Michael Buble announced on Facebook early Friday morning (Nov. 4) that his three-year-old son Noah had been diagnosed with cancer and that he and wife Luisana Lopilato would be stepping away from their careers to focus on Noah’s treatment.
“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,” the Canadian singer wrote in the FB statement. “Luisana and I have put our careers on hold in order to devote all our time and attention to helping Noah get well.”
Buble released his ninth studio album, Nobody But Me, on Oct. 21 — which currently sits at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 — and was set to host the 2017 Juno Awards.
“At this difficult time, we ask only for your prayers and respect for our privacy” he continued. “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.”
