November 2008. Gran Rex Theatre, Buenos Aires, Argentina
Already with a renowned musical career, a Michel Buble 33 years old appeared for the first time in front of the Argentinian public and among the first ranks was louisiana lopilato, who at the time was taking saxophone lessons, and her interest in the singer’s musical style – who was once compared to Frank Sinatra – led her to take tickets to see him. She was accompanied by her sister and her friend Rodrigo Guirao Díaz, who would later become one of the first witnesses of her love story.
In the front row of the Gran Rex theatre, the one the 21-year-old actress knew perfectly for the number of seasons she did there with Chiquititas and also with Rebel wayit was Griselda Siciliani with her then partner Adrián Suar. And during the show, she felt that the musician was watching her from the stage. He noticed it once, twice, during the whole recital. “I experienced it as: “What balls he has!”. That is to say, I was with my boyfriend and he was looking at me“, he remembered recently, well after this situation. However, she later realized that Bublé hadn’t really noticed her but the woman behind her: Luisana Lopilato.
Although the old Married with children had bought her tickets, learning of her presence, an employee of a record company invited her to take a photo with the international artist. She was fascinated, of course she wanted to accept, even if she didn’t speak a word of English and she knew that would limit any possible dialogue. Rodrigo Guirao Diaz He accompanied her and ended up being the intermediary in the cordial reception since he spoke the language.
And this exchange was so brief that Bublé thought the model and actor was Lopilato’s boyfriend. That’s why he didn’t insinuate anything then either, nor did he admit that he couldn’t take his eyes off her throughout the show. “It’s never happened to me with anyone what happened to me when I saw her. There was a special connection.”The singer said later, when he was already in a relationship with Luisana, who will be 35 on May 18.
What happened next ? The artist continued his international tour and they never saw each other again. Although they exchanged emails. Luisana, meanwhile, signed up on her official website to receive information about her career. One day he received an email and thought it was a promotion. However, she saw that it was meant for her and that it was personalized. It was by Michael Bublé.
At that time, the actress had decided to learn English and began to study with a teacher who lived opposite her. As soon as he saw the email, he crossed the street to have it translated and help write the response. So she decided it was time to beef up the daily classes and over time she managed to answer those emails on her own.
The first date took place months later, during another visit by the singer to the country. Luisana picked him up and took him to eat at his family home in Parque Chas. It was not a meal for two, but a slightly larger meal since their mothers and brothers were taking part. Some time later, she ended up saying that she had even used a lie that night: to “impress” him – as she once said – she invented that they had a butler and a friend dressed as such to serve them during the evening. . His parents, meanwhile, “put on the nicest clothes”. But none of this was necessary for Bublé: he was already in love the first day he saw her, so he had come back to visit her.
That night he went for everything. “I’m going to marry you”, promised to those who still choose to call a friend, a bond that, between mail and mail, has become a love from a distance. The visits were less sporadic, until they decided to bet on their partner and sat down to think about their professional and personal future. None of them wanted to relegate her career: she would continue to work as an actress from anywhere in the world – over time the doors of other industries would open for her – and he would continue to tour and perform. produce.
They have a home in Canada, Argentina, and also in Hollywood, where they have been neighbors to celebrities like Jennifer Aniston, front, Tobey Maguire, Keanu Reevesas they said in an interview in Susana Giménez’s living room in 2011.
They got married in April of that year, and the marriage proposal was as romantic as it was crazy. Bublé still didn’t have a perfect command of Spanish and decided to memorize what he would say later. What was Luisana’s reaction? She started laughing, she thought it was a joke or that her boyfriend was practicing the language. But no, he was telling her that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her.
They met civilly at the Registrar’s Office on Uruguay Street, Buenos Aires, and two days later held a religious ceremony and party at the Estancia Villa Maria de Cañuelasin the same where they celebrated their marriage Abel Pintos and Mora Calabrese in September of last year. A month later, they again celebrated their marriage in a private room in Vancouver, Canada, with whom they had not been able to travel to Argentina.
Two years later, they began to expand their family: Noah born in 2013, Elijah in 2016. While his second son had only a few memes, life put them to the test: after a series of medical studies, Noah was diagnosed with liver cancer. His parents put everything aside and focused on supporting their son in treatment. They did not give interviews, stopped using their social networks and stopped all their work projects.
Once cured, they announced the happy news with a press release and resumed their activities. There were very few times they spoke publicly about that time, it was that they decided to keep it private with their loved ones, who they relied on at the time to move forward.
“He is the man who accompanied me in good times and in bad times. We went through immense suffering together, which very few know at our age.Lopilato said of her husband when she returned to communicate publicly, after going through her son’s difficult situation. And the musician, when he returned to the stage, expressed: “My wife and I were happy again and fell in love again”.
In 2018, they become parents for the third time with the arrival of their first daughter, whom they decide to call Lifetime. The actress is pregnant and awaiting the arrival of her fourth baby, whose name and gender have not yet been revealed. Even against their own “predictions” since when they had just started their relationship and gave the first interviews, they said that they had a discussion about the possibility of becoming parents, and the musician said that he wanted to have two children.
“He says two babies and two dogs. I love animals but he is allergic. At home I can’t have one, I have a Maltese who has a particular skin. i like big family“, assured Lopilato that he made a project with a large family, he did not even rule out the possibility of adopting. “I want two of our own and two adopted,” said the actress, who is celebrating her 35th birthday today surrounded by love, health and work, accompanied by her husband, three children and a another on the way.
