That same year he and Veronica Berti met and became an item. 12-years and a child later, the two tied the knot on March 21st, 2014 –at the Sanctuary of Madonna di Montenero in Tuscany, Italy.
After the ceremony all guests retreated to the newlywed couple’s home in Forte dei Marmi near Pisa for the wedding reception. Berti and Bocelli’s home is not far from Andrea Bocelli’s previous home in Versilia, which is now home to Enrica and her two sons.
The lovely brunette gave birth to the couple’s daughter, Virginia Bocelli in 2012. At the time, Andrea said that he was likely to feel “more protective” now that he had a daughter.
“Fortunately for her, I’ll be old by the time she’s 15,” he joked. “So I tell my sons, ‘You’ll have the responsibility to do what I can’t do anymore.”
The mother-of-one, who is 25 years younger than her husband –serves as his wife, mother of his child and also, manager. She also serves as the vice-chairman for the Andrea Bocelli Foundation. The two have been together since she was 18-years-old.
The couple met at a party and according to The Guardian, he sang to her on that night. He said he was attracted to her for her voice and the way her skin felt.
He said during the interview, they both listen to the same type of music so talking about music is something they both do often. Veronica said about the night they met:
I was 18 and meant to be going somewhere else that night. Everyone was late because of bad weather, so I sat by the piano in an empty room. Andrea sent a friend to ask me to come to his table. We talked about music and where I was born. I used the formal “you” instead of the friendly “you”, and he kept saying to everyone: “Why is she speaking to me like that? We are almost the same age.” I did it out of respect. I had an exam coming up, so I had to go, but he didn’t want me to. “Stay,” he said. “Don’t lose the energy. Don’t lose the moment. Love is something you don’t think about.” So I stayed.
