Michael Bublé is having his sixth annual concert this coming December 20 specially dedicated to his three-year-old son Noah, who is now battling with liver cancer. Bublé and his wife, Argentinian actress Luisana Lopilato, are also planning out a special room for their son on their new Canadian home.

Bublé and Lopilato have recently announced their temporary departure from all professional activities to give their full attention during Noah's cancer treatments. However, due to public demand, Bublé has decided to continue with his annual holiday concert entitled Michael Bublé Sings and Swings Concert. Apart from this concert, he has dropped all other engagements including hosting and performing at the BBC Music Awards, the Brit Awards, and the Juno Awards in Ottawa.

Bublé and his wife have also decided to bring back their son to Burnaby, Canada, Bublé's hometown, once Noah completes his chemotherapy treatments in the US. The couple has commissioned the building of a new home that will sprawl across 27,000 square feet of land. The house will have separate rooms built for Noah and his younger brother Elias, a heated swimming pool, a tennis court, a big garden, and an ice rink.

The couple hasn't gotten public into the house's details, but they point out that Noah will have a 'special room' for when he needs to recuperate after the chemotherapy sessions.

Bublé and Lopilato's family and friends have been very supportive of the family during this trying time. Noah's aunt, Brandee Bublé, has also recently surprised Noah with his favorite Hatchimal toy. It is said that the Hatchimal, a robotic egg that hatches a surprise creature, is Noah's dream Christmas present but is hard to find.

As Brandee Bublé posts on her Instagram page, "Spent hours looking at every possible store that sold toys in Vancouver, got on waiting lists, only to find one on Craigslist, an hour away from where we live and twice the price... But we got Noah the Hatchimal that I promised him!"

While Noah is currently undergoing cancer treatments, Bublé and his wife have requested for privacy and everyone's prayers. As the Canadian crooner posted on the couple's behalf on Lopilato's Facebook page, "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."

The Michael Bublé Sings and Swings Concert will be aired on December 20 at 8 PM on NBC. The show will feature holiday tunes and Bublé's songs from his album, Nobody but Me.
