Christina Aguilera Covers ‘Women’s Health’, Talks The Expectations Placed On Moms
Once again, Gwen Stefani will be swapped out for Christina Aguilera on the upcoming (tenth) season of The Voice, but ahead of the February 29 premiere, Xtina is getting some promo in by appearing on the cover of Women’s Health‘s March issue. Brian Bowen Smith photographed the blonde singer, who talks in her interview about the expectations women face after having children.
“Mothers are constantly expected to be the nurturers, the givers, the providers of a comfortable home,” she tells the publication. “We’re expected to be pregnant, have the kids, breastfeed once we have the babies. And we’re expected to look amazing after baby, right?”
She continues, “[We’re expected to] keep our husbands and boyfriends interested—because we’re supposed to get back to sexy and keep things exciting in the bedroom. There’s such a long list.”
Aguilera is, of course, no stranger to motherhood — she’s got two kiddos of her own: Son Max, 8, and one-year-old daughter Summer Rain.
