Still going strong!
When Christina Aguilera, 31, started dating Burlesque set assistant Matthew Rutler in late 2010, "we thought it was going to be a quick, seat-of-your-pants romance," a Rutler source admits to Us Weekly.
But more than a year later, "it's turned into something special," the source shares. Credit that staying power to Rutler's eagerness to please his girlfriend of over a year--especially when it comes to the Voice coach's son, Max, 4. (Aguilera split from Max's dad, her ex-husband Jordan Bratman, in 2010).
"He recently surprised them by taking them to Cirque du Soleil's Iris show," a pal says of Rutler. "They had a blast." More recently, Aguilera threw Rutler a 27th birthday bash at burlesque-themed hotspot Le Descarga in Los Angeles April 5.
