Michael gives an update on Noah's health
After recently announcing he and his wife are expecting their third child, Michael has shared some more positive news with fans about his 4 year-old son Noah who has been battling with cancer. He said: "He's perfect. Clinically speaking, it was a tumour within the liver.
"And the most important thing was to get it out, with clean margins. Because if you do, it goes from being this scary thing to just being tremendous odds.
"No one likes talking about percentages but, honestly, (we have) a percentage where we can live our life, and not live in fear every day. We know we're OK now. But what we went through was f***ing brutal. I'm sorry for the language but..."
The Feeling Good singer admitted it was an extremely difficult time in their lives and even regular meetings with doctors never gave them comfort or hope.
He told the Evening Standard newspaper: "You don't get reassurance, you get the opposite. Everything that they tell you is the worst-case scenario."
Although Michael finds it hard to talk about his son's ordeal, he and his wife are keen to help other families who are going through a similar situation by talking about their experience.
Recalling meeting a woman on a children's hospital ward in Vancouver, he explained: "She said to me: 'Would you forgive me for saying something terrible?' I said: 'Ah... OK...' And she said: 'I was happy when I read about you'. I said: 'What?' 'Well, I knew that it wasn't just me. If it could happen to you, to your son, then, hey, it could happen to all of us'.
"I just don't talk about this... But it's such a deep conflict within me. That's something my wife and I talk about a lot: we feel this sense of responsibility to help other parents. But at the same time, it's my kid's life. This boy is a hero. He's my hero."
Michael and his wife announce they're expecting a daughter
Michael Bublé has had a very tough couple of years to say the least. In 2016, Michael revealed the devastating news that his eldest son Noah was diagnosed with cancer. Michael has recently revealed since that Noah is "progressing well" following his successful treatment.
That's why we were so delighted that Michael and his wife, Luisana Lopilato had some very good news to share this week that they're expecting a baby girl together. After months of speculation, their new arrival is due to be born in under three weeks time and will add to the Bublé clan giving sons Noah (4) and Elias (2) a new baby sister.
Speaking on Ireland's Today FM the 42-year-old singer said: "I've got my first little girl coming in three weeks, and I've actually never said that before in public. I've got a daughter coming."
This very happy news comes after Micheal opened up about his son, Noah's recent battle with cancer. "We are so grateful to report that our son Noah has been progressing well during his treatment and the doctors are very optimistic about the future for our little boy.
"He has been brave throughout and we continue to be inspired by his courage. We thank God for the strength he has given all of us."
Although his son is now over the worst of his fight against cancer, Michael admits the whole ordeal completely changed his world.
He said: “The perspective came on the first day. The perspective came on Halloween, which was the day we got the diagnosis and it all came in one snap. My whole life changed and my perspective on life, my philosophical idea of what it’s all about and what matters, in one snap. And that’s a good thing because I’m thankful for the grace, I’m thankful for the faith and I feel deeply connected to people.”
He added to ET Canada: “My sisters took their kids out of school, they left their jobs… they left everything, came to be with us and then just stay with us. I wish my boy never had to go through all the things he had to go through. My wife, our family, our friends … I want other parents to know that there’s hope, even when there’s not. Somehow, it’s going to be okay.”
"I've been to hell. I don't talk about the whole story, not even to my friends because it hurts too much. It's my boy. He's a superhero, he doesn't need to relive it over and again. But I've been to hell. And you know what, hell seems like a really nice place to vacation compared to where we've been."
