three. Luisana told Ar­gen­tinian mag­a­zine Gente: “Now when I talk to my fam­ily I always tell them, ‘Don’t get bogged down with fights or stress. Don’t for­get what we’ve got.’ Noth­ing is that im­por­tant.

“I’m not say­ing that noth­ing both­ers me, just that there’s an enor­mous sign in my head that says ‘fam­ily’.

“I un­der­stood I shouldn’t put up with some­thing that makes me un­com­fort­able or suffer or I dis­like. I ask: ‘Does this make me happy?’ and if it doesn’t I push it aside.”

Luisana, who was a TV ac­tress in her home coun­try of Ar­gentina, said the cou­ple’s Chris­tian faith had helped them cope with Noah’s strug­gle, and that strangers often told her that they had prayed for her son.

Michael, 43, said ear­lier this year that his fam­ily always came be­fore his ca­reer.

The singer, who can­celled a world tour af­ter Noah’s cancer di­ag­no­sis, said: “I don’t even think about my ca­reer. It is zero on the scale of things to care about.”

Luisana Lopi­lato, 32, re­vealed be­fore Noah’s ill­ness she could let an ar­gu­ment fes­ter for sev­eral days – but his cancer fight had now made her put fam­ily first.

She said: “When I was younger and got an­noyed about some­thing, I could go two or three days without speaking to him or an­swer­ing the phone. He would go to bed be­side me and I’d be like a freezer.

“I’m mel­low­ing with age and now I don’t turn in for the night still in a bad mood.

“We learnt to es­tab­lish pri­or­i­ties in life and they changed com­pletely.

“I don’t worry now about silly things, about ma­li­cious com­ments or con­flicts.”

Michael and Luisana were told their el­dest son, now five, had liver cancer in Novem­ber 2016 by a Los Angeles hos­pi­tal af­ter medics in Ar­gentina said they thought he had mumps.

He is now in re­mis­sion and in July last year they ex­panded their fam­ily with the birth of Vida, sis­ter to Noah and sec­ond son Elias,
