She’s a new mother and one of Australia’s biggest DJs.
And DJ Tigerlily, real name Dara Lawson, has revealed how she juggles her booming music career with her seven-month-old son, Lando.
Speaking to Stellar Magazine on Sunday, Dara, 31, revealed she usually makes work a family affair nowadays.
‘[My son] Lando has come to a couple of gigs with me. My mum comes, too,’ Dara said of juggling her demanding schedule.
Dara, who is married to Scott Lawson, said she just booked her first international gig – with her mother coming along for that set, too.
‘I’ve actually just booked my first international show since having a baby, in the Philippines in December, so Mum is coming with us,’ she said.
She admitted her DJ work is usually done when Lando is asleep, which also helps.
‘Fortunately when I’m doing the forward-facing part of my work, he’s hopefully asleep. I’m feeding him before I leave, going to the club, playing, coming back and feeding him again. It does work,’ she finished.
Posing for Stellar magazine this week, Dara wore baggy forest green pants and a matching jacket along with a canary yellow singlet.
The music producer announced in November that she was expecting her first child in April, sharing a reel to Instagram for the announcement.
‘DISCO BABY – COMING APRIL 2023,’ she captioned the post, revealing in the hashtags that she was 15 weeks along.
Earlier last year, the DJ married her long term partner Scott in a romantic ceremony, exchanging their vows in Sydney’s Duffys Forest.
The pair tied the knot on March 5, surrounded by family and friends.
‘Our dream day, in our dream location, with our most loved friends and family… Scott and I are on cloud 9,’ Tigerlily wrote in her Instagram at the time.
DJ Tigerlily and Scott announced their engagement in March 2021.
