On Friday, Canadian singer Michael Bublé pinned a post to his Facebook wall, revealing that his 3-year-old son, Noah, was diagnosed with cancer. This is obviously heartbreaking news, but Bublé and his wife, Luisana Lopilato, are staying positive, and counting on the support they receive from "family, friends, and fans around the world."
In his statement, Bublé wrote:
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.
Besides Noah, the couple also has another young son, 11-month-old Elias. In October, Bublé appeared on Entertainment Tonight, where he talked about his overwhelming love for his kids, saying,
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.
Sending lots of love and good thoughts to the whole family.
