The beautiful meaning behind the names of Michael Bublé’s new daughter

The singer and his wife are surrounding their latest arrival with as much family love as possible.

When the Canadian crooner and his wife, Luisana Lopilato, welcomed their third child last month, it was a joyful celebration after the stress and anxiety of recently watching their son Noah fight and beat liver cancer. Not only was their baby born safe and sound, it was the couple’s first daughter. As Bublé shared on Smooth radio: “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.”

To mark this wonderful new chapter in the family-of-five’s life, the couple has explained the meaning behind the choice of names for their little angel, Vida Amber Betty, inspired by those closest to the singer and his actress wife. While “Vida” means life in Lopilato’s native Spanish, the little bambina shares her middle names with both of her grandmothers: Amber, after Bublé’s mom, and Betty is short for Beatriz, Lopilato’s mother.

Little Vida’s arrival has certainly had a huge impact on both her mom and dad. Lopilato has taken to social media and shared: “How to explain that our heart explodes with love? That there’s not enough hours in a day to think about it. I thank God for making us this gift of life and happiness! Because looking in her eyes is looking at heaven itself.”

As the singer takes to the stage after his recent hiatus, he says he’s prioritizing his family: “I don’t want to miss stuff so as much as we can, we’ll be together.”
