-Dream told MTV News that his baby with wife Christina Milian would be arriving over the weekend. He was almost right: Milian gave birth to daughter Violet on Friday, Milian’s rep confirmed.
“It’s a girl,” The-Dream said excitedly last week. “Violet will be her first name. I’m not telling you the middle name; you’re gonna get me in trouble.”
Still, The-Dream said it’s business as usual in their household. “I’ve been working like a regular person works in America. They have jobs whether someone’s pregnant or not,” he laughed.
The singer said he’s finished recording his upcoming album, Love King (the title track of which recently leaked), and said the song isn’t about being a ladies’ man, like many believe. “On ‘Love King,’ I’m talking about those girls that like my music and how they’re everywhere,” he said. “They’re the girls in church, girls in the club, in Miami — my music’s everywhere. I don’t mean that I have girls everywhere; it’s not literal, but women do gravitate to my songs.”
The-Dream is currently preparing to shoot two clips for his single: the original version, featuring Def Jam labelmate Young Jeezy, followed by a remix with Ludacris. “We’re shooting the videos in two weeks,” he said. “The remix to ‘Love King’ with Ludacris, which is crazy, it sounds like a ’90s Jodeci remix, with their type of big harmonies on the hook. You’ll get what I’m saying when you hear it. It’s the swing.”
