Last night, Michael Buble made an announcement that strikes fear in the heart of every parent. His oldest son, Noah, 3, with wife Luisana Lopilato, has been diagnosed with cancer. Buble says that their family is devastated and are asking for prayers and privacy while Noah undergoes treatment in the United States.
Celebrities have to strike a delicate balance between sharing information about their children with fans and maintaining privacy for their family. Princess Nobody knows this more than Princess Kate, whose children are literally the faces of a nation, says the Inquisitr. Princess Kate has shared bits and pieces about her children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, but she always keeps their privacy and safety in mind.
Michael Buble and his wife, Luisana Lopilato, have two sons, and their oldest child, Noah, 3 was diagnosed with cancer after he was taken to the doctor with a suspected case of the mumps, according to the Daily Mail. Michael Buble says their family is devastated, but they are going ahead with treatment in the United States.
“We’ve always talked a lot about the importance of family and the love we have for our children.”

Michael Buble, a Canadian and his wife, who is from Argentina, are said to be dedicating all of their time and energy to help Noah get well.
“Luisana and I will devote all our time and attention to help Noah to get better, for now suspending our professional activities. During this difficult time, we ask you to pray for him and please respect our privacy.”
Buble says that the family knows this is a long battle and is grateful for all prayers and positive thoughts.
“We have a long road ahead and we hope that with the support of our family, friends, fans around the world and our faith in God, we can win this battle.”
Michael Buble made the announcement on an hour-long special on BBC last night, which aired in the United Kingdom.
The Bubles also have a second son, Elias, who will turn 1 in January, and Michael Buble has explained that before his children, he didn’t know that this deep level of love existed.
“I just love them so much that part of loving them so much is not giving them everything they want and that is a tough thing for me.”
Michael Buble says that returning to work when Noah wanted him to stay with him was the hardest thing he has ever had to do. Buble needed to wrap some things up so that he could be with his family full time.
“My son Noah is three, Eli eight months, and Noah said to me ‘Poppy, for what are you going?’ I said ‘Well, daddy is going to go and sing.’ And it kills you, he said ‘Please don’t go, I will be a good boy,’ and I think I’m the worst human being in the universe.”
People Magazine says that Noah made news back in 2015 when he was hurt in a household accident in Argentina. Luckily, the burns Noah received were minor, and he healed quickly after a trip to the ER. The family, who make their home base in Argentina, have now temporarily relocated to the United States.
Michael Buble did not give any details as to what type of cancer Noah is fighting, but leukemia is the most common childhood cancer.
