Christina Aguilera held a sweet celebration for her daughter Summer Rain‘s first birthday full of all of her baby girl’s favorite things.

The singer, 34, and her fiancé, producer Matthew Rutler, 30, invited close friends and family to their backyard bash in Los Angeles on Saturday, which included Minnie Mouse, a balloon maker and a bubble station — all things Summer loves.

The carnival-themed soiree featured lots of pink décor (the birthday girl’s favorite color) and was a family-friendly affair.

Aguilera spent the night before Summer’s actual birthday, Aug. 16, performing at Harlem’s Apollo Theater, telling PEOPLE at the time, “We’re going to celebrate today as a family and have a little party later in the month. She’s so beautiful.”

The proud mom also shared an adorable snap of the birthday girl on Instagram last Sunday, captioning it, “Happy 1st birthday! My sweet, Summer Rain.”

I like that they use her full name Summer Rain, it’s a pretty name…

Her fiancé is a producer now?? Before his job was fetching coffee on movie sets.

What’s on her [Summer Rain] neck?

Cute! What a precious baby. Happy Birthday!

She is such a happy baby! Every picture I’ve seen of her, she has that big smile!

Poor baby, named after a female hygiene product.

Summer is a beautiful child. Christina is a lucky woman to have two beautiful & happy kids.

It is very refreshing to see a Hollywood baby with a normal name and a age appropriate birthday party. The dad could have dressed a little nicer for the occasion.

How does Christina change a messy poopy diaper with those long talons. She must have poop under them. Cute baby; mommy needs to give it a rest on the face full of makeup and hooker nails.

Summer Rain (her name brings a smile to my face) is simply adorable!!!
Is that a birthmark on her neck?

Marine on

@sandy,

I change my nephews diaper with those “hooker nails” as you like to call them and no it doesn’t hurt him and i don’t get anything under them.

Looks like a small hemangioma on her neck…Just a cluster of blood vessels…

Justme on

So cute! Good to see other article on this site!!! Seems the diggers and k-t-rash are once again every other article j-unk

Robin on

She has such a delightful name!! Is it me or doe it look like Christina might be expecting again? Maybe it is just the way she is standing but it looks like she has a bump.

Kimberly on

Awww this cutie should be on your cover! What a darling baby girl! I sure miss when my two children were this age!

Kelly Blackburn on

Robin….. I thought the same thing

Adorable little girl!!

Alex on

Future model/actor Summer Rain rocks her first photoshoot.

SAR on

Sweet! Christina is obviously thrilled to have a little girl she can dress up. Summer has her mom’s blue eyes.

Jessica on

She looks thick.

Lisa on

The thing on her neck is called a Hemangioma. My son has one just like that but on the left side.

Robin- It DOES look a bit like that, but in photos of her at the Apollo Theater that PEOPLE mentioned, she has no bump whatsoever. So I’m thinking it’s just the dress and/or the way she’s holding Summer.

Huh- I believe the Feminine hygiene product is called Summer’s Eve, not Summer Rain. 😉

That being said, Summer is ADORABLE!

BTW, at the risk of sounding weird, I LOVE that they aren’t trying to hide Summer’s hemangioma! A birthmark doesn’t make a person less beautiful, and kudos to them for recognizing that!

Angelica on

Adorable Summer Rain! She looks so happy.
