The new arrival is the second child for Aguilera, and her first with fiancé Matt Rutler. The two revealed that they were expecting in February, a month after getting engaged. They’ve been dating since 2010 , when they met on the set of the movie Burlesque, where Rutler was working as a production assistant. Aguilera also has a six-year-old son named Max with her ex-husband, music executive Jordan Bratman. The new parents have not yet announced the name of their baby girl.
Shortly before revealing her big news at the beginning of the year, Aguilera collaborated with Lady Gaga on an alternate version of Gaga’s Artpop single “Do What U Want,” with Aguilera replacing R. Kelly on the hook.
More recently, she made a splash with a nude photo shoot for V Magazine, while very much unmistakably pregnant. “As a woman, I’m proud to embrace my body through all stages of life, staying fearless and confident in surrendering to the unknowns the future has in store,” she told the magazine.
The new mom is taking some time off from her judging role on The Voice, but plans to return to the show for its eighth season. She also told V that she’s working on a new album, and posted a photo to Instagram showing herself at work recording something. “Baby girl getting first listen to what mama’s been creating in the studio,” she wrote in the caption.
