Christina Aguilera has gotten engaged to her long time boyfriend of over three years Matt Rutler and she tweeted a picture of her massive ring on Twitter. The 33 year-old singer and actress met her new fiance back when she was working on the film Burlesque. In those days Rutler was a production assistant and Christina was starring in the film, along with Cher and Alan Cumming. While the former Mouseketeer was not working on the set she was busy divorcing her then husband Jordan Bratman.
The Do What U Want singer was also, in between acting and formally ditching her husband, dating Rutler. She married Bratman in 2005 and the couple had one child together, Max. Back in 2010 Christina may have been in love with the new fellow in her life, but, she still loved one little man above anyone else. Talking to Ellen DeGeneres right after her divorce to Bratman; she explained to the talk show host that her son was the most important “love” of her life.
Now though, in 2014, her other love must have popped that important on the most romantic day of the year Valentines Day. The picture that Christina Aguilera tweeted on Twitter showed her hand with that massive engagement ring in her new fiance’s hand and a date of February 14. The picture shows the two lovebirds, with hands intertwined in the foreground and a tropical background complete with surf beating onto a sandy beach, tropical plants surrounding a building and what looks to be blue hazy skies and nothing else. It looks like the happy couple could be on their own deserted isle.
The tweet itself, posted on the star’s verified Twitter account @xtina stated that “He asked” and “I said…” with the picture following. According to a source close to the couple, they are excited to be taking their love to the next level. The Voice coach, and love of her life Max, have been living with film producer and musician Rutler in Aguilera’s mansion in the Mulholland Estates gated community in Los Angeles.
The Award winning singer bought the mansion back in April 2013 for $10 million and shares the community with other glitterati in the entertainment world like Charlie Sheen and Paris Hilton. Christina has always kept her private life just that, and her relationship with Rutler has followed that credo. However, the two were spotted on their way to a Hollywood dinner date to celebrate Christina’s birthday December last year.
The two were also caught out taking a romantic walk in LA. Aguilera, despite her tendency to be quiet about relationships, also revealed in 2010 that she and Matt had developed a strong friendship when they worked on Burlesque together and that she was having fun dating him. Fun that apparently has lasted the test of time.
Since Christina Aguilera tweeted about her engagement to Matt Rutler and posted a picture of that enormous ring on Twitter the image of her and Matt holding hands has been retweeted well over 4,000 times and favorited almost 9,000 times. It looks like her fans are really happy for her Valentines Day engagement.
