Christina Aguilera enjoyed a trouble-free birth over the weekend as the 27-year-old and her husband, music executive Jordan Bratman, welcomed their first child into the world.
Max Liron weighed 6lb 2oz (2.8kg) child and is "a beautiful, healthy baby boy", the soul singer revealed on her website. She told fans the baby's arrival was "a very joyful and special day for Jordan and I".
Aguilera's record label RCA added that both mother and child were doing well.
The child is the first for both Aguilera and Bratman, who married two years ago.
