Michael Buble's 'struggle' to balance family life and work

Michael Bublé is finding it a "struggle" to balance his work and family life.

The 'It's a Beautiful Day' hitmaker - who has two-year-old Noah and six-month-old Elias with his wife Luisana Lopilato, 29, - has admitted that he is finding it really hard splitting his time between being on tour and spending precious time with his boys.

He said: "I wish it wasn't a struggle, but it is a struggle to find a balance. I'll never find it perfectly, but I will do my damnedest to find it as best I can."

The 40-year-old singer and his actress wife make sure whenever she has to fly out to film a movie he can be at home to be with their children and play the role of "Mr. Mom".

He told People magazine: "I'll fly back, and for three weeks that she's making a movie, I'm the babysitter. I'm Mr. Mom or whatever you call it.

It allows us both to be fulfilled within our professional lives, but at the same time, we feel like we haven't lost control the balance."

Meanwhile, Michael recently had to undergo vocal cord surgery and while he was worried about losing his voice at first, but he often forgets it ever happened.

Asked how is voice is since having the procedure, he said: "You can imagine not knowing and worrying, before. But the moment that I woke up from the surgery, the doctor told me that it wasn't as invasive as he'd first thought and that everything was completely fine and better than expected.

"It's funny because it's now been a couple of months, and I don't even think about it. Sometimes I forget I even had it done; I feel so much stronger than I did then."
