*A week after announcing her engagement to boyfriend Matt Rutler, multiple outlets are reporting that Christina Aguilera is also expecting their first child together.
Aguilera, 33, and Rutler, 29, have been dating since 2010, following Aguilera’s breakup with her ex-husband, Jordan Bratman. The singer and periodic judge on NBC’s “The Voice” has welcomed her 6-year-old son, Max, with Bratman in 2008.
Although Aguilera was eager to share news of her engagement — she posted a photo of her sparkling ring on Twitter on February 14 — she has yet to say a peep about the pregnancy reports. However, the streets are talking.
Christina Aguilera tweeted this photo on Valentine’s Day with the caption: “He asked and I said…”
*Christina Aguilera got a ring for Valentine’s Day
The singer and judge on “The Voice” took to Twitter Friday to announce she and longtime boyfriend Matt Rutler will tie the knot. She also shared a photo of them holding hands, with her ring facing the camera.
The pair met on the set of Aguilera’s 2010 film “Burlesque,” where Rutler was working as a production assistant. He’s also worked on films such as “The Social Network” and “The Town,” according to his IMDB page.
*Lady Gaga hit up the season finale of “The Voice” last night to belt her single “Do What U Want,” with “Voice” coach Christina Aguilera filling in for R. Kelly. (Watch after the jump.)
The pair, who were rumored to be at odds with each other, wore complimentary metallic gold outfits for the occasion. At one point in the performance, they sat next to each other on a sofa as Aguilera stroked the “Applause” singer’s leg and sipped on champagne.

Cee-Lo Green and Christina Aguilera of NBC’s “The Voice”
*Christina Aguilera says she was glad to see someone else take over her swivel chair for a minute at “The Voice.”
The singer, along with fellow judge Cee-Lo Green, took the 2012 season off – leaving remaining judges Adam Levine and Blake Shelton to work with stand-ins Shakira and Usher.
“Honestly, for me, I was happy that someone filled the spot for a second, because I had to step away,” Aguilera told us during the TCA Summer Press Tour. “[In] 2010 I joined the show, and it was a time where I needed to sort of dive into something else outside of myself. [But] then it was like this train that kept gaining and gaining and gaining more viewers as each season went on. And I needed a moment to step away. And thank God for Shakira. She did a beautiful job. And Usher apparently came and stepped up with a lot of creative stuff.
Usher on “The Voice”
Cee-Lo, meanwhile, was a tad less enthusiastic about Ursh taking his place. Listen below.
“The Voice” airs Mondays at 8/7c and Tuesdays at 9/8c on NBC.
*In a new promo released for Season 5 of “The Voice,” judges Adam Levine and Blake Shelton are out fishing – expressing how much they miss former judges Christina Aguilera and Cee-Lo Green, who were temporarily replaced last season by Shakira and Usher.
Levine and Shelton break out into a wistful rendition of Peaches and Herb’s “Reunited” when suddenly, Aguilera emerges from the woods in a red gown and begins to croon as she walks on water toward her fellow coaches.
Then Cee-Lo Green enters the picture in a way you have to see to believe.
