Christina Aguilera’s cute kids! The songwriter has shared so many sweet moments with her two children over the years.
In 2008, the Grammy winner and her then-husband, Jordan Bratman, welcomed their son, Max. While the duo called it quits three years later, the singer subsequently moved on with Matthew Rutler. She gave birth to their daughter, Summer, in 2014.
“We make blended families work,” Aguilera captioned an Instagram post with her ex at the time. “It’s a beautiful thing.”
Prior to the birthday bash, the former couple reunited in 2014 to attend one of Max’s friend’s birthday parties at the beach.
The “Genie in a Bottle” singer was a “very young mom” when she and Bratman welcomed Max, and she doesn’t see herself giving Summer a younger sibling in the future.
“What the universe thinks will be, will be,” Aguilera explained to Haute Living in a September 2019 interview. “Who knows what’s in the future? But as of now, [I’m not planning on more].”
“They give me the opportunity to play and be able to instill and encourage their imaginations,” the actress gushed to the magazine at the time. “You are part of these amazing little people’s lives, and it teaches you patience and teaches you things about yourself that you don’t like, that you want to work on. It is a constant journey of learning. They teach me so much, and they challenge me all the time to be better.”
Max and Summer have influenced “everything [that she’s] decided to do,” Aguilera went on to say, explaining, “I made the decision for quite some time not to tour for a while because I thought it was the best thing to make a more stable, routine life for my children. Even when I took the spot on [The Voice], it wasn’t really something I wanted to pursue. I just decided, ‘It keeps me in L.A. and in a place where I can focus on my kids.’”
