On Thursday the panelist Estefi Berardi surprised with the confirmation of a pregnancy in THE M (America), and revealed that it is Calu Rivero and Fernando Aito de la Rúa, who are expecting their first child together. The low key couple has a love story that began thirteen years ago, and was on hiatus until they met again in 2021. Their lives progressed like parallel lines, focusing the last few years on spirituality and sustainability, and when their paths crossed again they realized they were on the same page.
The common goals are visible with a tour of their respective Instagram accounts, where it can even be seen that they were in the same places several times. However, none of them usually share details of their sentimental life, and that is why the first publication where they are seen walking side by side just arrived this week. “Shine like the sun”wrote Calu – who some time ago adopted the name Dignity– and in the upper right corner of the image added the label that directs the profile of the youngest son of former President Fernando de la Rúa. Turning our backs on a very bright afternoon, the postcard anticipated that there would be news, and for these hours the posting was filled with congratulations for the future parents.
In December 2008 strong rumors of romance emergedand although initially his relatives claimed that it was only a friendship that dated back more than a year, Rivero confirmed the courtship shortly after. “We pamper each other, we seduce each other, we kiss. Ours is like that, it doesn’t need an explanation. We are period”expressed the actress, who at that time was 21 years old and Fernando 32. At that time Calu had already put himself in the shoes of Emma Taylor, the leader of the Divines in fiction Ugly Ducklingand had also commissioned a French character named Juliette in Almost angels.
When they had been in an intense courtship for four months, more than once the press I asked him if he had met his sister-in-law, nothing more and nothing less than Shakira, who was in a relationship with Antonio de la Rúa. “I don’t know her, but why not meet her? I admire her as a singer, as I do with all the women who reach such heights thanks to their talent and vocation”, he answered. Due to the secrecy that characterized them, the couple dissolved away from the media flashes and the reasons did not transcend.
During the coronavirus pandemic, the actress had made her relationship with the Russian documentary filmmaker Andrey Manirko official, and although they even opted for coexistence, they later decided to go their separate ways. In April 2021, photos of Calu embracing Aíto on the Uruguayan beaches of San Ignacio, on a walk at sunset. So they realized that love had resurfaced, and a year and a half later they are sweetly expecting their first child.
In the program that leads Angel of Brito, Berardi said that the actress had confirmed the pregnancy, but asked her for a few days to make it public since she first wanted to tell her grandmother, who lives in her native Catamarca, in person. With the approval of the artist, the news was spread, and so far none of the protagonists raised their voices on social networks.
In recent years, Aíto has made several trips, and settled for a time in Amsterdam, where conducted research with a team of specialists in the Fungi Kingdom. In dialogue with Radio 10, he explained that the objective is to discover the therapeutic benefits of “psilocybin”, a component present in hallucinogenic mushrooms. “When I started to find out, I understood that here was a possible solution for the future and it gave me a lot of intrigue. I traveled to the Netherlands, I connected with highly specialized people at universities, with neuroscientists, doctors, who eventually became friends and co-workers.”, he counted.
“Hopefully science shows that it can help, it is the only objective: to collaborate with mental health”, he remarked. In his Instagram account he defines himself as “a seeker, a student, a pilgrim with the intention of understanding himself and sharing the experience”, making it clear that he values spiritual life and connection with nature, while just like Cal.
