Michael Buble, wife Luisana welcome baby boy, name him Noah
Michael Buble is probably doing a moondance right about now.
The “It’s a Beautiful Day” singer and his wife, Luisana Lopilato, have welcomed a baby boy.
“Overjoyed and filled with gratitude at the arrival of our son Noah Buble,” the crooner said Tuesday, making the announcement with an Instagram photo of himself, his wife and their new son at a Vancouver hospital. Daddy is wearing a surgical cap and scrubs in the photo, while the plump-lipped tot sleeps on his mother’s chest.
New moms can only dream of looking as good as Lopilato after childbirth.
Baby Buble was born in papa’s native Canada on Tuesday morning at 2:26 a.m, he said.
Noah is the first child for the singer, 37, and his wife, 26, an Argentine actress, who married in 2011.
The new parents announced they were expecting their son in January via a 22-second YouTube video set to his hit single “I Just Haven’t Met You Yet.” In March, they shared the news that their child would be a boy.
It’s a big year for Buble, who in April released his latest album, “To Be Loved,” which bears a tribute to his wife titled “Close Your Eyes.”
“It’s an unashamedly heartfelt tribute to the strength of women, and how much men depend on them,” he told the Daily Mail. “And people call women the weaker sex. How foolish is that?”
Buble said his wife’s pregnancy gave him a new outlook on his career and family.
“I used to worry about how the single would do and how the record would sell,” he told the Associated Press. “And the truth is, I love this record. I’m so proud of it. But at the end of the day, if it sells 10 million or 10 copies, I’ve got bigger fish to fry. I’ve got a wife and a kid I love very much.”
