Luisana Lopilato is sharing some happy news with her fans.

On Tuesday, the 35-year-old Argentine actress took to Instagram to announce a big milestone in her life — finally becoming a Canadian citizen.

"I want to share with you one of the greatest joys of my life... Now I am Argentine and Canadian," Lopilato captioned her post in Spanish and English.

The wife of Canadian "Sway" singer Michael Bublé, was all smiles in the photo carousel from her special moment, sporting a red shirt that read "Canada" and waving a small flag.

In another photo, Lopilato posed with her laptop showing her IRCC rep and her phone on Facetime with a shirtless Bublé.

The mom-of-four said this was a privilege — one that's been 16 years in the making.

"Couldn't be better! My husband and my [four] children were born here... That's why being Canadian is a huge privilege, for which I am immensely grateful to God and life."

She then thanked her family for being there for her through the process.

"Thank you Mike and my children for supporting me with every exam! Also thanks to my family from Argentina... Finally, thank you Canada for making me part of this wonderful nation."

Her family and fans rushed to praise Lopilato for the accomplishment.

"I am so proud of you! I love you Luisana!" her star husband commented on the post in Spanish.

"That's so great Lu! Congratulations eh?!" a fan wrote.

"That is wonderful! Congratulations to you! What a proud accomplishment," another added.

Bublé's sister also chimed in to congratulate Lopilato. "We are so so happy and proud, so full of love for you babe! Always! Now, my Canadian sister, let's go eat some poutine and maple syrup," Brandee Bublé quipped.
