One of Canada’s biggest singing exports to the world, Michael Buble, is soon to be a dad to baby number 3. The pregnancy speculations were rife ever since Buble’s wife, Luisana Lopilato, posted her picture on Instagram wearing a loose-fitting top earlier this year. The official confirmation, however, only came when Buble announced it on stage at Juno Awards in March 2018. The 42-year-old singing sensation was performing host duties at the event.
“I can tell you this… you have filled me up with joy and love and luck,” the actor said addressing the audience at what is known as Canadian Grammys.
“Five years ago,” he added, “when I hosted the first time in Regina, you brought me luck, and I was pregnant … I mean, my wife was … I mean, we were pregnant with our first child.” The crowd cheered as he next announced, “here I am, five years later. Oops! You did it again. My wife and I are pregnant with our number three.”
Soon after, he turned his attention to wife, Luisana, also sitting in the audience, and said, “I love you so much, mi amor.”

Baby Gender, Pregnancy, and Parenthood
While speculative reports were circulating on the gender of the baby ever since the pregnancy announcement, Buble made an official comment on that too a few weeks back. Talking about it in an interview to Today FM, the four-time Grammy winner said, “Everything’s good, and I’ve got my first little girl coming in about three weeks. I’ve actually never said that before in public. I’ve got a daughter coming.”
Reportedly, his wife, Luisana is due sometime in July this year. Buble just had a concert earlier this month in London and is now solely focusing on her wife’s pregnancy and family.
Father of two sons before, Noah (b. 2013), and Elias (b. 2016), the Canadian star and family recently went through a trying period when his elder son was diagnosed with liver cancer in 2016.
Dealing with Son’s Cancer
In a joint statement by the couple on Facebook in late 2016, it was announced that their elder son, Noah, had been diagnosed with liver cancer Hepatoblastoma. It also read that the couple was “devastated” upon receiving the news.
“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. Luisana and I have put our careers on hold in order to devote all our time and attention to helping Noah get well. At this difficult time, we ask only for your prayers and respect for our privacy. 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,” the Facebook statement read.
As announced, Buble went on a break from his career and canceled all his upcoming events then. This included a big gig at BBC Music Awards in December 2016.
The Worst Is Over
After going through an initial period of four-month-long chemotherapy and further treatment, Noah, it was announced by the couple, was on his road to recovery.
Talking about her son’s health at a press event in April last year, wife Luisana said, “Thank God, my son is well. When things like those that happened occur, your take on life changes. It happened to us. Now I value life much more.”
In an interview to Susana Giminez, Luisana shared personal struggle dealing with her son’s condition, and said, “There were nights I couldn’t sleep, that I prayed to God because it’s a long process. But thank God the worst is over.”
Father of the family, Buble, too, had, earlier in the same year, opened up about his son’s health while talking to US. He said, “We are so grateful to report that our son Noah has been progressing well during his treatment. The doctors are very optimistic about the future of our little boy. He has been brave throughout, and we continue to be inspired by his courage.”
About Liver Cancer Hepatoblastoma
Buble’s son was diagnosed with a rare cancer type called, Hepatoblastoma. Generally affecting children of tender age, the disease is usually found in those with the history of premature birth. It causes a tumor to be formed in the liver, which, if not treated early, can spread into the lungs.
The disease is rare, however, and is only found in about 10 to 15 children each year. The symptoms include fever, diet loss and subsequent weight reduction, abdominal pains and nausea, and even itchy skin among others.
The Buble Family
Michael Buble is married to Argentinian actress/model Luisana Lopilato. The couple got engaged in 2009 and got married subsequently in March 2011. Luisana has also appeared in Buble’s music video for song Haven’t Met You Yet, and both have been involved romantically ever since.
While the news about his son came as a shock to the world, there was an equal relief among fans on the announcement of recovery.
With a daughter on the way, Buble would surely be excited about having a complete family now. We wish the family best of luck concerning Noah’s health, and that of the mother Luisana, and upcoming baby.
