In Bublé At The BBC, the singer told host Claudia Winkleman he 'just didn't know that level of love existed'.
He said of his sons: 'I just love them so much that part of loving them so much is not giving them everything they want and that is a tough thing for me.'
When asked about returning to work, he said it was 'really tough', and that Noah did not want him to leave.

1 IN 500 CHILDREN WILL SUFFER FROM CANCER 

Childhood cancer is rare and it is believed that just one in every 500 youngsters will develop a form of the disease by the time they turn 14. Boys are slightly more at risk than girls.
The most common form is leukaemia, which accounts for almost one third of child sufferers. 
While brain and spinal cord tumours are the next most common – believed to be responsible for a quarter of infancy cases.
Some types – including embryonal tumours, such as neuroblastoma, retinoblastoma and Wilms tumour and acute lymphoblastic leukaemia – occur most commonly in under-fives.
It is the most common cause of death in children in the UK and the US, responsible for nearly one fifth – with brain tumours being the most deadly.
The past few decades have seen dramatic improvements in the outlook for children diagnosed with cancer.
Fifty years ago, three quarters of children diagnosed with cancer died; today more than three quarters survive.
The average five year survival rate, across all childhood cancer types, is 82 per cent.
Children often undergo surgery to remove their tumour or receive chemotherapy to kill off their cancerous cells.
Radiotherapy is also commonly used if the cancer is in just one area of the body, while a new type of treatment known as immunotherapy is beginning to be used by allowing the child’s own immune system to attack the tumour. 
He said: 'My son Noah is three, Eli eight months, and Noah said to me "Poppy, for what are you going?" I said "Well, daddy is going to go and sing".
'And it kills you, he said "Please don't go, I will be a good boy", and I think I'm the worst human being in the universe.'
The singer and his wife said they are both putting their careers on hold while their son receives treatment for his cancer. 
Earlier, Bublé's wife Luisana filmed young Noah singing.  
The 41-year-old Canadian singer recently released an album, Nobody But Me,  
Michael has previously described fatherhood as the best thing that has ever happened to him.
He said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight in October: 'I love them more than I'll ever love anything, or anyone in the whole universe. 
'I think it gave me perspective on life that I think I very badly needed. It's hard to be able to quantify that level of love.
‘I didn't know that level of love existed. But it makes me better at everything. It allows me to pull more emotion and be more honest and to be in the moment.
‘The only regret that I have in my life is that I took this long to have kids, because I had no idea the perspective it would give me. I had no idea how much I would love being a dad.
‘That's it, that's all I care about ... I love them too much probably, if there was such a thing. 
'It's made everything else so insignificant, moments that I was afraid of and moments that would overwhelm me have now become a joy because I see how not serious they are compared to what is really important, which is Noah and Eli and that's it.’  
Bublé, 41, has sold more than 40 million albums worldwide with his smooth covers of jazz standards and original songs.
He married Lopilato, 29, in 2011. 
One fan posted a video on Facebook of the performer singing on stage with Noah in December 2015.  
Actress Luisana told Page Six earlier this year that the doting parents love nothing more than spending all their time with their boys.
'We are a little weird about our kids. We love to be with our kids a lot. When we are out for one hour, we miss them.'

Bublé is due to perform at the BBC Music Awards in London's ExCel conference centre on December 12. 
He is also due to host the Juno awards in Ottawa on April 2, 2017 and was expected to go on tour next year and do a Christmas special in Hollywood for NBC, according to www.cba.ca
'Our thoughts and prayers are with Michael and his family during this difficult time. We are respecting his request for privacy, as such we cannot comment on his participation in the 2017 Juno Awards at this time,' said a spokesperson for the Junos.
In June 2015, Noah sustained 'serious burns' after an accident involving scalding water.

Touching moment Bublé brought his son on stage for duet

Michael Bublé's love for his eldest son Noah was shown in the adorable moment he brought the little boy on stage at a show. 
The Canadian singer brought the then 2-year-old onto the stage during a special New Year's Eve show in New York.

At the end of a song, the popular singer quietens the cheering crowd.
'I promised someone here I would do a bit of a duet with them and I don't know if they will do it with me', he says. 
'I promised him, I said: 'Dude if you have your nap, I'll let you sing.' 
The audience quickly realized he was referring to his son and started chanting, 'Noah, Noah', 'We love Noah' in support.
The next moment the boy is handed to the star from the side of the stage.
Bublé sings: 'Now I don't want anybody loving my baby, nobody, nobody, nobody but...'
And the boy replies: 'Me'. 
The pair carry on singing together before ending their performance with a touching embrace before the little one is carried off stage again.

'Thank you in advance for your prayers and good wishes. I'll keep you up to date on my progress.'  
‘That's it, that's all I care about ... I love them too much probably, if there was such a thing.
