It's a boy for Michael Buble and his wife Luisana Lopilato. The Canadian singer, 37, and the Argentine actress, 26, have just welcomed their son Tuesday morning, August 27 at 2:26 A.M. in Vancouver, British Columbia. The couple names the bundle of joy Noah.
"Overjoyed and filled with gratitude at the arrival of our son Noah Buble. Born this morning, August 27th at 2:26 am in Vancouver, Canada," the new dad tweeted. His wife added on her own Twitter that she was "full of light" and "blessed and happy" with the arrival of the baby boy.
It's a first baby for both Buble and Lopilato. A first look at the newborn has been revealed in an Instagram photo. Buble is pictured wearing hospital scrubs and the red-lipped baby is sleeping soundly on his mother's chest. Both parents are smiling widely to the camera.
Buble married Lopilato in March 2011 in Buenos Aires. They announced her pregnancy in January this year. Earlier this month, he canceled his appearance on "Today" show when she thought she was about to give birth. But it was a false alarm despite her spending seven hours in labor room.
Of what kind of upbringing his son would have, Buble once said, "It will be impossible for him to grow up in a 'normal' way because he will travel on jets, dine in fancy restaurants and meet famous people, but what Lu and I have in common is that we were both raised by families who are very down to earth."
"So I think him being around people like my mother and father and Lu's mother and father will bring a sense of normality. They will certainly keep his feet firmly on the ground - as they do mine."
Instead of wanting their son to follow their footsteps in showbiz, the parents hoped he would become an athlete, either a tennis or soccer player. "I used to play soccer when I was younger so I'd be thrilled if he grew up to be a footballer," he explained. "It's my wife's dream as well."
