Canadian singer Michael Bublé and wife Luisana Lopilato have welcomed their third child into the world.
Vida Amber Betty Bublé was born on Wednesday, July 25th, weighing in at 6 lbs, 1 oz. Lopilato announced her arrival on Thursday in an Instagram post showing the baby’s hospital wristband in black and white.
“How to explain that our heart explodes with love?” Lopilato wrote in her native Spanish. “That there’s not enough hours in a day to think about it. I thank God for making us this gift of life and happiness! Because looking in her eyes is looking at heaven itself!”
Bublé’s reps confirmed to People the baby is named Vida–Spanish for “life”– with Amber and Betty coming from the Canadian singer’s and Argentinian actress’ mother’s names, respectively.
Vida is the family’s first baby girl. Elias, their middle son, was born in January of 2016, while Noah, their first born boy, arrived in August of 2013.
Lopilato’s pregnancy was confirmed last February, but it was another month’s wait before she debuted her baby bump at the Canadian Juno awards in March. Wearing a flowing black sequin gown, she made no attempt to hide her growing belly as she walked down the red carpet in Vancouver, British Columbia.
The return to happy tidings is a welcome move for the Bublé family that has been mostly out of the spotlight since Noah’s terrifying diagnosis. Michael took two years off from his singing career to devote himself fully to Noah’s care after being stricken with stomach cancer at the tender age of three.
Thankfully, Noah made a full recovery and Bublé is back on stage. He was recently in London where he told eager fans how grateful he was to be back to work. “It has been two years since I’ve been on stage,” the 42-year-old Canadian crooner said. “Like any human, of course, I worried that whatever I had at one point was gone. But after two songs, I’m better than I was before.”
After that July London concert, Bublé must have hurried home as Lopilato would have been due any day. The family was remarkably quiet leading up to the birth, so we have no information on where exactly Vida was born. All we know is that the baby is healthy, the family is happy, and Bublé will be back on tour sometime in the near future.
Congratulations to this adorable growing family!
