Who is Michael Buble’s wife?
Michael is married to Argentinan model Luisana Lopilato.
The blonde beauty was born in 1987 in Buenos Aires, the capital city of Argentina, where she was raised with her brother Dario and sister Daniela.
She became a child actress at the age of eight when she starred in the TV series Mi familia es un dibujo, which translates into English as “my family is a drawing.”
Luisana appeared in Michael’s Haven’t Met You Yet music video and the pair instantly hit it off.
How many children do Michael and Luisana have?
The couple have two children. In August 2013 they welcomed the arrival of first child Noah, and their second son Elias was born in January 2016.
The Sun reported in March 2018 that model Luisana is five months pregnant with the couple’s third child.
It’s thought that their latest arrival will be a girl.

What happened to his son?
Michael Buble’s son Noah was diagnosed with liver cancer hepablastoma in 2016.
Following the diagnosis, the Canadian singer immediately cancelled all of his upcoming gigs, including a planned performance at the BBC Music Awards in December that same year.
Noah was then thought to be undergoing four months of chemotherapy in a bid to recover from the illness.
In a joint Facebook statement in November Michael and wife Luisana admitted they were “devastated” about Noah’s cancer diagnosis but vowed: “We will win this battle.”
Thankfully, things seem to have started to look better for little Noah.
In February, it was claimed that the little boy’s aunt said he was “on the mend”.
And it now seems that little Noah is making even more positive progress after his uncle revealed that he was “doing very well” after treatment.
In July 2018, Michael revealed he almost quit music after he went through ‘hell’ over son’s cancer treatment.
