Christina Aguilera bares all on the cover of the January issue of Maire Claire, really showing off her baby bump. She's never been shy about showing some skin, but it's funny to think that just a few months ago she was keeping mum about whether or not she was even pregnant. In the article, Christina finally opens up about her pregnancy and more. Here are highlights:
- On when she got pregnant:
"We were planning on starting to try after the tour. And so, I had gone off the Pill to prepare my body, because I didn't know how much time it would take. You've heard it takes some time -- except with Power Egg and Super Sperm here... I'm like, Oh, my God, can you believe it just happened?"
- On keeping the baby secret from her audiences:
"I was paranoid. There are so many things that could go wrong -- somebody could slip, somebody could fall, I could fall. There was no way in hell I was going to jeopardize my baby for my show. I didn't want to make the audience uncomfortable, like, 'Pregnant lady onstage! Is she going to be OK?'"
- On not getting upset over Paris' big VMA revelation:
"Because I hadn't said anything, people thought I was trying to keep it this big, bad secret, and that's not the case at all. I just wasn't commenting. I'm not being like, 'Hey, everybody, I'm pregnant!' I'm not that girl."
Christina certainly draws a lot of attention whether she intends to or not, but we respect that she didn't feel the need to broadcast her news to the world. The pop star is looking healthy and fabulous and we can't help but wonder if her little boy will be here by the time his mommy's cover hits the newsstands.
