Michael Bublé’s son Noah’s battle with cancer was a huge wake-up call for the singer and his family.
In 2016, Noah was diagnosed with hepatoblastoma, a rare type of liver cancer that rocked the family to its core. After intense treatment, Noah was eventually in remission, but the trauma of it all had a lasting impact on Bublé.
In an interview with Red magazine, the “Haven’t Met You Yet” singer said his son’s cancer diagnosis changed him “in a big way.” He had to lose his “alter-ego” and instead focus on his family. As an entertainer, he had always been able to become someone else on stage. But, the unimaginable thing that happened to his son forced him to lose that alter-ego.
“That, of course, changed me in a big way – it changed what mattered to me, it changed how I saw life,” he said.
Bublé, 47, shares sons Noah and Elias, and daughters Vida and Cielo with his wife of 12 years, actress Luisana Lopilato.
The singer shared how his wife, Luisana, has helped him get through this difficult time. He said that they understand that each other’s fulfillment is important and try to support each other in whatever they do. He also said that they prioritize being together as a family above all else.
Noah’s battle with cancer has also made Bublé understand the importance of life and how we should never take it for granted. He said that it has made him more present and in the moment. He is now focused on enjoying life and cherishing every moment with his family.
“More than anything, my wife and I understand that each other’s fulfillment is important… I’m not saying we’re perfect – nobody is – but we both have that understanding,” he told the publication.
Bublé said, “I won’t be touring for certain months next year because she’ll be filming a movie, and so I’ll be Daddy on set, and then she’ll do the same for me.”
“We don’t care what we do – being together is the goal,” he added.
