Towards the end of 2011, Dev took an extended break to prepare for the birth of her first child, Emilia Lovely, but now she’s back and more motivated than ever!
Last month, MTV aired a special about Dev’s journey, which put a spotlight on her baby’s birth defect, gastroschisis. It’s a condition where the infant’s intestines stick outside of the body.
Emilia Lovely required lots of surgery and recovery time, but for now, it appears the little one is healthy and happy.
Many people would be intimidated to share these difficult moments on screen, but Dev wanted to show her fans an in-depth look at her life.
“I loved it, I did, ” she told Carson this morning. “I think it got across how hard I work and everything I was doing with my family and my baby and I think it did justice, for sure.”
Now that Emilia Lovely is on the mend, it has allowed Dev to get back into the swing of things. She started touring the United States after releasing her debut album, The Night The Sun Came Up, this past March.
“It’s been great. It’s so much fun. I missed it, for sure. But yeah, it’s awesome. I was in a bus for like a month and a half. I brought the baby and she was great. Yes, I brought the baby in the tour bus and I even got her soundproof headphones for when she comes into the venue.”
“I’m going to be performing [on Sunday], I think it’s the AT&T mainstage, 9:30 p.m.”
“Karmin! I’m excited to see their set. I’ve seen them in the past couple of shows and they’re great people, so I’m excited.”
For those of you interested in checking out LA Pride this weekend, the festival kicks off at noon on Saturday, the parade begins at 11 a.m. on Sunday, and Dev takes the stage at on Sunday at 9:30 p.m. For more information, go to LAPride.org.
