Michael Buble expecting baby boy, won’t name him after pope
Michael Bublé and his wife, Luisana Lopilato, are “thrilled” to be having a baby boy.
“We are so excited. We have just come from the hospital, and the sonogram was pretty clear — it’s a boy!” the singer told Page Six.
The couple found out their child’s gender the same day the Catholic Church elected its new patriarch, Pope Francis from Lopilato’s native Argentina.
“She said, ‘It is a sign!’” Bublé added. “But there’s no way we are going to call him Frank, even if it did work well for Frank Sinatra.”
The Canadian crooner is gearing up to release his album “To Be Loved” on April 23, which includes a tribute to his TV actress wife. The 37-year-old said that his wife’s pregnancy has given 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.”
Bublé and Lopilato, 25, tied the knot in 2011. They announced they were expecting a baby in January via an adorable YouTube video. The tiny tot is due in August. Things couldn’t be further from heartbreak for this guy.
But as he was shooting the music video for his breakup song called “It’s a Beautiful Day,” he joked that the inspiration for the track came from One Direction band member Harry Styles, who made headlines when he and Taylor Swift notoriously dated and called it quits.
“He left me for Taylor,” he said, faking distress. “I’ll be writing about her too, soon.”
