Christina Aguilera and husband Jordan Bratman celebrate the arrival of baby son Max.
The songstress conceived during the U.S. leg of her tour, 3 months earlier than anticipated. She and her music producer husband, Jordan, 30, met in Atlanta in 2002 and married in November 2005.
The couple has just bought Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne’s former home and major renovations are underway. Max’s nursery is decorated with specially designed Japanese cartoon wallpaper and is furnished with a gigantic moon - a prop from Christina’s recent tour.
Christina gave birth on January 12th in Los Angeles by planned C-section claiming she ‘didn’t want any surprises’. Speaking to Hello! magazine she said: “I’d heard horror stories about tearing! I really wanted a calm and peaceful environment. It was just a really nice relaxing way to give birth.”
As Jordan is Jewish they also arranged a bris, the Hebrew baby naming and circumcision ritual ceremony.
Jordan was keen to film the birth but doctors restricted him from filming the C-section procedure. He managed to turn the camera on just before they delivered Max. Christina recalled: “Jordan wasn’t squeamish at all. He had the video camera ready to go.”
“The most reassuring thing for me was hearing that first beautiful cry. I just welled up with tears.”
She added: “We can’t stop staring at him. We study him, he studies us back. It’s just an unbelievable experience, the whole journey. It’s just a beautiful time in our lives.”
“Max is going to grow up in a house where there’s lots of love. And lots of lessons will be taught based on being thankful and appreciative.”
Christina wants a big family and says: “We even look forward to possibly one day being open to adopt.”
