Michael Buble Announces That His Three-Year-Old Son Has Been Diagnosed With Cancer

With Christmas now just weeks away, there is no doubt that the festive season and crooner Michael Buble go hand-in-hand. After all, what is Christmas without a bit of the Buble? While this time of year is usually the busiest and most successful time of year for Mr. Buble, this Christmas will not be quite as happy for the artist and his beautiful young family in light of a heartbreaking new announcement.

In a moving statement that was released on Friday, Buble and wife Luisana Lopilato revealed that their beautiful three-year-old son Noah has sadly been diagnosed with cancer.

“We are devastated about the recent cancer diagnosis of our oldest son Noah who is currently undergoing treatment in the US,” the statement read.

“We have always been very vocal about the importance of family and the love we have for our children. Luisana and I have put our careers on hold in order to devote all our time and attention to helping Noah get well.

“At this difficult time, we ask only for your prayers and respect for our privacy. We have a long journey in front of us and hope that with the support of family, friends and fans around the world, we will win this battle, God willing.”

Noah turned three just a few months ago and his younger sibling Elias is just nine-months-old.
