Michael Bublé ‘Can’t Wait to Meet This Little Guy’

Michael Bublé‘s first child– a boy — is due next week, and the nervous dad-to-be is a little jumpy about it.

“We had a false alarm a couple of days ago and she had about seven hours of labor so we know that it could happen at any time,” he told the Associated Press on Wednesday.

So the singer canceled plans to appear on Today last week and is staying close to home in his native Canada with wife Luisana Lopilato.

“I’m about 15-20 minutes away from home. Just in case anything happens, I’m there,” he tells ET Canada, in an interview airing Monday night.

He says that right now “it’s scary” for his wife, an Argentinian actress. “She’s in a country that’s not her country. People are speaking a language that’s not her first language, so I’m her whole family here, so she’s got a good support system.”

Bublé, 37, admits that it’s hard to focus on anything but the impending arrival.

“The truth is, I don’t know what to expect, because obviously I’ve never expected before, so I’m just really actually enjoying it,” he says. “Neither one of us are anxious, we’re just excited. We can’t wait to know what it’s like, we can’t wait to meet this little guy.”

She’s absolutely beautiful! Their boy will be so handsome. Good luck for a fast and easy delivery. I have 4 more months to go and I’m counting down the days. I can only imagine how exciting it is when you’re only about a week away. I can’t wait to meet my little boy too. 💙

Nobody ever knows what to expect when their first baby arrives. Good luck to both of you with everything!

7 hours of labor and a false alarm???? That sucks! Awww! Poor Luisana! I know this must be hard for her. Having a baby and being away from family and friends in your native country. Michael seems like a sweet and loving husband! I wish them all the best as they bring their precious baby boy into the world! God Bless!

But, what makes him think he can help much after the baby arrives. Most women just want their mom around. Only their mom will understand what it really feels like to become a mom.

I personally would rather have my husband… One thousand percent!! I would prefer to go through all those ‘firsts’ and have help at night from my husband NOT my mother… Depends on who you ask I suppose!

He is gonna be a superb dad. No big ego he’s gonna play ball and hang with his little dude. I love happy stories

Best wishes baby and parents. You will be just fine. Sing dad when the baby cries. Mom just smile and all the love will be generated back into the baby.

Poor Luisana! I wonder why they didn’t just go to Argentina to have the baby if that’s where she feels more comfortable?

Also, I’m guessing he meant seven hours of false labor, not real labor. I’m no expert, but I can’t imagine any doctor in their right mind allowing a woman to labor for seven hours and then just send her home without delivering the baby!

At any rate, I wish them the best of luck!

There is something about this guy that causes me to not give a rat’s a** about him, who he’s mating with, or if they’re having a boy, girl, or werewolf. Michael Buble is boring and so is his personal life. But if this keeps him from producing music for awhile, I’ll be very happy for him.

I kind of love that they’re having the baby in the Lower Mainland rather than in LA! Yay for BC and yay for babies!

As for her rather having her mum around, I’m from Canada, and live in Scotland, and I’ve already told my mum that she’s coming out AFTER our baby is born in January. I want my husband to be the first person who holds her, the first person to walk her through our door and I want to be selfish and have her all to myself (and I guess my husband!) for the first few days.

dee- If he’s so boring, then why are you reading about him?
