A crooner with his queen. Michael BubléHe met his wife Luisana LopilatoIn 2008, she was in her hometown of Buenos Aires in Argentina.
“I saw her across this parking lot … I remember getting this … it’s weird, but a really heavy, sad feeling,” the “Everything” singer said during a January 2019 appearance on Access LiveHe recalled the moment he first saw Lopilato. “I looked at my grandpa and I said, ‘Grandpa, I’ve just seen the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen and I’m not gonna see her again.”
Despite thinking he’d missed his chance to talk to the Argentine actress, Bublé and Lopilato crossed paths again that very same night.
“She walked in with this guy that made Brad Pitt look like a fat slob,” he said, explaining that he incorrectly assumed the model was dating her male companion. Since the Canada native had spent so much of the evening talking to her guy friend, Lopilato made an assumption of her own — that Bublé was interested in men.
Her initial impression of the jazz singer is not accurate. Rebelde Way actress agreed to go out with her future husband — and her sister served as the couple’s Spanish to English translator at the beginning of their relationship. Bublé told Access LiveHe brought a MacBook with him on their first date to help him translate.
The couple were engaged in November 2009 and made their vows in March 2011. They have four children: Noah, born 2013; Elias, born 2016; Vida, born 2018; and Cielo born 2022.
The Grammy Award winner for Best Family Man acknowledged that Cielo was his greatest achievement.
“It’s funny, if you talk to my manager, he’s a beautiful guy but he’s managed a lot of big careers … he’d say flat out, ‘If Bublé didn’t get married and have those kids he’d be a bigger star, easily, truthfully,’” he said during an appearance on “That Gaby Roslin” podcast in September 2022.
He continued: “My manager always says to me, ‘It isn’t tough to make the decisions kid, it’s tough to live with the consequences of those decisions, so can you live with the consequences of that, Mike? If you put your family first it’s going to hurt our career in those countries, what do you think?’ And, of course, for me, it sucks as I’m telling you here that I’m thinking about it all the time and I’m sitting in bed thinking, ‘Oh, damn.’”
