Outspoken singer Christina Aguilera will reportedly get engaged to boyfriend Jordan Bratman very soon.

Bratman has put in an order for a stunning $54,000 (GBP30,000) 20-carat diamond engagement ring with celebrity jeweller Stephen Webster, according to British newspaper the NEWS OF THE WORLD.

A source close to the ring designer whispers, "Christina and Jordan have been together for a while now and feel ready to settle down.

"Jordan is sure Christina is the one and he can't wait to make it official, but he decided to wait until her birthday to propose, to make it really extra special."

The GENIE IN A BOTTLE singer met Bratman, who is a leading figure at her management company Irving Azoff, 18 months ago and she recently gushed, "I love my guy so much. I'd really like to get married."
