Michael Bublé reveals son’s ‘unthinkable’ battle with liver cancer forced him to lose ‘alter-ego’

Michael Bublé has revealed his son’s ‘unthinkable’ battle with hepatoblastoma, a rare type of liver cancer, forced him to lose his ‘alter-ego’.

The singer, 47, admitted he felt like the ‘the superhero I always wanted to be’ before being ‘changed’ by nine-year-old Noah’s diagnosis at the age of three in 2016.

And having been married to his actress wife Luisana Lopilato, 35, since 2011, he claimed ‘understanding each other’s fulfillment’ keeps their relationship strong.

‘I’d become the superhero I always wanted to be’: Michael Bublé has revealed his son’s ‘unthinkable’ battle with a rare type of liver cancer forced him to lose his ‘alter-ego’.

Noah had to undergo chemotherapy and radiotherapy following his diagnosis, and is now in remission.

Michael told Red magazine of the ordeal: ‘That, of course, changed me in a big way – it changed what mattered to me, it changed how I saw life.

‘For most of my life as an entertainer and, especially on stage, I’d become my alter ego. I’d become the superhero I always wanted to be.

‘Then my wife and I went through this unthinkable thing, and I lost that alter ego.’

On maintaining a successful relationship, he added: ‘More than anything, my wife and I understand that each other’s fulfillment is important…

I’m not saying we’re perfect – nobody is – but we both have that understanding.

I won’t be touring for certain months next year because she’ll be filming a movie, and so I’ll be Daddy on set, and then she’ll do the same for me. We don’t care what we do – being together is the goal.’

Last year, Michael delved into how his life was thrown into turmoil after his son Noah was diagnosed with cancer in a new interview.

The Canadian crooner revealed to The Mirror on Sunday that he was left feeling ‘so unstable and vulnerable’ after Noah was diagnosed with hepatoblastoma, a kind of liver cancer, in 2016 at age three.

He said: ‘I’ve been through a lot, obviously. When I made the last record [in 2018]my son had just been in remission and I wasn’t ready to come back,’ he explained.

I didn’t know that at the time but, mentally, I was so unstable and vulnerable. I made a safe record with producers I liked and I just tried to protect myself and hold on to a career.

‘But I feel really good now and I was raring to go – like this great weight had been lifted off me. My son was healthy, my kids and my wife were good, life is good. Why wouldn’t I just explode wanting to make an incredible record?’ he said.

Michael also shares children Elias, seven, Vida, four, and Cielo, five months, with Luisana.

The full interview with Michael Bublé is available in the March 2023 issue of Red, now on sale.
