(dailymail.co.uk) - Diva Christina Aguilera has bared her baby bump to the world, appearing in a saucy shoot for American magazine Marie Claire. The "Sexy Mama" shoot, featured in the January 2008 issue of Marie Claire, reveals that the baby was an unexpected surprise for the singer and husband Jordan Bratman.
"We were planning on starting to try after the tour," she is quoted by Hollywood gossip website Perez Hilton as saying in the article.
"And so, I had gone off the Pill to prepare my body, because I didn't know how much time it would take. You've heard it takes some time.
"Except with Power Egg and Super Sperm here ... I'm like, Oh, my God, can you believe it just happened?"
The pregnancy - discovered when she still had a month left on tour - left her wearing a heart monitor on stage as she took extra care to protect the baby.
"I was paranoid," she reportedly admitted.
"There are so many things that could go wrong-somebody could slip, somebody could fall, I could fall. There was no way in hell I was going to jeopardize my baby for my show.
"I didn't want to make the audience uncomfortable, like, 'Pregnant lady onstage! Is she going to be OK?' But I had to announce it to my band and my dancers, because I wanted to make sure they had my back."
Aguilera also reportedly spoke on the fact that her pregnancy was announced to the world by the less-than-discreet Paris Hilton.
"Because I hadn't said anything, people thought I was trying to keep it this big, bad secret, and that's not the case at all. I just wasn't commenting. I'm not being like, 'Hey, everybody, I'm pregnant!' I'm not that girl."
