COVER STORY SNEAK PEEK: Christina Aguilera's Baby!

"I'm head over heels in love," says Christina, whose son has "completely changed my life"

When it comes to month-old Max Liron Bratman – combined, his Latin first name and Hebrew middle name roughly translate to “our greatest song” – “I’m head over heels in love,” says his mother, Christina Aguilera, in the new cover story of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday. “He’s completely changed my life.”

For a pop superstar with a super-sexy image, life has suddenly gotten very domestic. “When he’s breast-feeding, I just sit there and stare at him,” says the singer, 27. “I’m in awe of this little miracle.”

As she is of the lavish new trappings surrounding her son (their home is the former house owned by Ozzy Osboure during their reality show). “My family was always struggling with money,” says Aguilera, whose parents divorced when she was 6. “It’s surreal to be able to give my child this lifestyle.”

So far, Max, a “sweet, mellow baby” who inherited his dad Jordan Bratman’s brown hair and his mom’s ability to turn heads, seems grateful. “He’s a good combination of both of us,” says the proud new mom. “He smiles a lot already, and he has the same little Elvis side smile that I do.”
