Michael Bublé Tears Up In Emotional "Carpool Karaoke" Episode


Canadian crooner Michael Bublé has so much to be thankful for as 2018 comes to a wrap.

The "Haven't Met You Yet" singer and his wife, Argentinian model and actress Luisana Lopilato, recently welcomed their third child, and he is gearing up to release his tenth studio album, Love, in November.

But most importantly, he has a healthy and happy family, including sons Noah, 5, and Elias, 2, and daughter Vida, 3 months.

In 2016,  Bublé and Lopilato announced that their oldest son was diagnosed with hepatoblastoma, a type of liver cancer, and was seeking treatment in the United States.

At the time, the couple provided occasional updates about their child's health, but it wasn't until after he beat the disease last February that Bublé started to open up about the emotional toll Noah's battle took on the family.

Earlier this month, the 43-year-old admitted that after the diagnosis he and his wife were "just surviving, struggling to survive, and to breathe."

"I much rather would have it have been me," he said. "Many times I wish that it had been."

"It's so hard to have to acknowledge it because it's so painful to talk about."

More recently, the "Home" singer discussed the ordeal while appearing on the latest episode of The Late Late Show with James Corden's "Carpool Karaoke."

Bublé explained that Noah's initial prognosis "was not good," and although he's okay now, "it's too hard to talk about."

"It's so hard to have to acknowledge it because it's so painful to talk about," Bublé told Corden in between singing his biggest hits. "We got the diagnosis and that was it, man, my whole life ended."

For the first time, Bublé opened up about the family dynamic during Noah's treatment and credited his wife for remaining strong.

"When this all started, I became the strength to somehow pull us and lift us and to be positive. When they got [the cancer] out and the chemo was done and they said, "˜We did it, it's good, he's okay,' I fell, I just fell. My wife picks me up now."

Holding back tears, the proud father called his son a "real superhero," before making an emotional plea, urging viewers to donate to Stand Up to Cancer, an organization that raises funds for cancer research and treatment.

There's nothing better in the whole world...when you give that way, the universe gives right back to you. And there's hope and treatments and medicines that haven't been discovered yet but will be discovered because of you. You think you're one little person who can't change, but all of us can completely make that huge difference. If you do it, and you save just one little person, that's it. That's what life is."
