Long-time beau and film producer Matt Rutler popped the big question to his superstar girlfriend Christina Aguilera on Valentine’s Day, on a romantic getaway in Hawaii. Of course, she said yes!
Rutler had spent over a year designing the perfect engagement ring, which includes nine surprise gemstones on the inside band. Each of the surprise colored stones were chosen with great care and consideration. A source close to the newly engaged couple told People magazine, “Christina is very spiritual, and having the stones touch her actual skin will emit positive [energy that will surround] her at all times. The gems represent things like love, protection and healing.”
More visible characteristics feature a band intertwined with diamonds, said to signify the twists and turns in their three-year courtship. No doubt one of them will include Aguilera’s unexpected pregnancy, as media reports she is happily expecting her first child with Rutler.
Since her doting fiancé designed the ring in secret, he wanted to be sure she would love it. The Art Deco style engagement ring features a combination of elements from two of Aguilera’s favorite vintage rings – a very clever and thoughtful idea when planning a secret engagement ring!
The star broke the news of her engagement to Rutler on Valentines day by tweeting a picture of them with the caption, “He asked and I said…”
And then she let her engagement ring do all the talking!
The couple first met when on the set of the 2010 movie “Burlesque” starring Christina Aguilera and Cher. Rutler was a film assistant for the production.
This will be Christina’s second walk down the aisle; she was previously married to Jordan Bratman, with whom she has a six-year old son, Max.
