Christina Aguilera Says Son Keeps Her on ‘Sane Path’

Christina Aguilera has broken her silence about the impending divorce from her husband of nearly five years, Jordan Bratman, to Redbook, and from the sound of it, her life includes no fun or games these days.

“It’s not easy, and there have been a lot of tears and sadness. It’s impossible to redefine yourself and your life overnight,” the 29-year-old star of the upcoming musical Burlesque confesses. ”Thankfully, I have my mom and a small group of close friends who are there for me 24/7 and whom I can trust and depend on. On days when it feels impossible to even get out of bed, much less function as a mother, their support and encouragement have kept me moving forward.”

It’s her 2-year-old son Max, however, that has proved to be her sanity’s greatest asset. 

“Thankfully, I have Max to keep me on a sane path. His needs and happiness are my top priorities, and my biggest concern is to protect him and make him feel safe.”

On the divorce itself, Christina remains tight-lipped: “Out of respect for my husband, I prefer to keep the specifics private. Right now, I’m just trying to figure out how to make it through each day.”
