Christina Aguilera's life may look pretty different these days with the addition of her baby girl, but back on set at The Voice, not much has changed.
Back as a coach this season after taking a break to spend time with her 6-month-old daughter Summer Rain, Aguilera received a warm welcome from Blake Shelton and Adam Levine when she returned, as seen in the exclusive behind-the-scenes clip below.
