Buble: I used to be a ladies man

Michael Buble admits he has broken a few hearts in his time

Michael Buble has said he was a heartbreaker in his younger days.

The Canadian crooner, who is now expecting his first child with model wife Luisana, admitted that he's not a "bad boy", but he may have broken some hearts when he was in his 20s.

"I'm just like every other guy. I'm not going to say I was some bad boy - I was never macho in that way - but I think I was quite reckless with hearts in the past. I did the 'love 'em and leave 'em' thing," he told US Cosmopolitan.

But the 37-year-old - who was previously engaged to Emily Blunt and childhood sweetheart Debbie Timuss - admitted that he got his comeback.

"I put out that karma, and one day, I got it all handed back. I got my heart broken when I was 29 or 30, and it served as a wake-up call," he recalled.

"It gave me a chance to go to therapy and admit things to myself and stop glossing over them. The truth is, I didn't really like myself or respect myself that much for a while, but I learned to accept that we can't change the past nor predict the future, so we need to live in the moment."

Michael, who has released his eighth album To Be Loved, also revealed he likes strong women.

"I'm attracted to strong women. I surround myself with them," he said.

"I'm the opposite of the guy who's insecure around them - they make me feel more secure, like my wife. Her job fulfils her and is important to her. And everywhere we go, people like her more than they like me. I love it."
