Christina Aguilera, 33, revealed to the world on Twitter that she and boyfriend of three years, Matthew Rutler, are engaged. The news came on Feb. 14, making for a better Valentine's Day for Aguilera than the one she had in 2011, which marked the official ending of her marriage to Jordan Bratman. Read on to learn a bit more about Aguilera's new fiancé, Matt Rutler.

He Works in the Movie Industry

While the future "Mr. Aguilera" isn't an actor, he does work on film sets. He's worked as a production assistant on many popular films, including "The Proposal," "Grown Ups," "The Social Network" and "Burlesque." The latter is where Rutler met the powerhouse singer and when they began to get close.

He Knows How to Propose

Forget the nice restaurant or a room filled with a few friends, because a gorgeous beach is definitely the best backdrop for a wedding proposal. Clearly, Rutler knew that, as a stunning beach view can be seen in background of Aguilera's Twitter picture of her engagement ring. The beach is a bit hard to see, though, because it's hard to look away from the singer's large diamond ring. Well done, Rutler!

He Plays the Guitar

Aguilera isn't the only person in the relationship that is involved in the music industry. Rutler played guitar for The Nate Mott Band, releasing a couple of music videos with the band before parting ways. The other members have created a new band, while Rutler is busy spending time with his new fianceé.

He Grew Up in New Jersey

Rutler now works and lives in California, but he's originally from the Garden State. The New Jersey native went to Ramapo High School before moving to Rhode Island to attend Roger Williams University. After graduating, he made the move to California to enter into the entertainment industry.

He Is Very Dedicated to His Mother

No matter what he accomplishes in life or who he is dating, Rutler always makes time to talk with his mom and to spend time with her. Back in December 2012, he took his mother to the set of "The Voice," so he could spend quality time with both of the women in his life -– his mom and Aguilera.
