Heart-throb Michael Bublé announced that he is retiring from singing after his son Noah’s battle with cancer just aged three.

Bublé has admitted that he no longer ‘has the stomach’ for fame and says that he’s done with the anxiety that the fame brings.

The singer and his Argentinian wife Luisana Lopilato have been married for seven years and have three children together, sons Noah, aged five, Elias aged two and Vida Amber Betty just 11 weeks old.

The couple put their careers on hold when they found out the eldest son Noah had liver cancer. He says, ‘I actually thought I’d never come back to the music business. I never fell out of love with music, I just needed to put it aside.’ Although Noah is now in remission Bublé says that his perception of life has changed.

“You just want to die,’ he told the Daily Mail’s Weekend magazine. ‘I don’t even know how I was breathing.
