Singer Michael Buble says being a father gave more purpose to his life.
The 41-year-old singer, who has two children with wife Luisana Lopilato, believes his kids have given him strength following his vocal cords operation earlier this year, reported Femalefirst.
"Being a dad gave me something that I couldn't have got anywhere else and it gave me context. So I thought, at the worst, at least I had a great run and I've loved what I do..
"For the first time in my life, I decided I would take great control by producing my record," he said.
Buble said being with his kids have made him realized that
his work is just a job and does not "define" him.
"I think being a dad gives you perspective. I think really being a parent is a massive blessing.
"It's allowed me to understand deeply that what I do for a living - creating music and art and getting to be a part of a fragrance or a movie - is my job. It isn't what defines me. What defines me is I'm Noah and Eli's dad," he said.
