Christina Aguilera Shares First Look at Daughter Summer Rain

Look at those blue eyes!
Christina Aguilera is opening up about her daughter with fiancé Matthew Rutler, Summer Rain, in a new interview with People, in which she dishes about the challenges of being a working mother. The 34-year-old The Voice judge is also already a mom to seven-year-old Max Liron, her son with her ex-husband Jordan Bratman.
This marks the first photo we've seen of Summer Rain's face, as the private singer has only previously shared pictures of her baby's back.
Christina welcomed Summer Rain on Aug. 16, 2014, and says she immediately felt a connection with her baby girl.
"I was speechless,” she tells People. "She was literally like an angel … We had an immediate calm bond, and I felt unexplainably connected to her and her spirit."
"Her smile lights up a room and I know it melts mama and daddy's hearts," she adds. "She laughs a ton and is easy to make smile. She just wants to be where the action is!"
But her personal life has definitely not been without some struggle. The "Say Something" singer admits that it's hard to balance her work and home life. Christina's certainly keeping busy these days, with a new album and an upcoming TV series for ABC Family, which she's also producing. She's also returning to The Voice for Season 8. She took some time off last season from the hit NBC show to focus on her children.
"It's definitely not easy juggling work and motherhood, as being a parent is a full-time job within itself," she says. "You just have to make it work for you."
"It's hard to know you won't have all the right answers at the right times," she also says about the difficulties of parenting. "And 'mom guilt' is the worst thing ever. But you have to surrender and let go, knowing you're doing your very best and no one loves them, or wants what's best for them more than you."
And her kids will always come first.
"My life has so many different moving parts, but my kids are the center focal piece, and everything else shifts around them," she stresses.
