As all eyes were on the arrival of Bad Bunny at the 2021 Billboard Latin Music Awards tonight, and the artist gave everyone a surprise when he showed up arm in arm with his longtime girlfriend, Gabriela Berlingeri. This appearance marks the first time the two have walked a red carpet together — and of course, they did it in style.
Bad Bunny sported a light blue suit with white and black thick-soled shoes along with colored sunglasses, while Berlingeri wore a multi-color dress with a high slit and intricate strings at the top.
Berlingeri, a jewelry designer from Puerto Rico, has always been one to surprise El Conejo Malo’s fans from dropping a track with him titled “En Casita” to shooting his Rolling Stone cover during quarantine last year. As told to Rolling Stone, the two met back in 2017 in a restaurant in Puerto Rico. The encounter happened while he was at dinner with his parents and brother, and they’ve been dating ever since.
The reason behind the big debut for the couple could be given the fact that tonight is a big night for Bad Bunny The chart-topper received a total of 22 nominations over 13 categories from Artist of the Year to Songwriter of the Year — opening up the opportunity for him to break the award show’s record for the most wins in a year. He has three (yes, three) nominations for the top Latin album of the year with El Último Tour del Mundo, Las Que No Iban a Salir, and YHLQMDLG. With the award show still going on, we’ll have to see what this night has in store for him.
