EXCLUSIVE: Michael Bublé shares exciting new details about daughter Vida

By Ally Parker August 3, 2018

And yes, we asked about new music!

Michael Bublé and wife Luisana Lopilato welcomed a baby girl, Vida, to their family of four just one week ago.

And if we're honest, we've been grinning ever since we heard and pleased as punch for the hit-maker and his family.

But since Luisana's announcement on Instagram, we haven't heard much more from the fam of five so decided to ask ourselves.

After all, when there's a brand new bubba on the scene and an upcoming show, you've simply got to know how life's going.

So, how is Vida? How is she doing? 

Well, according to Michael, she's nothing short of a "blessing."

"It was a beautiful miracle for us. We always wanted to have a little girl and we have two beautiful boys so it was perfection."

"For people that don’t know Vida means Life in Spanish," he added.

The 'Haven't Met You Yet' singer went on to explain the impact a bouncing - and screaming - baby had on his two older children, Elias and Noah.

"My boys love her. It’s sweet; they’re very gentle," he told smoothfm.

"Those first days as a parent are fun. You don’t have a lot of time to do stuff but there’s a lot of doting and family coming over. It’s pretty great."

Having a baby girl is often seen to be a big change after boys but Michael explained that for him, the experience has been about the same:

"Everybody says it’s so different. But I don’t feel different I feel just as blessed and fortunate as the first time."

"I don’t get out of nappy duties," he continued, touching on his upcoming show.

"My kids are going to come with me. The family is travelling as much as we can. I don’t want to miss stuff so as much as we can, we’ll be together."

"I have a feeling this girls’ going to be tough," he added when asked if he was planning on taking Vida to any Vancouver Giants Ice Hockey games.

"I think it’s more rugby for her."

With Michael's upcoming show, his big comeback since taking time off with son Noah ill, there were a few other questions on our minds.

Was he feeling the pressure? What could we expect from the new show? Does he need a babysitter? (Okay, we skipped that last one).

"I’ve always felt like, Australia’s been such a massive part of my life and success. It was one of those things where my management called me and were like, ‘We know the baby’s coming right then,’ and there’s other work I’m back and forth doing, but I was so excited. It means so much to come and do it and be asked. It’s exciting for me, it really is," he explained.

He added, "There are no nerves."

"There is this sense of great and deep appreciation that I get to what I love and be surrounded by these beautiful souls.

I think a part of that is, when you go through hard things in life – and all of us have and all of us will – that gives you perspective and that perspective gives you better appreciation for the good times. It’s really allowed me to really sink my teeth into those moments. And I do enjoy them. So much."

"I love what I do. I love the connection and truly enjoy every moment. It’s a blast. It’s basically a big karaoke sing along. [It’ll be] a lot of laughter, a few tears and – I hope – complete entertainment," he said of the upcoming show.

And as for new music...

"I think there’s a record coming out in October. It’s been mastered, it’s been finished," he told smoothfm.

"It [the record] was my therapy and I put a lot of love into it."

"The whole world needs love and romance. I think I’m pretty good at doing it, I genuinely love doing it and I think people are going to dig it."
