Getting pregnant is usually a good thing when you are a rich and famous television personality, but it has translated into getting laid off for the year, for Disney diva's Christina Aguilera. Not long after the talented Voice coach announced that not only was she engaged to her boyfriend Matt Rutler, but they were having a baby as well, NBC broke the news that she was being replaced for Season 7. The network announced that No Doubt's middle-aged sex symbol front-woman Gwen Stefani will be taking over X-tina's spinning chair. While NBC hasn't officially fired the baby-bump bearing Burlesque star as of yet, if Aguilera wants to keep the cushy job she should probably put having the third kid off for a least a couple seasons or more.

It was announced late last month that Christina Aguilera is going to be out her Voice coaching job for at least another year thanks to her gigantic baby-bump and ill-timed timed pregnancy.

The increasing reputable TMZ, confirmed that Gwen Stefani's getting Christiana's old job and the "Genie in a Bottle" singer is little pissed about the whole thing:

"No Doubt's lead singer will be on Season 7...which starts taping in June.

"Producers started looking for new blood in February after Christina announced she was pregnant. Makes sense...she'd be 8 or 9 months along by the time Season 8's battle rounds began.

"We're told NBC wanted Christina to stay during her pregnancy but she's having a difficult time already and ultimately bowed out."

The former child star has decided to use the time to focus on other aspects of her career like singing and showing off her belly for the cameras, or so she claims via Twitter:

"So blissful in taking this time for creating all things blossoming new on the horizon...album, baby & beautiful music to come."

Well...there are always worse things that could happen to Christina's mediocre career track--she could always get cast in Burlesque 2: When the Laws of Attraction Die.
