Chart-Topping Singer Michael Bublé Tells CBS SUNDAY MORNING His Son's Illness Was Especially Hard On His Wife

Chart-topping singer Michael Bublé's son's battle with liver cancer was especially hard on his wife, he says in an interview with Tracy Smith for CBS SUNDAY MORNING to be broadcast Sunday, Dec. 16 (9:00 AM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Bublé took a two-year break from performing after the family learned in 2016 that their then 3-year-old son, Noah, had been diagnosed with liver cancer. Bublé says his son responded well to months of treatment.

"I think it cost her more than she ever could have imagined," Bublé says of his wife, Luisana Lopilato. "And I think that what we went through with our kid ...and all of that was - honestly...there was a great cost. You know, love isn't free. Love is not free."

Bublé opens up to Smith about how he and his wife put their careers on hold after the diagnosis, how Noah is doing today, his return to singing and more.

"There was no choice," he says of the decision to stop performing at the time. "No family has that choice. There is no choice. It was take care of business -and there was never any conscious decision ever. There was just, you know, come together as a family, put your head down, you know, pray lots and just survive."

He says he continued singing during his time away from the stage.

"I never stopped singing, ever," he says. "Ever."

Bublé also talks about his childhood and the couple's new daughter, and he jokes that he met Lopilato at the right time in his career. The couple married in 2011.

"There's a part of me that's really happy that, that I'm a famous person because my wife is so beautiful," he says. "I know that if I wasn't and I would walk into rooms with her that they would just assume that I was really wealthy."

CBS SUNDAY MORNING is broadcast Sundays (9:00-10:30 AM, ET) on the CBS Television Network. Rand Morrison is the executive producer.
