Can you imagine having Christina Aguilera sing “Happy Birthday” to you? We’re guessing that very thing happened to one special little boy who turned six yesterday –– Max Bratman, Xtina’s precious son with her ex, Jordan Bratman.
While we know Xtina has done lots of fun things for Max’s previous birthdays –– including a trip to Disneyland when he turned three –– there’s no word as to how she celebrated with the cutie pie for his sixth birthday (but we can only imagine it was pretty cool).
Despite keeping a grueling pop star schedule, including her role as a coach on The Voice, Xtina has made it clear that Max is her priority. And, although the gorgeous “Genie In A Bottle” singer showed up to her swivel chair for Season 5 looking majorly svelte, she has even said that Max comes before hitting the gym.
“If I have to choose between working out and spending time with my son after a hard day, it’s not even a question,” Christina told Redbook magazine in their November issue last year.
And if you envisioned her “Happy Birthday” to lil’ Max filled with those intense baritone notes she shows off in some of her performances, you’d likely be wrong. She once told Conan O’Brien during an interview (via Celebrity Baby Scoop) that she tailors her performances to her wee audience.
“I tone it down when I’m singing lullabies to him, I don’t sing ‘Lady Marmalade’,” she explained. “I definitely don’t bring out the pipes for lullabies. He does have a mind of his own though. Sometimes he’ll be my worst critic and he’ll go ‘No, Mommy, not ‘Twinkle Twinkle’, not tonight. Not that one, sing ‘Wheels on the Bus’ instead.’”
The wheels on the (tour) bus go round and round, round and round, round and round…
