There’s nothing like sweet music to spark the romance, but dad-to-be Michael Bubl would take a bawling baby to heat things up with wife Luisana any day.
“I’m more in love with my wife than I ever was,” the singer-songwriter tells Entertainment Tonight Canada Tuesday.
But only recently did Bubl , 37, learn the real reason behind their successful relationship.
“I had my mom and dad over the other night and … I asked them, ‘How do [you] do it?’ My dad said, ‘I love your mom a lot, but the key is I like her,’” he says.
“We fight … but we like each other. Honestly, I never had a woman in my life where I didn’t need anyone else. I didn’t need to go on holiday with another couple — just with her, she drives me nuts enough.”
Currently pregnant with the couple’s first child, Luisana’s cravings are nothing short of crazy, says Bubl .
“Some women crave pickles or ice cream. My wife wants blood sausages. Sausage made of congealed blood,” he shares. “And I promise you, she hated it her whole life and now she said, ‘Mike, I want some blood sausage,’ and it’s like, ‘What the hell?’”
From keeping up with Luisana’s cravings to prepping for parenthood, Bubl has been busy with it all — thanks to a few changes to the singer’s touring schedule.
“I used to go for a month and a half or a month and then I would take a week off. And now the schedule is three weeks on, two weeks off,” he says.
Noting that while his career is “important,” the first-time father clarifies that his personal life will always take priority over any professional commitments.
“I just don’t want to look back and say, ‘God, I should have been there more,’ because I have a feeling that I’ll never look back and say, ‘Jeez, I should have worked more,’” Bubl explains.
