As Michael Buble’s 3-year-old son Noah continues his fight against liver cancer, the singer has stayed true to his vow of silence! In fact, Michael has dropped out of yet another gig, withdrawing from hosting the Juno Awards next month in order to care for his sick little boy.
Michael Buble, 41, is one doting dad! Focusing all of his attention on helping his son Noah Buble, 3, through his battle with liver cancer, the singer has cancelled another hosting gig — this time with the Juno Awards, aka Canada’s version of the Grammys. Michael had been set to host the award show, but after his and his wife Luisana Lopilato‘s, 29, little boy got sick, he told fans he’d be taking time off work until Noah is healed.

“Our thoughts continue to be with Michael,” shared Michael Cosentino of Bell Media, the network broadcasting the Juno Awards. “We respect his ongoing commitment to his family and look forward to working with him again in the future.” The network’s statement was released on Mar. 9. To replace Michael, the Juno Awards have tapped Canadian comedian Russell Peters and Ontario-born pop singer Bryan Adams.
This isn’t the first time Michael has pulled himself from a hosting gig since his son got sick. Back in January, the crooner withdrew from hosting the BRIT Awards in London, which some had deemed “the biggest gig of his career.” We don’t blame him though for not working during this difficult time. We can only imagine what he and his family must be going through!
Michael and Luisana revealed the heartbreaking news of their son’s diagnosis in a Facebook post this past November. “We are devastated about the recent cancer diagnosis of our oldest son Noah who is currently undergoing treatment in the U.S.,” the couple shared. “We have always been very vocal about the importance of family and the love we have for our children.”
And while cancer can be unpredictable, in February, the couple shared a positive update about their son’s fight, saying that Noah has “been progressing well during his treatment.” “The doctors are very optimistic about the future for our little boy,” they shared in statement. “He has been brave throughout and we continue to be inspired by his courage.” Our thoughts are with the Bubles during this tough time.
