AGUILERA CREDITS HUSBAND WITH OVERCOMING ABUSIVE PAST

CHRISTINA AGUILERA has paid an emotional tribute to her husband JORDAN BRATMAN in a tearful TV interview – crediting their union with helping her overcome her abusive past.

The singer and her music marketing executive husband will be married four years in November (09) and share 19-month-old son Max.

Aguilera insists it’s Bratman’s loving influence that’s helped her conquer her fears after growing up with an abusive father – and she has vowed to stop the cycle of abuse since starting their own family.

In a tearful TV interview, she tells E! Online, “I grew up not having any real male perspective or role model and Jordan just continuously makes me fall deeper and deeper in love with him everyday. He just exudes such love and is such a great father to Max that it just makes me the happiest woman alive. I’m just lucky to have him in my life… every couple has times when they disagree, but I never allow any arguments to escalate in front of Max.”
