Dominique


What did motherhood change in Dominique?

A lot! Motherhood made me a more responsible person regarding my image for my daughters sake. Now I prefer to stay at home with Delara, who is my life! Even when I am sad or not in the mood, I find my happiness and comfort with Delara. Now I want to work and succeed for her and become the best version of myself, all for her. I even buy her jewelry and stuff for when she gets older!


Whats the hardest thing about being a celebrity mother?

I think its a very nice thing for her, she finds it really cool and shes very proud of me.But the hard part is that she doesnt get to live her childhood properly! A lot of children get closer to her because I am a celebrity, even people stop her just to ask her questions about meand that makes her feel that shes different from other kids! I am a normal mother at home, but on stage I leave Dominique the mother at home and become Dominique the celebrity. If I am shooting and Delara isnt with me;I am not a housewife,I am asingle star!


Did your beauty and fitness routine change after giving birth?

Not at all! After giving birth, I lost my weight in six months. As I grow older, I only feel younger because of my daughter! I take good care of myself; nothing has changed in my looks, weight or anything!I am still the girl I used to be before marriage.Believe it or not, a lot of people even dont believe that I have a daughter.


Do you have any advice for working mothers?

I advice working mothers to never give up! Women need to separate their business lives from their family lives and stay as strong individuals and get the best of both worlds.We are such brave and talented individuals who can easily manage multi-tasking!


What common features do you share with Delara?

Delara resembles me in almost everything! However the other day she told me that we dont have the same hair color.My daughter likes to copy me in everything and it is such a sweet thing to find a mini Dominique in her. She even inherited my artistic side and my talents, and I adore her for it!


Whats your super mama tip to our readers?

To see your children as your future! It is really important to take care of their upbringing, education and how theyll turn out to be because children represent our future.


Do you consider yourself a cool or a strict mother?

I am both!My daughter likes to play with me and she considers me her friend and secret keeper.She loves that I am always creating for her a fashionable world,suit for a princess! But I turn into a strict mother for her own sake, especially when shes not eating properly or not doing her homework!


What do you do in your me time?

I follow up with my fans on social media, watch TV, dance, swim and play tennis.


What drives you crazy about your daughter?

Delara is very mature for her ageand she has a huge artistic side, even more than me. She uses selfie sticks and cameras to create youtube videos like experts!


What are the lessons you hope she learns from your life choices?

I want to teach her to be strong, independent and wise enough to deal with any bad influences that may harm her.


What are the lessons you learnt from your mother and try to apply while raising Delara?

My mother taught me how to be strong, firm and serious when it comes to work.How to be ambitious and to rule my life like a boss!My mother is a very strong person when it comes to her relationships with others and how she solves problems. She raised me up to be a mature person, to love people all around me and to live my life simply and lively, yet I am crazy when it comes to my art!
