Singer Michael Bublé and wife Argentine actress Luisana Lopilato are putting their family first after revealing their 3-year-old son is battling cancer. Michael recently announced his son Noah's illness on his Facebook page:
“We are devastated about the recent cancer diagnosis of our oldest son Noah who is currently undergoing treatment in the US. We have always been very vocal about the importance of family and the love we have for our children. Luisana and I have put our careers on hold in order to devote all our time and attention to helping Noah get well. At this difficult time, we ask only for your prayers and respect for our privacy. We have a long journey in front of us and hope that with the support of family, friends and fans around the world, we will win this battle, God willing.”
Michael had recently been promoting his new album "Nobody But Me" which was released a few weeks ago.
Michael Buble has described his new fragrance as “love in a bottle”.
The singer is gearing up to release his new scent for women, By Invitation by Michael Buble, on 11 September (16).
Speaking about the fine perfume, Michael said he wanted it to epitomise everything he is about.
“The idea was to create a special ‘invitation’ to fans into my new world of fragrance,” Michael explained in a statement. “I’m inviting women to enjoy a beautiful scent that represents my personal taste and imagination. By Invitation is what I’d call ‘love in a bottle’.”
The fragrance is described as a “glamorous floral oriental, encompassing the iconic flowers of love”, and has notes of red fruits and bergamot combined with Lily of the valley, peony and wild jasmine as well as sandalwood-musk and vanilla.
It also looks as good as it smells, in a elegantly-shaped bottle suspended in a gold bracelet.
By Invitation was created by Michael alongside French perfumer Karine Dubreuil-Sereni, who was thrilled to be given the opportunity to create a scent with “no restrictions”.
“Creating Michael’s first fragrance was a unique and exciting experience for me,” she smiled. “I rarely get the freedom to use the finest ingredients to create a prestige fragrance for women, but with Michael, I didn’t have any restrictions. I imagined myself as the woman who would wear the dream perfume of his imagination.
“The result is beautiful and exquisitely reflects the way he would love a woman to smell.”
As well as the eau de parfum, By Invitation will be available as a body lotion and shower gel.
While Michael is hugely successful in the music world, By Invitation marks his debut fragrance.

Michael Buble has been forced to cancel a number of upcoming appearances to undergo vocal surgery.
The 40-year-old singer took to Twitter.com on Wednesday (18May16) to share the news with fans in a post titled, 'A Message from Michael'.
"I wanted to let you know that I am bowing out of some upcoming events due to pending vocal surgery which will require a period of time for me to rest and recover," he wrote. "No talking or singing for a while but my doctors expect a complete recovery."
Michael went on to explain he was "especially sorry" to miss the Canadian Governor General Performance Award Gala on 11 June (16), as he was due to be honoured at the event.
"This award will now be presented at next year's 25th Anniversary on June 29th, 2017," he added.
The star has also pulled out of a Marvin Gaye tribute at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. on 5 June (16).
"Thank you in advance for your prayers and good wishes," he continued. "I'll keep you up to date on my progress."
Michael is the latest in a long list of famous singers who have had to undergo vocal surgery in recent years.
Meghan Trainor underwent the procedure last year (15), and revealed to Most Requested Live she had turned to British singer Sam Smith for advice as he had been through the same thing earlier in the year.
Meanwhile, fellow British powerhouse Adele also had surgery on her vocal cords in 2011.
While she made a full recovery, she told British talk show host Graham Norton she felt like her voice was different now, compared to what it had sounded like before.
"At the very beginning (after the operation) it changed, it was very clean," she said. "Obviously I used to smoke quite a lot, so all the scars that my voice had from most of my life were gone (after the surgery), it was like a brand new voice."
