Since welcoming daughter Violet Madison in February, new mom Christina Milian has gotten her pre-baby body back — at the expense of her backside curves!

“I do kickboxing, running, going up hills … I started to lose my booty so I have to go up hills now,” the singer/actress said Sunday at a press conference for the American Music Awards.

“I want my butt back. You gotta keep the butt.”

That said, for Milian, the rewards of motherhood are endless. With Violet beginning to turn her baby babble into words, her emerging voice is music to her proud mother’s ears.

“Any time I repeat something over and over she repeats it also, so that’s cool,” Milian, 29, reveals. “She knows when to say ‘mama,’ which is great. I love that.”

But the greatest gift of all? “Seeing that smile” on her baby girl, raves the songstress.

“When I look at her it is a reflection that I am doing the right thing so that is the very rewarding part,” she says, “knowing that she is smiling and happy.”
