PEOPLE was first to report that Christina Aguilera was given a ring by her new man Matt Rutler as a 30th birthday gift last month. An insider dished to PEOPLE: "It's not an engagement ring and they're not engaged. It was a surprise gift from him." It seems though the couple will not be racing to the alter, they do spend quite a bit of time together. The insider dished that Rutler spends most of his time at Christina's Beverly Hills estate.
Aguilera and Rutler seem quite content with the rapid pace at which their romance is evolving. The pair have already introduced each other to their respective families at a New Year's Eve fete hosted by the pop singer. Guests included Rutler's mother and Aguilera's mother, brother, and sister. Rutler also joined Christina and her son, Max, on an outing to the Peterson Automotive Museum in Los Angeles recently.
