Michael Buble Fascinated by Baby Son's Poop

Image Courtesy Michael Buble via InstagramThere was a time when Michael Buble didn’t know if he could handle being married, let alone having kids. But ever since he and his wife Luisana welcomed son Noah last August, he’s become like every other new parent, gushing over everything his child does…and we do mean everything.

Australia’s Channel 7 News reports that at a press conference in Sydney on Thursday, Michael told reporters, “When I walk down the street, I don’t understand why I’m not stopped by every human being so they can meet the most incredible baby that ever was.”

He added, “His poop is fascinating to me … no baby could poop the way my baby can poop. He’s a genius!”

Michael, who kicks off his Australian tour in Perth this weekend, was asked if he had any advice for 17-year-old Lorde, who was recently forced to cancel her Australian tour due to illness. He said that the Grammy-winning “Royals” singer should just enjoy her success.

“The ride is a great ride but getting there is easy compared to staying there,” he added, noting, “It just gets harder to stay relevant.”
