Pablo Alborán – personal Life
Brown-eyed Pablo admits to being a lover of licorice, popcorn, and Nutella, though not all at once. He claims not to care too much about his physical appearance (easy to say when you’re as good looking as he is) but he loves to hang out in jeans and scarves and loves the colour black.
He said that if he could change one thing about himself, it would be his height. At 1.74m, he would love to be taller although we don’t think that’s too shabby at all.
A lover of football, Málaga is his favourite team, although he also enjoys watching Barca play and his favourite player is Messi.
Pablo’s mother is French, and he has been very vocal in the events after the Paris attacks including holding a sign, No to Terrorism, on stage during his tour.
As far as romance goes, Pablo is a very private individual. One thing’s for sure, he’s handsome enough to be the pinup for many a man or woman.
