I am going to be a mother. Its the greatest gift of my life. I am tremendously fortunate to have a loving family, and a perfect husband to support me in my choice to be a mother. My life has been a series of coincidental blessings. I wouldn't say that it has been a perfect road, however I would say that it has brought me to what feels like a perfect destination.

I married my best friend despite our drastically different upbringing, and our misguided understanding of what normalcy meant. I had the courage to follow my heart in a world where people get caught up in the logistics.
If I could pin point utter and complete happiness, it would be me today. I feel that I have everything. Does this mean I have a mansion in the hills? No. Does it mean that I have fulfilled my aspirations of being a successful artist? Maybe.
What my happiness means to me is that I have followed my heart, and allowed the beautiful spirit to guide me.
My life mission is to convert negative energy into positive energy. Its to come into a place where I can choose to be happy no matter what the given circumstances are. I hope to impact peoples lives in a positive way, and to surround myself and my family with as much beauty and light as possible. As a singer, my goal is to spread love and light. I consider myself a communicator before I am even a technical singer. I also want to be a good mother. A good teacher, and a good partner to my husband. And I am sure our child will teach us just as equally. Those are the things that are important to me.
I haven't documented my pregnancy thus far publicly. Mainly because I am a pretty shy person, although I know thats not how it might seem. I felt that it would be important for me to include the people that have so inspired me in years past. You. So, here is my baby girl all wrapped up in her little cocoon in my belly. She is healthy as far as we know, and very used to her daddy's music as we have been on tour throughout his rise up the charts. In a few weeks Nico Vega will tour for about ten days on the west coast and I am hoping to see some of you.
Thank you for allowing me to share this beautiful experience with all of you. If there is one last thing I would like to leave you with, it is this...

Its easy to find problems to focus on. Its also easy to take issue with every menial misfortune in life. The challenge is to find and experience happiness. The trick is that its not something that you must find. Its something you already have. You either choose it, or you choose otherwise. That is how I became happy. I chose it. And this little girl is every bit a part of that bliss.
Love Aja

  10. My husband and I recently saw Nico Vega opening for Imagine Dragons. The guy sitting next to us told us that you are Dan's wife. And then I saw you perform. Wow! My husband and I raced home afterwards to find your songs on itunes. Reading your blog makes me so incredibly inspired. Thank you for sharing you. xoxo

  12. Hi, I am a Conservative Christian and I absolutely LOVE your song Beast. The vid of you doing it is absolutely wonderful performance art. Kinda like Ziggy Stardust meets Brandon Flowers. The screaming and the beat of the song - if you could make more songs like that, I would absolutely be your greatest fan for life. Hope the babe is well. God Bless you.

  15. No offense, but yes you are generalising too much about women.
    I don't want children. Never have.
    Having a "mothering" instinct is not intrinsic nor required to be a woman.
    Also, men have a "biological clock" too.

    I'm fully with you on the pr0n opinions.

  16. I have been an RN for 24 years. Many of those years I have had the privilege to be a witness to families being born in Labor and Delivery units. Sometimes, in labor, the fetal heart tracing does not look well and the baby's heart beat may show signs that the baby is pinching it's umbilical cord or laying on the cord while in the mother's womb. At this point it is common practice to have the mom turn over and switch positions. I have been continually amazed how many times over the years the mom has said, "Yes, that is a side I do not feel comfortable on when I'm at home. The baby likes the other side!" Even without technology, without equipment, a mother's love and intuition tell her what her baby needs. What a beloved opportunity to get to know the worth of another soul, by having it grow within you so close to your heart!

  17. Motherhood is instict, but aja is artist, so she doesnt see the things scientifically, if u take motherhood down to just instict, then life wont be a beautiful thing .♥
