Baby Boy on the Way for Michael Bublé

Wednesday was a big day for Luisana Lopilato, husband Michael Bublé jokes — the new pope was chosen from her native country and the couple discovered they’re having a son.

“We are so excited. We have just come from the hospital, and the sonogram was pretty clear — it’s a boy! We are thrilled,” the singer, 37, tells Page Six.

Bublé and his 25-year-old wife, an Argentine actress, had their ultrasound appointment just after learning of Jorge Bergoglio‘s selection. He will be known as Pope Francis.

“She said, ‘It is a sign!’ But there’s no way we are going to call him Frank, even if it did work well for Frank Sinatra,” the dad-to-be jokes.

Bublé and Lopilato will welcome their son in August.

Papo and Gina – really? Did you have to be so nasty at such a sweet time in their lives? I can tell their kid’s already more mature than you are.

papo and gina SO UNTRUE, she is a nice girl from here, actress or whatever but never a gold digger

rolanda on

He’s Canadian, I so so so hope he is not Catholic or Christian or any of those fantasy stripes. Rationalist, I hope????? Name the boy after a secular scientist! Forward forward and away from the Dark Ages!

I like that he’s profane on stage.

BOYS ARE AWESOME!!!!! I have 2 and a Sweet Pea of a lil 3 1/2 yr girl. ❤

Papo is flat out lying. I’m from Argentina. She never dated soccer players, she dated ONE tennis player. She’s never dated an old man either.

Laura on

Pappo and Gina: BULL****!!! She never dated a football player, neither rich old men…The world is fed up with people who talk without knowing.

Eric on

Looks like he got famous and married his Jr. High fantasy.

Marky on

Maybe his middle name will be Francis, or his saint name. Why on Earth would some of you make up rude comments about someone you don’t even know? Seems pretty stupid to me…..

Tracie on

I want sooooooo much to dislike her since she stole my dream man but it’s blatantly obvious they are crazy for each other .They’re going to have such beautiful babies!

why does his voice always sound like its computerized?

Catca on

This couple always looks so darn happy to be together. It’s lovely to see.

Gina, what on earth are you talking about with “anchor baby”? Michael’s Canadian. As far as gold digger, from what I understand, she was a successful actress in her own right. In other words, she has her own money.

congratulations to Michael and his wife, a whole new and wonderful life waits ahead for you, enjoy every minute of it

What?; on

Gina on
