Christina Aguilera Has Bris For Newborn Son
E! News has revealed that new parents Christina Aguilera and Jordan Bratman held a bris, the Hebrew baby naming and circumcision ritual ceremony, at their Beverly Hills home Sunday. More than a dozen family and friends attended the gathering. Jewish rituals aren't new to the Bratman family. In 2005, the couple wed in a Jewish ceremony in Napa Valley, California.
A bris is typically done on a baby's eighth day of life, and sure enough, son Max Liron was born January 12. He came home from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center earlier this week. The ceremony formalizes the child's name; his middle name, Liron, means "my song" in Hebrew.
