Between son Max Liron, who has "grown so much," beginning to take his first steps and the pressure of her upcoming tour, songstress Christina Aguilera finds herself maintaining a fine balance between quality time with her family and a successful career. Although Christina — who says "having Max has been an amazing experience" — shares that she has managed to keep her relationship with husband Jordan Bratman exciting by being consistent with their date nights and making it "a priority to work on our marriage," the 27-year-old is not as comfortable with the prospect of an upcoming tour. Calming her fears, however, is fellow musician and mother, Madonna — "a model-type that broke so many boundaries." Christina adds,
"She’s a mom of three and still doing it, on tour. I’m having trouble gearing up for my tour just thinking about how it’s going to be for Max, but we’re a traveling family and that’s just the way it’s going to be."
As Max, 11 months this week, delightfully "surprises" the proud parents every day, Christina reveals that the couple are hoping for an even bigger surprise in the future. "We definitely want to have another child," says the singer, who shares she has the "most wonderful partner."
