Bublé wants big brood

Michael Bublé now realises he wants a huge family.

The musician and his wife Luisana Lopilato welcomed their son Noah into the world in August. Although the tot’s birth wasn’t quite what Michael was expecting, he is in no doubt that a large family is on the cards for him and Luisana.

“I’ve said this and I got in trouble for it but it really wasn’t what I thought it would be. Everyone told me it would be this life-changing, massive [thing] but it was very surreal. Until you do it you don’t know,” he told UK TV show Daybreak. “And now I know and now I know that we’d love to have three or four more.”

Michael is currently on his To Be Loved Tour, with dates continuing across the globe until July next year. Although he finds being away from his family tough, they make sure they are in regular contact.

“Modern technology is a wonder. Skype, Facetime, stuff like that keeps us connected. [My] bus has really good internet. I get to go to sleep and just look at him and at least it makes me feel that I am connected in some way,” he explained.

The 38-year-old star misses being at home when he is playing shows, but when he is in his home city of Vancouver he often wishes he was performing on stage.

He is proud of his strong relationship with his wife, but doesn’t take it for granted. He insists any marriage is tough, but he thinks they are strong enough to last the distance.

The singer is less positive about his career however, admitting he often worries he is no longer relevant.

“You go up and down and, you know, I feel that my career in some ways is on a down. Record sales… the record business is not great. People aren’t selling the same amount of records, the economy is tough,” he revealed. “Security wise, I can be very secure or very insecure, depending on which week you talk to me. I can feel like I’m very up down. I can feel like I’m very popular and am trending upwards one week and the next I can feel like I’m holding on and scrapping to stay relevant.”
