Michael Buble fell in love with Luisana Lopilato at first sight: 'You're my wife, you just don't know it yet'
Michael Buble revealed that it was love at first sight when he met his stunning wife, Luisana Lopilato, who surprisingly thought he was gay
Michael Buble first saw his future wife Luisana Lopilato at a party he was attending after a gig in Buenos Aires. However, Luisana was attending the party with another man leaving the 41-year-old singer thinking "Oh my god, the woman of my dreams, and she’s with her boyfriend."
He had another obstacle to face which was Luisana spoke no English. He managed to muster the courage to talk to the pair and found out, to his relief, that the man accompanying Luisana was her friend and that she did not have a boyfriend.
When he left the party, Michael told the model, "You're my wife, you just don't know it yet!" It is believed that Luisana had told him, "Of course you want me to be your wife, every man wants to marry me, so we will have to see!" The pair have a very adorable love story despite this very unusual first meeting.
Luisana had actually thought that Michael was gay when the two were first introduced to each other.
While speaking on Spanish talk show 'El Hormiguero', Michael shared, "Luisana was with a beautiful (male) friend, a movie star and when they came together I thought they were together and I didn't want to be rude and hit on her so I spoke to him," according to a Canoe report.
"And I was very nice and tried to find out if they were a couple, but I got very drunk, so finally I said to him 'you know? your girlfriend is very beautiful' and he replied, 'no, she is not my girlfriend, she is into you'," he added.
"And I thought, OK, I have a chance. But as I spoke with him all night she was on her phone talking to her mom and saying 'I met Michael Buble tonight, but he is so gay'," he revealed. However, the pair continued to talk and Michael went to visit Luisana and her family three months later and quickly fell in love.
Just a month later, she went to visit his family in LA. The pair got engaged not too long after and ended up tying the knot in Buenos Aires in 2011. Around six weeks later, the couple had a second wedding in Vancouver with Michael's family.
Recently, Luisana defended her husband on social media after fans expressed concern over him elbowing her in an Instagram Live video. The 32-year-old took to Instagram to share, "It is incredible how some human beings are!!" According to our earlier report, she shut down rumors of abuse too.
"While we cross this pandemic, and we live moments of confinement, anguish, fear, loneliness, uncertainties of all kinds! Every day we go out with my husband to live to bring them a little joy, entertainment, and we have to bear to listen and see what malicious people publish who come out to talk about anything and without knowing anything about our family," she added.
"I want you to know that I have no doubts who my husband is and I would choose him thousand times more!! It’s not fair! This person is doing harm and taking advantage of this pandemic where people are suffering, dying and locked up, to have fame and more followers," Luisana continued.
"[These are] lies that I will not allow because [they] disrespect my family, so I ask you who have trusted me so much for years that you don’t allow it either… The world needs more than ever love, hope, values, unity, and solidarity. NOT these types of people," she added.
