Singer Christina Aguilera insisted on turning her baby son’s bris into a big celebration.
Aguilera, a Catholic, says she has adopted all the Jewish customs and holidays of her husband Jordan Bratman’s, and admits she now knows how to celebrate the rite of male circumcision.
The pop star refused to allow the sacred ceremony to become a sombre affair and turned the bris into a big party.
“I’m not Jewish, my husband’s Jewish… I never really knew a lot of Jewish people growing up either, so I really had no idea about the bris and all the Jewish holidays. It’s all a learning process for me,” she revealed.
“It (bris) was a very sweet experience; we had a lot of close friends come over and experience the bris with us. We’re such a non-conventional couple, we had a lot of penis balloons everywhere.”
Aguilera and Bratman welcomed little Max Liron Bratman into the world on January 12. The naming and circumcision ceremony took place on January 20.
