The 30 year-old described her boyfriend as someone â€œvery lovelyâ€ in her life. Christina also tried to explain why she messed up the lyrics, in spite of the fact that she has been singing the National Anthem for big crowds since she was like 7 years old. X-Tina says it will become a popular Trivial Pursuit question and laughs about it.

Christina on her new boyfriend:
Ellen: â€œAnd you have a new boyfriendâ€¦.â€
Christina: (Laughing) â€œI didnâ€™t know you were going to ask me about that?â€
Ellen: â€œIâ€™m not asking, Iâ€™m just telling you incase you donâ€™t know. You donâ€™t have to respond but you have a new boyfriend.â€
Christina: â€œThere is someone very lovely in my life. Yes.â€
Ellen: â€œThatâ€™s all that matterâ€™s is that youâ€™re happy. Itâ€™s hard. Divorce is hard.â€
Christina: â€œIt definitely is hard.â€
Ellen: â€œYou deserve to have fun and date and stuffâ€¦â€
Ellen: â€œDonâ€™t you?â€
Christina on singing the National Anthem:
Ellen: â€œI saw you sing (at the Super Bowl).â€
Christina: â€œThatâ€™s right, I did sing at the Super Bowl.â€
Ellen: â€œI saw it and didnâ€™t see anything. Then it was this huge thingâ€¦then I felt stupid that maybe I didnâ€™t know the lyrics.â€
Christina: â€œI had been singing that song my entire life. I was the youngest anthem singer in my hometown of Pittsburgh, PA. I sang for the â€œSteelersâ€ when I was this big (as a child.)â€
Ellen: â€œHow old were you?â€
Christina: â€œI think 7 or 8 years old. I would sing for them. I think had a moment where I was at the Super Bowl at 30 years old. I took in the moment a little bit too much. Shoot me for appreciating the moment but here I am at the Super Bowlâ€¦singing for a team and in front of the world. And remembering what it was like to be that young and look where I made it now. And then it was like, oh. That night I knew, I just made myself a Trivial Pursuit questionâ€¦In 2011 what female singer, ya know, flubbed the lyrics. Itâ€™s just insane. But I have a really good laugh about it and you get over things. You get back up again and you just prove to yourself and to everyone you that much stronger.â€
Christina has gained a bit of weight after her divorce from husband Jordan Bratman and has also been accused of having a bit of an alcohol problem. However, Christina recently said that she is back on her feet and getting a fresh start, starting with her career.
