Michael Buble’s actress-model wife, Luisana Lopilato, gave a positive update about their son Noah’s battle with cancer at a press conference in Argentina on April 10. Lopilato addressed the crowd in her native language while promoting the film she put on hold to care for her young son.
“Thank God, my son is well,” Lopilato said per an E News report. “When things like those that happened to us occur, your take on life changes. It happened to us. Now I value life much more, the now and the today. I would like to thank people for their support, for the prayers they said, for their love, and I want them to know that they reached us and that it helped us a lot to come through this."
Lopilato and her Grammy-winning husband put their careers on hold when they received Noah’s diagnosis late last year. He began four months of chemotherapy treatments. News of Noah being cancer-free came very recently and she confessed she and her family are still “sensitive” about it. She is, however, very grateful for the huge outpouring of love people have bestowed upon her and her family.
Three-year-old Noah’s medical journey is ongoing. Still, his family is optimistic and happily looking forward to the future. Lopilato added, “My son's recovery is a long process as you all know and he has to continue with check-ups. But we are very happy. We are looking forward to thinking about the future, to seeing our children grow. Seeing Noah grow and being happy gave me the strength to return and finish this film."
While Lopilato works on her film, her Canadian crooner husband is enjoying the success of his Billboard 200 Top 5 album, Nobody But Me, which dropped in October, before Buble announced Noah’s diagnosis on Facebook. Buble’ co-wrote three original tracks for the record, including “I Believe in You,” which Emmy-winning choreographer Derek Hough directed, choreographed and starred in the critically-acclaimed music video.
The album also features a duet with 2016 Best New Artist Grammy Award winner Meghan Trainor. Trainor notably co-wrote the track, called “Someday,” with former One Direction member and recent breakout solo artist Harry Styles. Tour plans to support the album have not been announced.
Prior to this update, Buble posted a Facebook report in February, stating that his son was “progressing well.” Lopilato is an Argentina native. She and Buble also share another son named Elias. The charismatic actress also thanked her fans via Instagram yesterday, posting a message of gratitude in Spanish which translates in part to say, “I feel blessed and embraced by the wonderful energy I receive through the good wishes and prayers of so many people. Today I want to give a heartfelt thanks to each of the people who gave me strength when I needed it most.”
Lopilato’s entire Instagram message is posted below. You can also watch Michael Buble’s romantic, feel-good “I Believe in You” video starring Derek Hough in the attached video. Keep up to date on Michael Buble here at AXS.
