As he entered the automobile of James Corden for a special “Stand Up To Cancer” episode of “Carpool Karaoke,” Michael Bublé looked happy, healthy and without a care in the world.
Yet, looks can be deceiving.
In fact, Bublé is obviously still dealing with the ramifications of the devastating cancer diagnosis that his son Noah received when he was just three years old.
“It’s so hard to have to acknowledge it because it is so painful to talk about,” Bublé says in the episode that was released on Saturday, October 27. “We got the diagnosis, and that was it man. My whole life ended.”
Indeed, Bublé and his wife Luisana Lopilato were thrust into a life that no parents wants to find themselves in.
“We took it day by day,” he says as tears began to fall. “We all moved and lived by (Children’s Hospital Los Angeles) and we just had the best doctors. God, thank you Jesus Christ.”
Luckily, Noah is now five years old and is doing well. Yet, the ‘Haven’t Met You Yet’ singer says he still is dealing with the pain surrounding his son’s past plight, and relies on his wife to get through.
“When this all started I became the strength to somehow pull us and lift us and be positive,” he said. “When the chemo was done and they said ‘We did it,’ ‘We’re good, he’s OK,’ I just fell. My wife picks me up now.”
