Michael Bublé gives tearful reminder to hug your kids as he leaves family for tour

"I know it’s hard. It sucks and I’m with you."

Canadian singer Michael Bublé showed a more serious, emotional side of himself when he filmed a video in the back of a car leaving home. 

The 47-year-old, who is a dad to four children with his wife Luisana Lopilato, was holding back his tears as he explained that he was heading to the airport to start the next portion of his 'Higher' world tour.

While it's not the first time he's left home to go on tour, this farewell in particular, and leaving his fourth child who's just turned six months old, this goodbye seems to be harder than usual.

As he sat in the car heading to the airport, sporting a black tee and a grey cap, his eyes go glassy as he shares that "it's really tough leaving my wife and kids."

"I have gotten used to being with them every day, 

The singer shared how he had become used to just “being dad” every day and had enjoyed “every second”, but wanted just a bit more time at home, where the family now reside in Argentina. 

"It got me to thinking about all you beautiful people who get up and leave and travel far and just spend long days away from your kids."

"I know it’s hard. It sucks and I’m with you."

“I love doing what I do and I love doing it for you and I’m sure when I get to you you’ll bring me out of my funk. I’m on my way to Lisbon.”

Feeling a little more choked up, he gave some wise advice. “I just want to tell you today, go give your kids a hug and a big kiss. Squeeze ‘em and enjoy every single second because it goes too fast."

“Thank you for being in my life and letting me show my kids that it’s important to be fulfilled in your job too and that that’s okay."

The Canadian star has been very open about the life he has raising his four children, Noah, 9, Elias, 7, Vida, 4, and Cielo, six months, with his actress wife Luisana.

Recently, the singer opened up about how Noah's liver cancer diagnosis at the young age of 3 changed the way he viewed life.

"'For most of my life as an entertainer and, especially on stage, I'd become my alter ego. I'd become the superhero I always wanted to be. Then my wife and I went through this unthinkable thing, and I lost that alter ego.'"

"'That, of course, changed me in a big way – it changed what mattered to me, it changed how I saw life."
