New mom Christina Aguilera has everything a girl could want.
Aguilera, who will be returning as a coach for season 8 of the The Voice, isn’t the only one completely head over heels with the new addition. The mom of two says that her firstborn, son Max Liron, 7, has happily stepped up as a big brother.
“He’s just so endearing and sweet to her,” Aguilera, 34, shares.
And while she’s happy to let Max love on his sister, the songstress is strict about enforcing healthy habits before he holds her.
“I’m like, ‘Wash your hands before you touch the baby’ … you don’t want the germs,” she explains. “He’s in school … there’s a little age gap, but it’s perfect though because then they don’t fight over toys.”
Aguilera adds, “He’s the big helper and the big teacher so he’s awesome. He’s just so loving and sweet. I’m like, ‘How old are you?’ He’s like a grandma to her, he’s just like, ‘I’ll teach you everything.'”
But Aguilera admits her 5-month-old baby girl — who made her digital debut when the proud mama posted a photo of Summer wearing “Lil Diva” bloomers — is pretty irresistible. “Her little tushy! The little chunky legs. I love it, I love to nibble on them,” she shares.
And although she won’t reveal any big secrets about her return to the studio — other than she’s working with Pharrell after they “connected” during her pregnancy — the fans can expect much of Aguilera’s upcoming music to reflect her life recently.
“It’s genuine and it’s heartfelt and I’m very excited to pour my heart out into this record fully,” she says. “I’ve been gathering and writing and coming up with these amazing ideas for different parts of how I was feeling the past year, so I’m really excited to vocalize all of it and make it all come together.”
