Michael Buble didn’t want to sing anymore after his son’s battle with cancer.
The ‘I haven’t met you yet’ hitman was devastated when his now eight-year-old son Noah was diagnosed with hepatoblastoma in 2016 and watching the youngster undergo grueling treatment left him left “broken” and no longer cared about his career.
In a joint interview with his wife Luisana Lopilato – with whom he also has six-year-old Elias and three-year-old Vida – for the latest issue of Britain’s HELLO! magazine, Michael said, “I collapsed. I was broken… I don’t think I ever said it publicly, but you know it, Luisana, about me – I didn’t think I would ever return to music. I never wanted to sing again.
“It didn’t matter to me anymore. I didn’t want it anymore.”
Thankfully, Noah has made a full recovery and the 46-year-old singer praised his wife of 34 – who is pregnant with their fourth child – for pulling him out of a dark place.
He continued, “And my wife literally picked me up and brought me back to life, and then somehow she carried me to a point where not only was I fine, but I was better than before.”
No matter what life throws at them, the couple – who wed in 2011 – always bounce back stronger, although Luisana has joked that some days she feels like killing her spouse.
She said: “Most couples say, ‘He’s my best friend, he’s my family. But when I say these things, it’s profound for me. I have such a connection with Mike that no matter what happens between us, we are family. We are a normal couple, a normal family. We fight, and we have days when we’re super, super in love. Yes, it’s mostly amazing, but we have days where we’re not amazing and I want to kill it!”
Michael joked, “Even though she thinks I’m so hot.”
