There was another cute picture of Piero holding a baby…so sweet. All of the guys seem to love babies. You can see it on their faces. They know how to handle them, too. I’ll bet they have never dropped one.
When they came to the Mall of America, we had to stand in line to go up to the table for the autographing of the album, and when we got there it was rush, rush. Then when we were back standing in the crowd and watching, we noticed that people with babies got a lot more attention. The guys would hold the babies and coo to them, the mothers also being involved. Well, Allene and I decided that the next time we were in that kind of situation, we would have to bring babies. Trouble was, where would we get them? Nobody we know would let us borrow one. I wondered, “would a puppy do?” Probably not. But now that there is a new great-grand baby in my family, I might have a chance.
I know that Piero, Gianluca and Ignazio will all be great fathers. Just look at their role models….three fathers who have shown their love for them in supporting their careers by providing what they needed as they grew and developed, and then as their careers blossomed they were always there tirelessly traveling to keep an eye on them. I think that Piero’s father even prepared meals for him on the road. And Gianluca’s papa was always watching over the guys, seeing that everything was okay. We’ve seen Vito in the background, too, keeping tabs on Ignazio. Now there’s a job!!
Isn’t it great the way the guys show affection for their fathers? So much hugging and kissing without restraint or embarrassment. I know it’s the Italian way, but it is obvious that the love they feel is real.
Yes, our boys will be great papas some day. It’s in their genes and in their hearts. Some lucky girls will capture them, and then there will be lucky babies. I’ve always said that there is nothing these guys can’t do.
I can see Piero singing an aria in the opera house with a baby in one arm while gesturing with the other. Ignazio will have to balance his baby while getting pizzas in and out of the oven all the while singing bel canto to entertain the patrons of the Pizzeria. Will it tarnish Gianluca’s sexy image if he is sitting on a stool crooning a love song with a baby on his lap? No way.
Will I be able to see these things from my vantage point way UP THERE? I hope so. But for now I can only imagine what great dads our guys will be. They have the backgrounds and their own loving hearts to accomplish it.
