Aguilera took to Twitter to share her happy news and included a photograph. Aguilera had tweeted earlier in the day, wishing her fans a Happy Valentine's Day and hoping it was "unforgettable". It certainly was an unforgettable day for Aguilera as a few hours later she was engaged!
Aguilera posted a picture of the newly engaged couple holding hands with the sea and luscious greenery in the background. The focal point of the photograph was, without doubt, Aguilera's huge, sparkling diamond ring. She added the comment "He asked and I said."

When the couple tie the knot, it will be Aguilera's second marriage. She had previously been married to Jason Bratman, a music executive, in 2005. They have one son together, 6-year-old Max and decided to call it a day in 2010. It was at this point that Aguilera met Rutler whilst filming Burlesque. As US Weekly report, Rutler evidently helped Aguilera through some difficult times.
Rutler has not only been involved in the production of Burlesque but a number of other films including The Proposal, starring Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock, and The Social Network which starred Jesse Eisenberg.
Congratulations to Aguilera & Rutler on their engagement!
The couple have been dating since 2010.
