Christina Aguilera and Matthew Rutler are making the most of their summer!
In the last week alone, the Grammy Award-winning singer, 34, and her fiancé, 30, have each shared intimate family movies starring their 11-month-old daughter Summer Rain Rutler. Matthew published the first video on Instagram July 13 and titled it "Summer's Message in a Bottle." In his second video, which Christina shared via her own Instagram account Monday, the entire family of four—including Max Bratman, the "Ain't No Other Man" singer's 7-year-old son from her first marriage—visited the L.A. Zoo. "Babe- you make the best home vids of us & the kids..." she said. "Latest family outting w/ @m_rutler."
Matthew has also shared several adorable pictures of his daughter since he created public Facebook, Instagram and Twitter profiles one month ago.
For Christina, family bonding is more important than making music or filming a TV show. "When you're working so much on The Voice, it's kind of like, just being at home is a gift from God," the pop diva said on Live! With Kelly and Michael in May, adding, "Being at home with the kids in sweatpants, I'm good."
Indeed, as the "Genie in a Bottle" singer explained to E! News two months before her Live! With Kelly and Michael appearance, "My children constantly inspire me. And I love being at home and cuddling with them in my sweatpants. I learn so much from them, and every day is a new and fun adventure. I couldn't be more lucky to have Max and Summer. They are the lights of my life." Max feels the same way about his little sister. "Max is such an amazing older brother! I couldn't be more proud of him," the musician said of her son. "He really has a nurturing side to him and loves being Summer's big brother."
Asked to describe her favorite part about being a mom, the multiplatinum recording artist and Nashville guest star told E! News, "The best thing is seeing my children's smiles every day. Knowing that they are happy makes me happy. We love to just get to lay in bed, cozy under the blankets and watch classic Disney movies. There are two sides to me, which I like to keep very separate. There is a performing Christina, and then there's me as a mom. It's important for me to wear these different hats so I don't bring work home with me."
