Michael Bublé Reveals it’s His Wife That Has Carried Him Since His Son Noah is in Remission for Liver Cancer
Michael Bublé appeared on an episode of Carpool Karaoke with James Corden recently. The light-hearted segment that can leave you crying with laughter took a different tone when Corden drove around with Canadian singer Michael Bublé.
Corden touched on the Grammy winner’s son Noah’s battle with cancer and it left Bublé hardly able to speak about the painful experience he and family went through. It left viewers aching for the ballad singer.
Bublé admitted to Corden that he credits his wife Luisana Lopilato for keeping their family together. “When this all started, I became the strength to somehow pull us and lift us and to be positive,” the Grammy award-winning singer, 43, said. “When they got [the cancer] out and the chemo was done and they said, ‘We did it, it’s good, he’s okay,’ I fell, I just fell. My wife picks me up now.”
Bublé and Lopilato learned in 2016 that their son Noah who was 3-years-old at the time had liver cancer. Noah went through chemotherapy and is now in remission. Even though the diagnosis was devastating for the family and Noah thankfully has a happy ending it’s still difficult for the singer to talk about.
“It’s so hard to have to acknowledge it because it’s so painful to talk about,” he explained to Corden in the episode. “We got the diagnosis and that was it, man, my whole life ended.”
Bublé also thinks of his 5-year-old son as a real-life superhero. “It’s funny, I know he’s 5 years old and I say to him — cause he loves Spider-Man, we love Spider-Man — And I always say to him, ‘Spider-Man’s amazing, Superman’s amazing, but they’re fake; they’re not real. You’re a superhero, you’re my hero, my real superhero,” an emotional Bublé said of his son.
Before Corden and Bublé’s last duet the “Haven’t Met You Yet” singer urged viewers to call and donate to Stand Up to Cancer a charitable foundation that helps with research to find a cure for the disease.
“There’s hope and treatments and there’s medicines that haven’t been discovered and will be discovered because of you,” he said. “You think you’re one little person who can’t change, but all of us can completely, completely make that huge difference. If you do it and you save just one little person, that’s it. That’s what life is, that’s all that this is. Simple.”
