Celebaby: A Boy For Buble

19 March 2013

On Saturday, I told you about the (earth shattering) celebaby news that was Alec Baldwin and his wife, Hilaria (which I can't help hearing as 'hilarious', in my head), are expecting a baby girl.

Well, there's been another celebaby gender announcement: Michael Buble and his wife, Luisana (which I can't help hearing as 'Louisianna', in my head. Do you do that? Hear/read names differently to how they're spelled, and once you've done it once you keep doing it?) are expecting a little boy.

It's the first child for both of them, and he's due in August.  Michael has had this to say about the scan and potential baby names:

We are so excited. We have just come from the hospital, and the sonogram was pretty clear, it's a boy! We are thrilled!

'We are thrilled' - it always makes me laugh when people say that, they're hardly going to say they're really disappointed! And as far as names go - well, his wife is Argentinian and, of course, we now have an Argentinian pope.  Apparently she told Michael that it was a sign, but Michael says there's no way they're going to call their son Frank (short for Francis, as in Pope Francis I) even if, and I quote, "...even if it did work well for Frank Sinatra!"

And on impending fatherhood itself, it would seem that the ultra cool, usually smooth Mr Buble is already feeling more than a little nervous:

It's the weirdest thing. I'm scared; I don't know what I'm doing. My friends are basically laughing at me, telling me that I'm never going to sleep again and there's going to be poop everywhere, but I think the good stuff is going to outweigh the bad.

We'll remind you you said that Michael, when you're sleep deprived and wondering if you'll ever feel human again!

What do you think?
