Singer Christina Aguilera put touring on hold for 10 years, and her kids are the reason for that.

Christina Aguilera made waves last year when she announced she would never be a coach on "The Voice" again.

Now the 38-year-old mom to 4-year-old daughter Summer Rain and 11-year-old son Max Liron has opened up even more about her decision to leave the show.

Talking about balancing motherhood with her career Christina said, “It’s definitely not easy. I will openly say that the key is truly making sure that they always feel safe and always feel connected.”

Christina added that she took "The Voice" job because it was stable for her kids compared to a touring schedule. “I was so scared to be on tour for so long. It took me a long time. I originally took the seat on 'The Voice' because it kept me in a little bit of a more grounded position for my children."

"But after a certain amount of time, of course, the artist in me was like, ‘I have to evolve!’ I was just very afraid of going out on tour and the instability I felt it would maybe impose on my children," she added.

The singer says she’s happy to be flexing her creative muscles again, but only if her children continue fulfilling their own passions.

“I always want to make sure they feel their own vibes and interests are being met first. Then I can relax and be creative,”  she said.
