Michael Bublé is ready to sing lullabies.

The Canadian crooner who wed Argentine actress Luisana Loreley Lopilato de la Torre in March – and celebrated again in May, wants to start a family as soon as his wife is on board.

“I’ve said to [Luisana] a million times I’d love to have kids,” Bublé, 36, tells ET Canada.

“But I always say to her when you’re ready – when you feel like you’ve lived and you’ve partied and done all the things you want to do. When you’ve worked your butt off, then tell me.”

While Bublé is happy to wait until his 24-year-old bride is ready, he can’t help envy his other friends who have children.

Says the singer: “All my friends have babies so every time one of them says, ‘Guess what, you’re going to be an uncle,’ part of me is so happy for them and the other part of me is jealous.”

Wow, what a name!!! She is very pretty and I love that dress! They will make some gorgeous babies when the time is right.

It’s really refreshing to hear a husband tell his wife that he’s willing to wait when she’s ready! His baby clock is ticking but he’s being so respectful of not only her body but her age. I know that 24 isn’t too young to have a baby but it’s awesome that at 36 he knows she might have some more life to live and things to experience before she to commits to motherhood. What a sweet man. Go Michael!!!!!!!

She’s only 24-no reason to rush.

Well, what do you expect when you marry a 24 year old? Of course she’s going to want to enjoy the married life, esp when there is alot of money to have fun with. Partying? Not sure what that means though.

Man what a gentleman. I wish my husband were like that. I’m only 22 and he wanted me to go off bc. So anytime now I could get pregnant. I wish this were on my terms…

@Wish-If you’re truly not ready, then I’m sorry you have this conflict. It’s not easy to rock the boat in a marriage, so I hope you both can come to a resolution that suits you both.

Kids are a permanent fixture in your life, so having them should be on your terms as well. Good luck with everything and I hope it all works out. 🙂

That’s a good husband! Love Michael’s music and he seems like a nice guy. I think it’s great that he is thinking about his wife and actually cares about her feelings regarding this, after all she is the one that will get pregnant, go through all these changes. She is young ,they have plenty of time to have babies. Some men automatically assume that once a woman gets married she wants to start having kids, that is not always the case especially when you get married younger. Some women need time to do things on their own before becoming mothers and there is nothing wrong with that.

@Wish… Your are married to a man who forced you off birth control? I’d say you’ve got bigger problems than just getting pregnant.
