New mum CHRISTINA AGUILERA opted to deliver her son by Caesarian section – because she was too scared to give birth naturally.
The singer gave birth to son Max Liron – her first child with husband Jordan Bratman – on 12 January (08) at Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
And Aguilera, 27, booked the operation in advance to make sure she didn’t have to go through the pain of childbirth.
She tells People magazine, “I’d heard horror stories about tearing. I really wanted a calm and peaceful environment. I didn’t want any surprises.”
But the star admits her husband had no such qualms and insisted on recording the whole experience.
She adds, “Jordan wasn’t squeamish at all. He had the video camera ready to go. The most reassuring thing was hearing that first beautiful cry. I just welled up with tears.”
