Luis Fonsi is living his best life. The “Despacito” singer continues to tour the world and make music hits, while enjoying a happy home life with wife Agueda López and their two kids. The Puerto Rican star, 41, featured in People en Español’s 50 Most Beautiful issue, talked to the magazine about success and what keeps him going.“I’m very blessed,” he admits. “Everything I have lived up until now, the good and the bad, has made me the man I am today.”
IN GOOD COMPANY
Coming home to his wife, Spanish model Agueda López, and their kids Mikaela and Rocco, after touring, makes all the hard work worthwhile. “It’s my best medicine. It cures me of any jetlag or exhaustion,” he says of reuniting with his loved ones in Miami. “There is nothing better than opening that door and getting a hug from your family.”
Fonsi has had a busy year with the release of his ninth studio album Vida (Universal Music Latino) and role as coach in the television contests La Voz (Telemundo) and La Voz Spain. He also kicks off his Vida World Tour in June.
The singer’s most recent hit is “Date la vuelta”, a collab with Nicky Jam and Sebastian Yatra.
The singer’s kids visited him on the set of La Voz and are his biggest inspiration to keep achieving new goals.
“I’m grateful for the lessons life gives me, for the opportunity to wake up every day and be able to hug my kids and watch them grow,” he says.
OUT AND ABOUT
“We enjoy being home, we like to watch movies, play around, take a swim in the pool, and escape to the beach whenever we can,” he says of his free time with wife Agueda López.
Being able to do what he loves and travel the world is not something Fonsi takes for granted.
“I had a lot of family support. My parents accompanied me in this dream of making music and 20 years later they continue to inspire me,” he says, hoping to do the same for his kids as they grow up and find their passion.
When he looks in the mirror today, Fonsi likes his reflection. “I see the image of someone who is grateful, a person who has found the perfect balance between professional and personal life. I see someone filled with desire to grow, to learn, to work and leave a positive legacy.”
