Christina Aguilera has had a busy few weeks. She got engaged to Matthew Rutler on a romantic holiday around Valentine’s Day! Not surprisingly the singer announced the news on Twitter with a photo of her brand-new fiance and giant rock. The statement was simply: “He asked and I said……”
He people confirmed the engagement to People, telling the magazine, “They’re very much in love and are really excited to take this next step!” Rutler, is a film producer who has dated Christina for over three years. He asked her to marry him in Hawaii.
“Matt spent over a year designing the ring with the ring designer to represent their three-year journey together as a couple,” the source said. “He has been planning this for a while and was just waiting for the right time—the ring has been done for months. Every single placement of each stone has a reason and meaning.”
Since then we have now heard from several people that they’re also expecting a baby!
Aguilera is already mother to 6-year-old Max, her son from her first marriage to Jordan Bratman. She’s gushed about her son in the past, on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, saying, “He’s the love of my life, and I adore him. He’s such a character, and he’s so happy and at the end of the day, that’s what’s most important.” We always knew that The Voice judge wanted have another child, and we’re so happy that her dream is coming true!
With that, we have to wonder how her pregnancy affects her engagement. Aguilera is just the latest in a group of engaged-then-pregnant celebs, including Olivia Wilde and Ginnifer Goodwin. All three of these expectant brides-to-be seem to be waiting to get married until after they give birth, and we’re betting Aguilera will follow suit.
