Christina Aguilera is so anxious to marry boyfriend Matthew Rutler that she’s preparing to pop the question herself.
Indeed, Christina, 30, has not been shy about telling friends and family that she and her beau are definitely getting married. According to friends of the couple, “She makes jokes about him proposing all the time in front of him. He gets a little embarrassed, but it’s obvious they’ve talked about it. It’s coming soon. She wants to start over and thinks that asking him to marry her is the way to start.”
But another friend says Matthew, 26, may actually beat her to the punch. He wants to propose over Christmas but he’s scrounging for money to buy her a rock. Unlike Christina’s ex-husband, music executive Jordan Bratman, Matthew doesn’t have the funds to keep up with Christina’s lifestyle or extravagant tastes. “He wants to buy her a major diamond, so he’s saving his pennies,” a friend says. “He’s going to propose this year, even if he has to buy the ring on credit.”
