Christina Aguilera and Matthew Rutler have been proving to be ‘couple goals’ for a decade. Aguilera, deemed as one of the best-selling music artists of our time, with five Grammy Awards and one Latin Grammy Award, has always wanted to keep her dating life away from the press. Yet, the singer’s tidbits about her dating life from once sharing how the ‘Dirrty’ crooner spends ‘naked Sundays’ with former husband Jordan Bratman to having one of the longest engagements in history, Christina Aguilera definitely doesn’t do anything ordinary.
Aguilera started seeing Matthew Rutler, the guitarist, after she split with ex-husband record producer Jordan Bratman in 2010 when she said, "There is a love there, yes." Aguilera admitted, "I'm dating and it's something I haven't had in a really long time."
After four years of dating, the couple got engaged which the ‘Candyman’ singer posted on social media with the caption "He asked and I said......" The 40-year-old Rolling Stone’s one of the 100 greatest singers of all time, proceeded to have a daughter named Summer Rain. The couple has been engaged for almost seven years now and as Rutler happily writes in his Instagram bio, "Proud father, happily engaged."
Christina Aguilera and Matthew Rutler named their daughter Summer Rain and a number of questions easily sparked up on the internet behind such a curious name. Later the ‘Genie in a Bottle’ singer explained to People, "Summer is a time of spreading warmth and light, while rain washes away ... replenishes and brings new life to allow growth and new beginnings," and added, "I wanted her name to be filled with inspiration, love and joy. And that's exactly what she brings to all who encounter her. Her beauty and sunshine exude from within."
The reason behind the couple not getting married
Many believe that the reason for the couple not getting married can definitely be the ‘Hurt’ crooner’s past history with marriages; not just her own but she has openly also spoken about witnessing a lot of abuse in a home which may have made her averse towards marriage. The singer told Unmask, "I've spoken very openly about growing up in a house where there was a lot of abuse. There was a lot of domestic violence and seeing what my mom went through, what I went through as a child, you know not feeling like I had a safe place to go home to." Her experience is also vividly portrayed in the song ‘I'm OK.’
What the future holds
From cosplaying ‘love costumes’ to posing as Santas, the love is in abundance for the couple. With time progressing, will they ever tie the knot, only time will tell? For now, the couple seems to be the best supportive partner for each other reaching new heights. Aguilera released her latest project ‘Loyal Brave True’ as a promotional single from the live-action remake of ‘Mulan’. She also dropped a re-recording of ‘Reflection’ on August 28, 2020.
