Michael Bublé is a Canadian singer known for his smooth, silky voice and charismatic stage presence. But, understandably, he has been preoccupied with his family in recent years.
Noah Bublé, the Bublé family’s young son, was diagnosed with hepatoblastoma, a type of liver cancer, in 2016. Noah was only three years old when his family received the devastating news.
Bublé and his wife, Argentine actress Luisana Lopilato, put their lives and careers on hold immediately.
“Everyone understood in my world what my priority was,” Bublé told People. “We all go through things. You just hope you learn something about yourself and you learn something about the people with you.”
Noah was reportedly “on the mend” in February 2018 after undergoing chemotherapy. He went into remission last year, at the age of 5, after undergoing surgery and chemotherapy.
Michael Bublé says his son’s cancer diagnosis has changed him forever.
“You don’t go through big things in your life, dramatic things like I’ve gone through or my wife has gone through without it having an effect on you.”
The Canadian actor has been extremely guarded about his son’s privacy and has refused to reveal any details about Noah’s treatment. However, he appeared on “The Late Late Show with James Cordon” last year and discussed his son’s cancer.
Bublé cried as he said Noah’s story “is too hard to talk about” and thanked Jesus Christ for his 5-year-old son’s remission.
“We all moved and we lived at [Children’s Hospital Los Angeles] and we just had the best doctors and, God, thank you, Jesus Christ.”
Bublé continued: “I’m not OK. My wife and I, when this all started, I became the strength to somehow pull us and lift us and to be positive. And when they got [the cancer] out, and the chemo was done, and they said, ‘We did it, it’s good, he’s OK,’ I fell. I just fell.”
“My wife picks me up now,” he added.
The father continued, tearfully, about Noah’s love for superheroes such as Superman and Spiderman.
“They’re fake,” he said. “They’re not real. You’re a superhero. You’re MY hero. A real superhero,” Bublé said to his son.
