As the saying goes, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, and that certainly seems to be the case when it comes to Michael Bublé’s eldest son, Noah.
The childhood cancer-survivor is somewhat of a piano-playing prodigy, if a video his proud dad posted yesterday to his Instagram account is anything to go by.
And it seems even his dad couldn’t help but be overcome by emotion as he sang along to his hit, I’ll Never Not Love You. (Watch above).

Canadian-born crooner Bublé has kept his children mostly out of the spotlight but it seems he was bursting with pride over his eight-year-old son’s accomplishment and couldn’t wait to share it with the world.
The video starts with young Noah sitting at a piano. As he plays the first notes of the hit song, Bublé points at his son from him and gestures to someone off camera, already blown away by his son’s playing from him.
Written across the scene is, “Noah surprised me after I was away on tour. He worked so hard to learn this song. So proud of my guy.”
Bublé begins to sing before turning to his son and uttering “Dude!”. He then continues to sing but is clearly getting overcome with emotion. Across the screen is written “I’m getting choked up,” as his voice breaks and he grabs at his chest, before placing a hand on his son’s shoulder.

As he reaches the chorus, the camera zooms in on Noah, who is playing like a seasoned pro as his famous dad keeps the beat by tapping his leg before the video ends.
Bublé uploaded the video with the comment, “More talent in his little fingers than I have in my whole body!!” and the hashtags, #proud, #illnevernotloveyou and #chickenlegs, a reference to his own skinny legs.
Commenters were quick to praise the performance. “My baby!” wrote Noah’s proud mum Luisana Lopilato, while musical genius David Foster gave a glowing review, “That is soooo great!!”
Foster’s wife Katharine simply wrote “Woowwwwwwww” while dancer/singer/choreographer Derek Hough also praised the performance, writing, “Bro!!!! I love this so much.”
Bublé and his Argentine-born model and actress wife are parents to Noah, Elias, 6, and Vida, 4, and announced earlier this year they were expecting a fourth child.
Bublé said at the time they felt blessed and grateful to be welcoming another baby.
He also touched on the previous battles the family faced following son Noah’s cancer diagnosis.
Noah, then three, became ill in November 2016 while in his mother’s native Buenos Aires. Doctors initially thought he had mumps, but after finding “something in her stomach de ella” and unable to reach her husband, who was on tour, she flew back to the US to seek further medical attention.
He was eventually diagnosed with liver cancer and Bublé canceled the rest of his tour to be by his son’s side while he underwent treatment. He is now in remission.
He told Nine’s TODAY show in 2018 it was the “worst possible thing” you could go through as a parent and said through tears there were times he and his wife didn’t want to wake up and face reality.
In an emotional instagram-post to mark his son’s eighth birthday last August, Bublé wrote, “Today my hero turns eight! I’ve never met anyone as brave…”
Bublé said his new album, higher, which features the song, I’ll Never Not Love You, is a “celebration of life.”
“You know, we’ve been through a lot as a family and I think it gave me a great deal of perspective and in that perspective I realized how lucky I am,” he said. “This is a real celebration of life, it really is.
“And the songs that I wrote were inspired by my family, by my wife and kids. If I can’t be inspired by that beautiful family that I have, I don’t know what would ever inspire me. I’m a lucky man.”
The family even used a music video for I’ll Never Not Love You to reveal they were expecting again. His children and wife appeared at the end of the video, with her baby bump on display.
