Michael Bublé and his wife, Luisana Lopilato, have announced that their 3-year-old son, Noah, has cancer.
Noah is the oldest of the couple’s two children.
Bublé made the announcement via Facebook, revealing that the pair are “devastated” at the news, and that they’ll both be putting their working careers aside to invest all of their time and energy into helping Noah fight this diagnosis. He also asked for privacy during this time.
Michael and Lu confirm son’s illness:

“We are devastated about the recent cancer diagnosis of our oldest son Noah who is currently undergoing treatment in the US. 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.”
It has been reported that Noah was diagnosed after visiting the doctor with a suspected case of the mumps.
Just last month, in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Bublé said fatherhood was the best thing to ever happen to him—and that his only regret was not having children sooner.
“I love them more than I’ll ever love anything, or anyone in the whole universe. I think it gave me perspective on life that I think I very badly needed. It’s hard to be able to quantify that level of love. I didn’t even know that there was that color in the spectrum. I didn’t know that level of love existed. But it makes me better at everything. It allows me to pull more emotion and be more honest and to be in the moment. The only regret that I have in my life is that I took this long to have kids, because I had no idea the perspective it would give me. I had no idea how much I would love being a dad.”
Since the news broke, fans have sent an overwhelming amount of prayers and support via Social Media.
