Veronica Berti drew a lot of media attention when she became the better half of the legendary Italian singer, Andrea Bocelli. Her husband is known for his captivating voice with which he has produced a good number of trending songs. Such songs include “The Prayer”, his duet with Celine Dion which earned him the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song.
Veronica sees her husband as very cool and someone who you cannot easily pick a fight with. Apparently, this has contributed to the marital bliss they are currently enjoying. Here are untold truths about Andrea Bocelli’s wife Veronica Berti and their family life.
Veronica Berti’s Childhood and Family Members
Her exact day and month of Veronica Berti’s birth is not public knowledge but her year of birth is recorded as 1984. Her country of birth is Italy which makes her an Italian national, but there is a dearth of information on her family background though it is common knowledge that she is the daughter of Ivano Berti. While the identity of her father, Ivano, is public knowledge, information on the identity of her mum remains elusive. It is also not known whether she is an only child or comes from a large family.
There is equally no information on the educational institutions she attended neither do we have the details of her qualifications but she came into contact with romance at the age of 18 when she met her husband Andrea at a party.
A Look at Her Brief Acting Career
Prior to her official union with the legendary singer, Andrea, Veronica was a popular actress best known for her works in Great Performance – a PBS cult television series of performing artists where she came in as herself. She also appeared in Andrea Bocelli Live from Florence – her husband’s music documentary. In 2018, she appeared with her husband and stepsons in the documentary, Celebrity Fight Night in Italy.
While she was busy with her acting career, she also played the role of a manager to her husband, Andrea and in 2006, she assumed the office of the Chief Executive Officer of the Almud – Bocelli’s currency management office.
Despite the huge age gap between Veronica and her spouse, they appear to share a great affinity because, according to them, the age difference has never been an issue.
Veronica Berti and Andrea Bocelli’s 12 Years Relationship
Berti’s love story with Andrea is amazing. The actress met her husband in 2002 when she was just 18 years of age. Both Andrea and Veronica happened to be at the same party, Andrea invited her over to his own table and a conversation ensued between them. Not long afterward, their romance blossomed and consequently, the legendary singer ended his first marriage and commenced a dalliance with Veronica. Veronica then had Virginia, her first child with Andrea, on the 21st of March 2012. When it was time for the public to meet their adorable daughter, she was introduced in a grand photo session.
Facts About Their Private Wedding
A couple of years later, their relationship culminated in a marriage ceremony on the 21st of March 2014. It was a private affair held at the Sanctuary of Montenero located in Livorno, Italy. Their wedding date bears double significance as it also commemorated the second birthday of their daughter, Virginia. Notable among the wedding guests were her husband’s ex-wife Enrica Cenzatti, as well as her two sons – Amos and Matteo.
Veronica Berti looked radiant as she left the church in the arms of her husband amidst confetti and well wishes from family and close friends. Their wedding finery came from the best labels; Andrea wore a Corneliani suit in blue while his bride was angelic in an Ermanno Scervino double silk gown with a quilted crepe de chine padded tunic covering her arms.
What About their 25 Years Age Gap?
The principle of age being just a number also applies to the love life between actress Veronica and the famous tenor singer, Andrea. The singer was 55 years old when he married his actress wife who was aged 30 but despite the huge gap between their age, these two famous celebrities chose to stick to each other through thick and thin.
The couple opened up about their union in an interview session with Guardian. According to the legendary singer, the 25-year- age difference that exists between them even contributed to making things easier. He also mentioned the fact that both his parents had a significant age gap, so marriage with a huge age difference was not new in his lineage. Presently, the Bocelli family lives in their Miami mansion – a colonial-inspired contemporary building with a total of 7 bedrooms and a large sitting room by the poolside.
How Much is the Couple Worth?
Veronica’s financial status before 2002 when she met Andrea cannot be ascertained but as an actress and a show host, there is no doubt she made a reasonable amount for herself. However, much of her financial strength comes from her role as her husband’s manager. While her net worth is still under review, we believe she has a share from her husband Andrea Bocelli’s net worth of about $40 million.
Veronica Berti is Passionate About Helping People
