As Ellen showed a video of Max in action, Christina said: "Look at him, training already to jump off of buildings one day and give me a heart attack - it's awesome!"
Max's interest means that he isn't particularly interested in his mum's starring role in The Voice. But there is one show he would love to see her do.
