Pop super star Christina Aguilera, 27, has finally given birth to a healthy baby boy.
According to the singer’s website, the baby was born on Saturday night and weighed 6 pounds 2 ounces and measured 20.5 inches. The web site’s announcement aid, “Christina Aguilera and Jordan Bratman are proud to announce the birth of their son Max Liron Bratman. He is a beautiful, healthy baby boy.”
Bratman, 30, and Aguilera have been together and married since 2005 and this is the first child for the happy couple.
Her pregnacny was put into the spotlight back in July. Surprisingly, it was also announced by Paris Hilton at a crowded party in the same month. Paris reportedly said that Aguilera was the most gorgeous pregnant woman in the world. Aguilera took the sudden spotlight to heart as she would become more open about her pregnancy in the months to come, namely in November when she confirmed the pregnancy in Glamour Magazine.
When Aguilera found out that she was pregnant, she was in the middle of her Back to Basics tour. Although she took proper health precautions, the pop singer continued with her tour.
Fellow Hollywood A-listers socialite Nicole Richie, 26, and Good Charlotte singer Joel Madden, 28, are also proud parents of a child, a health baby girl named Harlow Winter Kate Madden.
Both Richie and Aguilera gave birth at the same hospital, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, a few hours apart. This is also the first child for Richie and Madden. Lionel Richie, Nicole’s adopted father, as well as Benji Madden, Joel’s brother, were seen visiting the expecting couple a few hours before the birth of their baby. Richie and Madden are not married and have not announced any plans to get married.
As many people remember, Richie spent a few hours in jail while pregnant for drunk driving charges. Due to her pregnant state, she was quickly released. More controversy surrounded Richie’s pregnancy due to her low body weight and weight-related health problems.
