Alessandro Bocelli is the father of Italian opera singer, songwriter, and record producer, Andrea Bocelli.

His Wife and Children

He was married to a woman named Edi Bocelli. The couple was blessed with two sons, namely Andrea Bocelli and Alberto Bocelli.

He and His Wife Were Advised to Abort Andrea

His pregnant wife was admitted to the hospital due to appendicitis

When the treatment was over, the doctors suggested the couple abort their child as the kid would be born with some disability.

Despite knowing the bitter truth, the couple decided to bring the baby into this world. 

Here is a video where Andrea tells the story of his brave mother.

A few days after the birth of Andrea, the doctors diagnosed him with a disease called “Glaucoma” that left him partially blind. 

Partial blindness turned into complete blindness after he was hit by football on his head at the age of 12.

Relationship With Andrea

He shares a strong bond with his son, Andrea. Although he was not fully supportive of his son’s dreams, he always took care of his son as a good father.

Both of them have argued over time, but the love between them has never declined.

He did not support his son’s dreams because he thought Andrea could not succeed and be independent only with his voice. His son had to get an education to support himself. 

Restraining his son from youthful eagerness and recklessness was only because he was concerned about his son. 

His Son Andrea Has Been Married Twice

Andrae is currently married to his manager, Veronica Berti. After dating for a few years, the couple exchanged wedding vows in 2014.

His son, Andrea, is a multimillionaire. Andrea has a jaw-dropping net worth of $40 million, which he has garnered through his career in the music industry.

In the 20th century, he established himself as one of the most exciting voices in contemporary opera. He even became the most-selling artist in the history of classical music.
