Michael Buble & Wife Luisana Lopilato Are Having A Baby Boy

Michael Buble and his wife, Luisana Lopilato, are expecting their first child and the proud papa-to-be has revealed the gender of their baby.

“We are so excited. We have just come from the hospital, and the sonogram was pretty clear, it’s a boy!” the 37-year-old singer told New York Post’s Page Six. “We are thrilled.”

For Luisana (an Argentinian actress), finding out she is carrying a baby boy on Thursday was extra special, as it was also announced on Thursday that the new pope was selected from her native country.

“[Luisana] said, ‘It is a sign!’” Michael said, adding that they will not be naming their son after Pope Francis. “There’s no way we are going to call him Frank, even if it did work well for Frank Sinatra.”

The couple’s baby is due in August.

As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Michael and Luisana announced they were expecting in January via a video message posted on Facebook.

In the clip, a message reads, “Michael, Lu and… Mini Buble!!!” before revealing a shot of an ultrasound of the baby.

The soon-to-be parents married in March 2011 in Buenos Aires, then celebrated with a second ceremony in May in Michael’s native Canada.
