Day out with Dad!

Following his ex Christina Aguilera‘s arrest for public intoxication, Jordan Bratman takes their son Max Liron, 3, out for some father-son bonding time Tuesday in Santa Monica, Calif.

Although the singer’s friends are worried about her, “Jordan has been really wonderful through all this,” a source tells PEOPLE.

“He’s been really understanding. [He and Christina] are rebuilding their friendship.”

looks photoshopped to me

Very sweet photo. Christina obviously needs some kind of help. The last thing she needs to be doing is going on national TV for a new singing show.

Max is so cute. That’s a sweet photo.

Very sweet picture.

Good thing at least the dad is stepping up to the plate. I think it’s quite obvious that Christina has hardly been taking care of her kid since her divorce.

this kid looks like he’s thinking “my mom sucks and i’m sad”

aww, jordan seems like a sweetheart, I bet he is a good dad. I hope the press leaves him and that little boy alone. christina is messed up but I think she is still a good mom to her child.

This photo is too cute. I know that fathers are supposed to spend time with their child(ren) anyway but for some reason I love seeing it. = ) Jordan & Christina both seem to be good parents that love their son. I’m blessed to have a terrific marriage to my best friend & have never been through a divorce so I don’t know how I would react to one. Everybody copes with divorce differently, some are able to continue to function & take care of their child(ren) while sometimes suffering inwardly; while others shutdown & look for other ways to cope because of the inward suffering. Clearly she seems to be one of the latter. I hope she bounces back quickly for at the least Max’s sake.

This breaks my heart!

megan- I doubt it’s photoshopped. The photo agency (Flynet it says under the picture) would get in loads of trouble if they photoshopped images (I mean beyond just adjusting the lighting or something).

Anyway, Max is adorable, and I hope for his sake that Christina gets it together soon! I feel bad for Christina. She seems to be having a really rough time coping with her divorce.

I felt immense sadness for Max at the first glimpse of this photo…and Jordan, too! It’s a sweet, poignant moment, but that little boy has probably been through more than we will never know. If Christina can’t keep it together in public, who knows what a mess she is behind closed doors. She is not parenting responsibly to behave in such a manner to expose (even through the media) her son to her disgraceful behavior. She needs help, but that’s stating the obvious. Poor little Max!

Toya, I love your comments. I’m pulling for Christina too.
