Michael Bublé has announced the adorable name of his newborn daughter, just days after his wife gave birth.
The singer and his other half Luisana Lopilato welcomed their second child on 26 July and have now revealed they’ve called her Vida Amber Betty. How sweet is that?
Speaking to US publication People magazine, the Canadian star’s rep confirmed the exciting news while revealing the meaning behind the unusual name.
“The family is back home and are overjoyed with the new addition,” confirmed Michael’s rep.
Vida translates to “life” in Luisana’s native language of Spanish, while the newborn’s middle names take inspiration from her grandmothers.
Amber is the name of 42-year-old Michael’s mum while Luisana’s mum is called Beatriz.
This comes after mum-of-three Luisana – who’s been married to Michael since March of 2011 – confirmed she’d given birth to the little one on Instagram last week.
Sharing a snap of her daughter’s hospital band, Luisana’s translated caption read, “I thank God for making us this gift of life and joy! Because to look at his eyes is to look at the sky itself!”
She then added, “We love you to infinity and beyond. We were waiting for you not only to grow as a family … you gave us light, hope, finally you are and you will be our Soul Life!”
The couple, who are also parents to sons Noah, four, and Elias, two, have been very open about their eldest son Noah’s battle with cancer, after he was diagnosed in November 2016.
At the time of Noah’s illness, both parents had announced career hiatus’ to focus on their son’s health.
Thankfully, in May of last year the couple confirmed that their eldest had recovered and life could continue as normal.
Luisana shared, “Thank God, my son is well. When things like those that happened to us occur, your take on life changes.”
She added, “It happened to us. Now I value life much more, the now and the today. I would like to thank people for their support, for the prayers they said, for their love, and I want them to know that they reached us and that it helped us a lot to come through this.”
Michael also revealed that he thought his music career would be over, saying, “I truly thought I would never come back to music.”
“Family is what matters. The health of my children is number one. The relationship with my family, my wife, my faith — all of it is easily number one.”
