Netflix has just released its latest romantic comedy, Falling Inn Love, staring Christina Milian, and the actress is dishing about her co-stars…both hunky and hairy, according to a report from Entertainment Weekly.
The movie follows Milian’s Gabriela, who ends up leaving San Francisco for Auckland, New Zealand, to start over after she loses her job and her current relationship with her boyfriend. Following a night of drinking, Gabriela receives an email urging her to enter a sweepstakes to win an inn located in New Zealand. Small spoiler alert – she wins the giveaway and soon travels to a small Auckland town, where she realizes her dream inn is actually a dilapidated structure and home to a friendly goat named Gilbert. Despite the setback, Gabriela decides to stick around and renovate the inn with the help of a local carpenter, Jake, played by Adam Demos.
Jake and Gabriela later develop romantic feelings for each other, but the blossoming romance is soon uprooted when Gabriela’s ex shows up to rekindle their relationship.
While chatting with Entertainment Weekly, Milian shared what it was like working with Demos.
“He and I had great chemistry on screen and he’s just such a cool guy,” she said. “Having somebody that’s just so nice, appreciative and has such good energy is infectious. It’s a good reminder that your mood sets off a lot of other people’s moods, you know?”
And the actress didn’t forget to mention her other co-star, Gilbert, who managed to become one of the movie’s most memorable characters.
“Gilbert’s a cutie. Goats are surprisingly calm! We were just cracking up the whole time; they were probably looking at me like, ‘Who’s this idiot?’ Goats are super chill.”

Pinch me please. ???????? People!! Prayer is so real… just wanna say I’m so unbelievably humbled and thankful to have this opportunity. As I watched the movie last night I said to myself “Damn! @Netflixfilm execs, these producers, @MarVistaent all trusted me to be the star of their movie ????” honestly this speaks to me at the highest level. You have no idea. So “thank you.” Been in entertainment my entire life & can only hope to inspire others to continue to follow their dreams. I’m literally grateful for every project I work on. This was a fun one and I’m happy to make the ???? feel good with entertainment!

Milian also talked about her favorite moments of the film, which include a scene that required her to belt out ’90s hip-hop lyrics with Demos. While Jake and Gabriela are driving around, Freak Nasty’s “Da’ Dip” begins to play on the radio. The couple starts making fun of the song, but eventually sing along to the catchy tune.
As for Milian’s off-screen life, the actress is expecting a child with partner, Matt Pokora, as previously reported by The Inquisitr.
The couple made the announcement by posting identical photos on social media. In the photos, Milian can be seen standing next to Pokora, who’s holding a photo of a sonogram with one hand while his other hand is resting on her hip. The couple later shared photos from a gender reveal party, letting the world know that they’re expecting a baby boy.
Falling Inn Love is available to stream on Netflix now.
