While half of us were enjoying a romantic dinner and the other half were enjoying Netflix this past Valentine’s Day– Christina Aguilera was getting engaged. FYI: I did both dinner and Netflix #topthat
While in Hawaii, the singer revealed the celebratory news to fans through social media simply saying “He asked and I said….” on Instagram and Twitter with the photo above. Aguilera has been dating her fiance, Matthew Rutler for three years, soon after her divorce from Jordan Bratman (funnily enough on V-Day 2010).
Her and Bratman were together for five years and share a 6-year-old son.
The newly engaged couple met on the set of “Burlesque,” when Rutler was working as a production assistant. Obviously ready for the next step, he popped the question with a gorgeous vintage-looking ring.
And now a close source is revealing more details about the ring, that has a unique look. Apparently Rutlet spent years customizing it with each individual stone having a specific meaning. “The actual band weaves and intertwines [the] diamonds,” the source told People.
“Every connecting criss-cross symbolizes how their paths crossed … the ring narrows at the base [to] reflect how their bond continues to grow closer and stronger over time. Adding, “There are nine special multi-color gemstones that you cannot see. They all symbolize something meaningful to the couple.”
We say mazel to the couple, and we can’t wait to see her svelte figure in a wedding gown.
