Christina Aguilera is a mom!

The pint-sized vocal powerhouse gave birth to a boy, named Max Liron Bratman on Saturday, January 12 in Los Angeles. He is the first child for the songbird and her hubby of two years, Jordan Bratman, 30.

Despite rampant reports — not to mention photos and announcements from others — of a bun in the oven for months, Christina didn’t confirm her pregnancy until November in an interview with Glamour magazine, declaring, "I want to get it right."

Once the confirmation was out of the way, the 27-year-old — whose wedding to Jordan was featured exclusively in the pages of OK! — remained candid about her great expectations, including a nude spread in Marie Claire, in which she explained her hesitancy to talk about her happy news.

"Because I hadn’t said anything, people thought I was trying to keep it this big, bad secret, and that’s not the case at all," she said. "I just wasn’t commenting. I’m not being like, ‘Hey, everybody, I’m pregnant!’ I’m not that girl."

After a less-than-discreet blue baby shower, the Grammy winner revealed the sex in an interview with Access Hollywood at a Rock the Vote event.

"That’s why it’s even more important for me now to bring this baby into a world that he knows that I do care about."
