Michael Buble’s 3-year-old son diagnosed with cancer

Michael Buble says his 3-year-old son has been diagnosed with cancer and is undergoing treatment in the U.S.

The singer and his wife, Argentine TV actress Luisana Lopilato, made the announcement about their son, Noah, on Friday.

The singer says in a statement on Facebook that they are “devastated” by the news. Buble says he and Lopilato “have put our careers on hold in order to devote all our time and attention to helping Noah get well.”

The entire statement reads:

“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.”

Buble didn’t say what type of cancer his son has or when he was diagnosed.

The couple also has another son, Elias, who was born in January.
