Christina Aguilera has finally officially announced her pregnancy, and even shared the gender of the baby. She is having a girl, which now gives her one of each. The coach for The Voice already has a son from her first marriage.
Rumors of the star’s second pregnancy started back in February, just days after the announcement that she and Matt Rutler were engaged. The rumors all started because her soon-to-be mother-in-law stated that they would not want to move closer to her when there was a new baby in the family. However, the couple refrained from officially sharing the news.
Shortly after the rumors started, a number of different sources confirmed the pregnancy. However, the couple continued to remain quiet, enjoying some news that was just for them.
The singer, who is taking another year off from being a coach on the talent show, was performing at a special event in Malaysia. After singing a few songs, she decided the time was right to share her exciting news with her fans. The fans likely feel special that the 33-year-old chose to confirm her pregnancy and share the news just with them.
After the show, the Beautiful singer shared a photo from the concert, with a special mention to her Malaysian fans in the comment.
Aguilera is very happy with the gender of the baby, and showed that happiness during her announcement. According to Hollywood Life the star really hoped that it would be a girl. While she wants a healthy baby, it is understandable that she really hoped that it would be a girl. After all, she already has one boy and she would like to share her girly ways with a daughter of her own.
No due date has been shared yet. If she knows the gender, then she will be at least 17 weeks pregnant. She is not showing much yet from the look of the picture from her show in Malaysia, but that could be the choice of clothing.
The pregnancy may be the reason for Aguilera stepping down as a coach for The Voice again this year. However, it is also likely that she wanted to focus on her music again, which was the reason for stepping down during season four.
It is a very exciting time for the singer and her fiance, Rutler. Now questions surround when they will get married. It is very likely that the two will decide to put the baby first and wait for a wedding. However, they could opt for a small ceremony with just a few family members and friends around. They seem to prefer to keep things private, so a wedding on the scale of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s is very unlikely. It would be worth waiting for, since both the 33-year-old’s children can have special parts in the day.
The Genie in a Bottle singer made the decision to cancel her free concert earlier in the week out of respect for the families of those who were involved in the missing Malaysia aircraft. Aguilera definitely gave her fans something worth waiting for by announcing the gender of her baby on stage.
