Rutler and Aguilera met while filming Burlesque, where Aguilera showed off her acting skills and Rutler worked as a production assistant. The couple became involved while Aguilera’s divorce from former husband Jordan Bratman was being finalized. They have been together three years.
Now, confirms JustJared.com, the couple are having a little girl.
Aguilera reportedly delivered the news to fans at a performance in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on March 28th. No video captured the moment. She tweeted shortly after the event.
Ain't no other fans… Thank you Malaysia for all the love & support! XoXtina pic.twitter.com/oCVaYp1E8L

Fans tweeted the news and their support for her as a singer and a mother.
@xtina so excited that you're having a girl!

Aguilera’s new baby girl will give six-year-old son Max a sister, though Aguilera still shares custody of Max with Bratman.
Aguilera recently took a season off of reality singing competition The Voice and plans to take season six off as well to spend more time with her growing family. Shakira will take Aguilera’s space as a judge on the show. If Aguilera’s adoring Twitter following is any indication, she will be sorely missed.
