Michael Bublé’s son Noah has cancer, the singer confirmed Friday, and he and wife Luisana Lopilato have back-burnered their careers while the 3-year-old fights the disease.
“We are devastated about the recent cancer diagnosis,” the “Haven’t Met You Yet” singer said in a statement on Facebook. He didn’t specify what type of cancer his son has.
“We have always been very vocal about the importance of family and the love we have for our children,” Bublé said. “Luisana and I have put our careers on hold in order to devote all our time and attention to helping Noah get well.”
The singer, 41, is from Canada. His actress-singer wife, 29, is Argentinian. Their 3-year-old is undergoing treatment in the United States, he said.
“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,” Bublé said, asking for privacy.
Noah’s health made headlines previously when he was scalded by hot water in a minor accident at home in Argentina a couple of months ahead of his second birthday. Bublé and Lopilato’s second child, Elias, was born in January.
