Christina Aguilera got engaged to her longtime boyfriend Matthew Rutler on Valentine’s Day and didn’t waste any time telling her fans, or showing off her new sparkler.
The singer announced the news on Twitter, along with a photo of her ring.

Aguilera met her fiance on the set of the 2010 film Burlesque, which premiered during her divorce from Jordan Bratman, whom the singer married in 2006. Ironically, Us Weekly reports that the couple finalized their divorce on Valentine’s Day 2011. They share custody of their 6-year-old son Max Bratman.
Christina Aguilera is known for keeping her personal life private, but it seems her big announcement was too exciting to keep under wraps. The singer also isn’t above gushing about her man. She told Ellen DeGeneres in 2010, shortly after the divorce news broke, that Rutler was “the love of my life, and I adore him.” She added, “He’s such a character, and he’s so happy and at the end of the day, that’s what’s most important.”
The couple has been living together at Christina’s mansion in Los Angeles. While she isn’t very active on Twitter, compared with other celebrities, Aguilera still commands a following of 11.6 million users.
