The baby rumors have found their way to pop star Christina Aguilera. A new report from Radar Online claims that the 37-year-old is expecting her third child thanks to an exclusive inside scoop from an anonymous source.
This would be the second child for Aguilera with her fiancé Matt Rutler. They already share a 3-year-old daughter named Summer, and the Genie in a Bottle singer also has a 10-year-old son named Max from her marriage to Jordan Bratman.
“Christina and Matt have been talking about having a second child for a long time now, and people around them are whispering she’s expecting again,” says the insider.
But, if she is pregnant, it comes during a busy time for Aguilera. She just released her first album in six years — Liberation — and starting in September, she is planning on touring for the first time in a decade.
Apparently, only those closest to the couple know about the pregnancy, and Aguilera is keeping coy about it. But, some have noticed that she has recently started to avoid alcohol and sushi. Plus, she is covering up and glowing.
Another source says that Aguilera has started to gain weight, but it is for all the right reasons, and not because she is eating or drinking too much.
It’s hard to believe, but it has been 16 years since Aguilera released the Dirrty music video, and Billboard magazine recently named it one of the best videos of the 21st century. Dirrty was the lead single from Aguilera’s second album, Stripped, and it represented her transition from bubblegum pop star to a more mature artist.
Aguilera says it her favorite video that she has done because it was freeing, and it was the first song on an album that was about finding her independence and not having a label tell her what to do. She says that she was coming into her own, and the album was also about shedding a skin that she felt wasn’t “real to the person I was growing into.”
The former The Voice coach added that she had a lot of emotions and thoughts that she didn’t feel anyone had expressed, especially from a female perspective. At the time, it was controversial, and Aguilera says that there were straight-laced people opposed to her coming out with that kind of image.
However, she says she needed to express herself, and sexuality has always been something she has been comfortable with expressing. Aguilera added that the female body is something she thinks is beautiful, and it’s about how you own it and not exploiting it for a man’s pleasure.
If you own your body and have confidence, Christina Aguilera says that is empowering.
