Christina Milian’s Sister Appears on ‘Botched’ After Traumatic Surgery And Death Of Her Newborn Left Her Scarred

It’s been four years since fans of Cuban-American singer Christina Milian watched as her younger sister Danielle experience the heartbreaking experiencing no mother should have to bare. After weeks of anticipation on Millian’s TV show at the time, and nine months in real life, Danielle gave birth to a son who had been diagnosed with omphalocele, only to watch him die hours later. It was a harrowing moment for the Milian family and their fans and while 5 years have passed, Danielle is still very much scarred from the experience.

Her recent appearance on the show “Botched,” revealed just how much.

During her appearance on the show, Milian opened up about the emotional and physical scars she was left behind after the death of her child.

Danielle Milian has dealt with some unfortunate medical problems in the past. In 2015, Milian gave birth to a baby boy named Richie born with Omphalocele, an often fatal condition where interior organs form on the outside of the body. Unfortunately, Richie died a few hours after being born. The traumatic experience still impacts her to this day. When Dr. Dubrow warned her that the tummy tuck would leave her with a scar, Milian responded: “I welcome new scars if they help me get rid of all the old ones with the negative connotations connected to them”.

According to plastic surgeon Dr. Terry Dubrow, Milian’s abdominal wall has been “dramatically separated” from pregnancy and gastric sleeve surgery.

“You’ve had some bad things happen to you so maybe its time for you to have some good things happen to you,” Dr. Dubrow said during the show’s segment after agreeing to help her by providing a full regular tummy tuck.

Twitter, as usual, had quite a few opinions on Danielle Milian’s decision to opt for corrective plastic surgery.

The truth of the matter is, plastic surgery is still a controversial topic.

Some Twitter users were complimentary to the mission of the show, which is to improve people’s lives after they’ve been negatively impacted by poorly-done surgery

i wish all doctors came across so concerned. i find that I’m rushed and feel less important. i kniw we have probelms with the healthcare system. communucation is key but WOW. I LOVE THIS SHOW. Fixng people’s lives one episode at a time!!!! #veryimpressed— Debby G (@DebbyG99285194) March 12, 2019

Women, especially, know the feeling of being neglected by doctors who don’t take our concerns seriously.

Some Latinas found this incident to act as a sort of warning for those considering plastic surgery.

It’s easy to forget that the decision to get plastic surgery shouldn’t be taken lightly–it’s still major surgery that requires anesthesia and weeks of recovery time.

Others want the doctors to spill the tea on which plastic surgeons are the ones botching peoples’ surgeries (and we can’t blame them!)

It’s hard to be confidently make a decision regarding your health and appearance when there are so many cases of plastic surgery gone wrong.

We, for one, hope that Danielle Milian’s surgery went well and that her body brings her nothing but joy from now on.

Kehlani Welcomes Baby Girl After “Hard But Powerful” Unmedicated Home Birth

R&B star Kehlani is a mommy. The singer welcomed her first child, baby girl Adeya, over the weekend.

In an Instagram post on Monday, Lani disclosed that she had an unmedicated home birth, describing the experience as both strenuous and beautiful.

“This weekend our angel arrived healthy & perfect in every way in our bathroom at home,” the 23-year-old crooner captioned a photo of a baby blanket with colorful pine trees. “Unmedicated home birth was the absolute hardest yet most powerful thing I’ve ever done. Thankful beyond words. In love beyond comparison.”

Lani, who had her first baby with guitarist Javie Young-White, talked more about her decision to have a home birth on Twitter.

“All birth is extremely hard and transformative,” she said. “Home birth is a medical decision as is hospital birth, all birth is mind blowing & powerful. … it’s a next level journey whichever way.”

While emphasizing the splendor and power of childbirth, she didn’t deny the physical pain that accompanies it.

“But I hope everyone knows no one can tell me SHIT after that because LORD…next level, no words!”

Lani said she wouldn’t be posting on social media much in order to rest and spend time with her new family but sent her gratitude to her fans for their love, support and well wishes.

Days before the birth of her child, Lani released the music video for “Butterfly,” which appears on the singer’s While We Wait mixtape that dropped last month.

Watch the video for “Butterfly” below:

Cardi B Mentions Her Daughter Kulture in Her Newest Song and Our Hearts Just Exploded

Cardi B Mentions Her Daughter Kulture in Her Newest Song and Our Hearts Just Exploded

Cardi knows how to multitask. In her the Dominican-Trinidadian rappers latest single, which dropped on Tuesday, October 23rd, the “I Like It Rapper” proves that when she makes moves they’re all about the mommy and money profits.  In her latest song, aptly titled “Money”, the Bronx-born rapper avows an un-apologetically indulgent celebration of the things that matter most to her in life.

Among this list is “checks” “boardin’ jets”, “morning sex” and of course her newborn daughter Kulture.

Cardi’s new song “Money” is the kind of quality banger we expect to get from her.

The charismatic MC rattles of her verses business as usual, flexing about her bank account and her love of dinero. Still, she takes the listener by surprise in her final verse when she changes the lyric from “But nothing in this world that I like more than checks” to “But nothing in this world that I like more than Kulture”. Although it’s a small nod to the massive change of becoming a mother that’s she’s experienced, that doesn’t make it any less powerful. In this verse, Cardi displays that she’s the same person we’ve grown to love, but with a different, more mature, even more responsible outlook on life.

As usual, Cardi B stans on Twitter were all about her new single.

Each time @iamcardib comes out with a song I feel like I relate to it more than the last.

“Money” has reached us on a whole other level.

In the past, Cardi has made no secret of the financial struggle she endured before finding success, telling stories of how she felt compelled to stay in an abusive relationship because of her financial situation: “I was dictated to, and had to do things I didn’t want to do because I was living under a man’s roof…and I didn’t have money”. Additionally, she’s talked about the struggle her parents went through raising her on a limited income, stating, “I have real good parents, they poor….They real good people and what not, I was just raised in a bad society”.

This isn’t the first time Cardi has been upfront about how much money means to her.

It’s hard to believe that Cardi’s chart-topping single “Bodak Yellow” was released in June 2017, just a little over a year ago. Since then, she’s released her incredibly successful debut album “Invasion of Privacy,” been on the cover of Rolling Stone, been the first female rapper to have two number one singles, and of course, gotten married and had a baby. Recently, she took to Instagram Live to discuss the work she’s doing on her latest album and how she hopes to finish at least ten more songs before the year’s end. With a drive like this, it’s no wonder she’s sometimes referred to as the hardest-working rapper in the hip-hop game today.

As for arguably the most important job she’s had so far, that of a new momm, Cardi’s journey has just begun. She recently told Jimmy Kimmel that she plans on having three or four children because she’s loved the experience so much. As for us, we’re most excited that Cardi is finally able to break the cycle of poverty she was born into and provide for her daughter in a way that her parents were unfortunately never able to do.
