Say what you want about Christina Aguilera, but I, for one, appreciate her quite a bit. I mean, she avoided the “five year career plan” that most pop stars follow, when they are big for a bit and then quickly fade in obscurity. Between weight gains and great runs on popular shows and going a little extreme and then pulling it back, she has managed to keep herself in the limelight for a long time now. Seems her most recent aspect of life she has been focusing on is family. What stands as further testimony to that is the fact that Christina Aguilera is expecting another child.
This news just on the heels of the fact she is finally engaged to her longtime boyfriend, Matt Rutler. The two announced the news this weekend, and it seems they could not be happier. Many of you remember, Aguilera has a son with her ex, and this will be her second child. First with her fiance’ though.
Come on, someone needs to say this. If you saw this image of her right now back in her Xtina days, you would have never thought it possible. She went very dark, got very edgy, and got very salacious. But remember, in pop music, it is all about image. For a long time she wanted an edgy image, and how she is now proves that it was all just an image. Just like the rest of us, she just wants a normal life, a family, and a decent job. Three things she seems to have.
A huge congrats to Christina and her Fiance Matt on this epic news. Wishing them all the best and continued success and love in the future. Love can be a tough undertaking, but is well worth it.
