And even though she describes mothering her son without the stability of a partnership as a “struggle,” the singer maintains that her ex-husband’s contributions are hardly the problem.

Christina tells Marie Claire in the new February issue that despite her family helping her with her son Max Liron, single motherhood is difficult for her:

“It’s a struggle. But I can’t single out my ex-husband [as the problem] because he’s a devoted father and great with my son,” she added. “We always make sure that we put Max first. I have help from family and good people around me in support of my career. I couldn’t do what I do without a strong team behind me.”

The pop star remains pretty vague as to the details of her personal circumstances. But given her lucrative career and “strong team,” we can easily deduce that her struggle doesn’t come close to reflecting the lives of many other single working moms out there.
