Canadian singer, Michael Bublé, has opened up about the success of his marriage to Luisana Lopilato, saying that focusing on the other partner’s fulfillment is essential.
Bublé and Lopilato’s marriage has had its fair share of trials as they both went through the news of their son’s battle with cancer. The couple’s eldest son was diagnosed with liver cancer after being hospitalized in an accident.
The singer, in 2011, got married to Lopilato in two separate weddings held in Argentina and Canada, and they both share four kids together.

Michael Bublé Says ‘Focus On Fulfilment’ Is Important In His Marriage
While speaking with Red magazine, the singer revealed that their blissful marriage is due to their focus on fulfillment.
Bublé stated that in order to maintain a successful relationship, he and his wife, Lopilato, understand the importance of the other partner’s fulfillment.
“More than anything, my wife and I understand that each other’s fulfillment is important,” the singer said in the March 2023 issue of Red Magazine per People.
“I’m not saying we’re perfect; nobody is, but we both have that understanding,” he added.
The couple got married in two separate weddings held in Argentina and Canada in 2011. They both have children: Noah, 9; Elias, 7; Vida, 4; and Cielo, who is only five months old.
The “For Once In My Life” crooner explained that when his wife, an actress by trade, is filming, he takes on the role of “daddy on set,” and when it’s his turn (to go on tour), she reciprocates the gesture.
“We don’t care what we do — being together is the goal,” he stated.
Michael Bublé Was Destabilized By His Son’s Cancer Diagnosis
The musician shared that learning that his first child, Noah, had hepatoblastoma in 2016 left him feeling “so unstable and vulnerable.”
“I didn’t know that at the time, but mentally I was so unstable and vulnerable. I made a safe record with producers I liked, and I just tried to protect myself and hold on to a career,” he said.
The singer went on to add, “But I feel really good now, and I was raring to go — like this great weight had been lifted off me. My son was healthy, my kids and my wife were good, and life is good. Why wouldn’t I just explode, wanting to make an incredible record?”
According to Daily Mail, Bublé’s son underwent chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment and is now recovering from his severe illness.
The Event Changed His Life
Bublé, 47, discussed how his son’s battle with cancer forced him to change his priorities and general outlook on life.
“That, of course, changed me in a big way, it changed what mattered to me, it changed how I saw life,” the “Totally Blonde” actor noted.
“For most of my life as an entertainer, especially on stage, I’d become my alter ego. I’d become the superhero I always wanted to be. Then my wife and I went through this unthinkable thing, and I lost that alter ego,” he explained.
Bublé, in a September appearance on the That Gaby Roslin podcast, revealed that he almost pulled the curtain on his career altogether to focus on his role as a father to his kids.
“I think I’m not loving it as much. I think I’m getting close to thinking maybe I can just go and be a dad,” he said at the time.
Michael Bublé Is Set To Temporarily Suspend ‘Daddy Duties’
The singer is billed to resume his UK arena tour and will be away from daddy duties from January till June, per People.
“I think this is the best show I’ve done in my life,” Bublé told the media outlet. “I love the recording studio and filming in front of a camera, but it’s not the same as putting thousands of people in a room, who have all gone through a ton and need that connection.
“What I want to be, without ever preaching, is a unifier,” he stated. “It’s more than just singing songs or telling a joke. Especially given the times we’re living in, I’m really trying to unify people and lift them up.”
