Iconic singer Michael Buble has started to hint to fans that he may be quitting music soon to pursue being a full-time father.

The singer, 46, has sold over 75 million records worldwide and says he is “not loving” his career as much as he should and wants to spend more time with his wife Luisana Lopilato, 35, and children Noah, Elias, Vida and Cielo, his youngest who was born last month.

Speaking on That Gaby Roslin Podcast, he said: “I think i’m not loving it as much, I think i’m getting close to thinking maybe I can just go and bed a dad.

“I have this picture in my head, of just me in a field with my kids and Ed Sheeran’s kids and we’re just hugging each other and picnicking and getting drunk.”

Bublé is currently preparing to head on another world tour late September. He said he often has to remind himself how lucky he is if he is not “feeling” his work.

He added that the idea of becoming a full-time dad was a “fantasy”, with few people “brave” enough to make the choice.

Bublé said: “I don’t know a friend who doesn’t have the same thought, I mean we never do it. We never seem to really do it, very few of us are brave enough to say, ‘No, I just want to do this’, but I think it’s a fantasy.”

He has previously taken two years off when his eldest son Noah was diagnosed with liver cancer in 2016, before the boy made a full recovery.

In the past he has claimed he would have been more successful if he had not started a family, and thinks about what could have been “all the time”.
