Multi-lauded Canadian crooner Michael Buble married Argentine TV actress Luisana Lopilato in a civil ceremony this week. The lovebirds quietly tied the knot in the bride’s native Buenos Aires, The Associated Press said Thursday. They announced their engagement in Jan. 2010.
The two lovebirds happily posed for a gaggle admiring fans shortly after saying “I Do.” Luisana, sporting a violet dress and silver heels, threw a fuschia bouquet of purple orchids into the mob as the newlyweds smooched.
“I’m surprised and overwhelmed by the amount of fans and journalists that came out today. I’m a normal person, despite my job, and I really wasn’t expecting this.”
The wedding comes on the heels of a titan year on the adult contemporary charts for Buble. The 35-year-old Juno-winning musician took home the prize for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album at last month’s Grammy Awards.
Michael and Luisana are planning a full formal ceremony with around 300 guests at a mansion outside Buenos Aires this Saturday. Another wedding in the groom’s homebase of Vancouver is already set for later next month. Mr. and Mrs. Buble will honeymoon in Africa.
Michael dated English actress Emily Blunt for several years before meeting Luisana during a South American concert tour in 2009.
