Michael Buble cuts down touring for fatherhood

Canadian crooner Michael Buble has risked the wrath of his record label executives by cutting down his touring schedule as he prepares to become a father.

The singer is expecting his first child with his model wife Luisana Lopilato later this year, and he has changed the promotional schedule around his new album, "To Be Loved," to make sure he can spend more time at home.

He tells Britain's Sunday Express newspaper, "I have made a great record and a big record, but the things that I care about have definitely changed. I have pared down my tour schedule which is hell for my promoters and my management who are watching millions of dollars slip out of the window, but that's how it has got to be. I have to be happy in my personal life otherwise I am not going to be happy in my professional life."

"To Be Loved" is due for release in April.

I saw Michael in concert on 6/7/11 & it was the best.  He is truly a great entertainer.  But, family has always got to be first.  I give him all the credit in the world for his decision.  It only makes me love him more.  Way to go Michael.....

I saw Michael in 2006 in Baton rouge. It was a great concert. Michael has made so much money for his record company he has nothing to be apologetic about. It's time for them to back off and he is definitely right to be calling the shots. He is a truly 'nice guy' and that new baby will need him at home.

Good for him.  No one cares about all that money at the end of your life.  Your family is what is important.  Bet the wig wigs at the record label are having a fit.
