Michael Buble's wife Luisana Lopilato has opened up about their son's cancer diagnosis

“It’s devastating for any parent to receive the news we did when Noah fell ill,” said the actress, 30, during a TV interview she gave in her native Argentina. 

“Mike wasn’t with me at the time. He was just about to do a very important interview in England and I couldn’t get hold of him on the phone so the day I found out Noah had something in his stomach and the doctors didn’t really know what it was and whether it might be a tumour, I got a flight to the States.” 

Upon hearing the news Michael, 41, who was also due to host the 2017 Brit Awards, cancelled everything and headed back to the US as the three-year-old began treatment. 

Thankfully it now seems Noah is on the road to recovery, with Luisana adding: “Thank God the worst is now over but this is a long and ongoing process.” 

Last month Michael gave a speech at the Governor General’s Performing Arts Awards in his native Canada, saying: “My entire life has been inspired by how my family has made me feel – my wife, my children, my parents, my sisters.”
