Michael Bublé is celebrating the holidays with friends and family. He shared his “crazy” Christmas plans during a “Live! with Kelly” appearance recorded prior to his son’s cancer diagnosis.
“This is a really special time of year and traditions are really important,” Bublé said during the interview.
The 41-year-old crooner told Ripa that he and wife Luisana Lopilato have “people come from all over” to celebrate.
“From South Africa, people come from London, Maine, Los Angeles,” Bublé said. “And they come to my house and I have a massive get-together with all of these people that have spent years with me, my best friends. And they come with my whole family from Argentina, my wife’s parents — it’s crazy. It’s like 30 people.”
“Everybody has tambourines. And all the kids have little musical instruments,” he added. “And then the one Jewish guy in the party — Dionne is his name, from South Africa — the one Jewish man at the party knows every Christmas song ever.”
In November, Bublé and Lopilato revealed that their 3-year-old son Noah is battling cancer.
“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,” Bublé said in a statement.
Bublé will reportedly spend this year’s holidays in Los Angeles, where Noah is said to be undergoing treatment. Both sides of the family are expected to make the trip.
