AS THE wife of the world’s hottest swing crooner, Mrs Michael Buble is the envy of thousands of women everywhere.

But she and Michael were dealt a terrible blow after their son Noah was diagnosed with cancer. Here’s the low-down on his mum…

Argentinian model Luisana Lopilato has been married to Michael Buble since 2011

Who is Luisana Lopilato, how old is she and what is her background?

The blonde beauty was born in 1987 in Buenos Aires, the capital city of Argentina, where she was raised with her brother Dario and sister Daniela.

She became a child actress at the age of eight when she starred in the TV series Mi familia es un dibujo, which translates into English as “my family is a drawing” before she was cast, at the age of 12, in Chiquititas, or Tiny Angels, a popular children’s musical TV show in Argentina.

This show also launched her singing career and she went on to record four soundtrack albums for the show as well as starring in a spin-off film of the programme.

Luisana, who’s now 30, has mostly worked on screen in Argentina but appeared in an Italian miniseries and this year starred in a Hollywood film called Fair Market Value.

When did Luisana Lopilato start modelling?

Luisana dabbled in modelling as a child but only started properly at the age of 19 when she became the face of the underwear brand Promesse and then went on to become the face of Ultimo.

She has represented brands including Coca Cola, McDonald’s, Gillette and Argentinian fashion company 47 Street.

Lopilato’s stunning appearance has also attracted her over two million followers on Instagram.

How did she meet Michael Buble?

Luisana appeared in Michael’s Haven’t Met You Yet music video and the pair instantly hit it off.

Later that year, they married in Argentina, before having a full ceremony in April.

In March 2013, the happy couple welcomed their first child, a son called Noah.

On January 22nd this year, she gave birth to their second child, another son who they named Elias.

How is her son Noah doing?

Michael and Luisana have had a tough year as their eldest son Noah is struggling with cancer.

The three-year-old has bravely undertaken chemotherapy in his fight against the deadly disease.

Back in November 2016, Michael and his Argentinian wife Luisana Lopilato, said they were putting their careers on hold after confirming Noah’s liver cancer diagnosis.

Thankfully, it now seems that little Noah is making positive progress after his uncle revealed that he was ‘doing very well’ after treatment.

Michael and Luisana seemed to confirm their son’s progress with an upbeat Facebook update.

In February, Michael reduced fans to tears with his music comeback, sharing a video for his single I Believe In You.

In April 2017, Luisana broke her silence on the matter, appearing at a press conference where she spoke for the first time to say: “Thank God, my son is well”.

And in July Luisana furthered opened up about Noah’s illness saying that thankfully “the worst is over.”

Ambitious Kendall Jenner is the highest-earning model on the planet — and learnt it all from her famously pushy mum Kris Jenner

MODELLING used to be a profession for which you needed God-given beauty and to be “discovered” by a well-connected scout.

MODELLING used to be a profession for which you needed God-given beauty and to be “discovered” by a well-connected scout.

Not any more, as the rise of Kendall Jenner to the position of world’s top model shows.

Kendall Jenner earned £17million last year

Forbes magazine announced this week that Kendall, 22, is the highest-earning model on the planet, knocking Gisele Bundchen, 37, off the top spot for the first time in 15 years.

Kendall, half sister of Kim Kardashian, made £17million last year. Not bad for a girl who, as early episodes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians will attest, certainly wasn’t born with supermodel looks.

While pretty, Kendall did not have the otherworldly beauty or natural star quality possessed, for example, by a young Kate Moss.

But what she lacked in raw potential, Kendall made up for with ambition in bucketloads.

In a letter she wrote to herself, aged 14, which she read out recently on America’s Tonight Show, she said: “My goal in life is to become a big-time model and travel to really amazing places. And I’m really excited to read this in the future.”

All the Kardashian-Jenner sisters know that ambition can get you just about anywhere.

It is a lesson they learned from their famously pushy mother, Kris.

Even Kendall’s part in the much-derided Pepsi ad of April 2017, which saw her bringing a protest to a halt with a can of the fizzy drink, left her unscathed.

She claimed to be ignorant of the multi-million pound ad’s tone-deaf message, sobbing afterwards: “I would never purposely hurt someone, ever. If I knew this was gonna be the outcome, I would have never done something like this.”

Amid reports that Kris was furious with the soft drinks giant, Pepsi put out a statement apologising for “putting Kendall Jenner in this position”.

Neither Kendall nor Kris were about to let the Pepsi ad ruin her career, especially as, according to Kendall, it had been so hard won.

She insists: “People think that this (success) just came to me. But it didn’t. What I have has almost worked against me.”

Her family name did not seem to count against her when she made her catwalk debut aged 18 in the Marc Jacobs show, the most coveted gig of New York Fashion Week.

It was quite the coup for a newbie, not least because Katie Grand, the superstylist who cast the 2014 show, admitted she was “underwhelmed” by Kendall on their first meeting.

Nevertheless, thanks to some pressure from Kendall’s agent, Grand gave Kendall a second chance and was impressed by her “super-ambitious and super-professional” attitude.

Kendall’s appearance at the show, wearing a nipple-baring sheer top, caused a storm. She found herself booked for top designers including Chanel, Giles Deacon and Karl Lagerfeld.

She also had major success as part of French designer Olivier Rousteing’s “Balmain army”. Rousteing happens to be a close friend of Kendall’s sister Kim and her husband Kanye West.

Kendall’s meteoric rise caused some resentment among other models and Kendall was allegedly bullied by jealous rivals who would put cigarettes in her drinks — although she has denied this.

Whether or not her name and connections got Kendall a leg up into the fashion industry, one thing is for sure — she has a social media reach that many of her counterparts can’t hope to match.

On Instagram she has 85million followers, compared to Gisele, who has 13.5million, and a photo of her lying on the floor with her hair in heart formations is one of the most “liked” posts of all time.

Brands understand how powerful that is. On the day she was signed as the face of Estee Lauder in 2014, the company received six times more visitors to their website, 90 per cent of whom were first timers.

And what of that not-so-God-given beauty?

Kendall has always denied having any cosmetic enhancement, but her nose appears slimmer, her lips plumper and her cheeks fuller than in her early years — although this could just be clever make-up.

Natural or not, it is a face you better get used to, because we will all be seeing plenty more of Kendall Jenner.

Top 10 highest-paid models

Kendall Jenner £17million; Gisele Bundchen £13.2million
Chrissy Teigen £10.1million; Adriana Lima £7.9million
Gigi Hadid £7.1million; Rosie Huntington-Whiteley £7.1million
Karlie Kloss £6.8million; Liu Wen £4.9million
Bella Hadid £4.5million; Ashley Graham £4.1million

PAUL Hollywood’s neighbours have branded him “rude and arrogant” after he infuriated locals in his posh village in Kent.

According to The Daily Star the Bake Off presenterwho announced he was divorcing wife Alex this week, hasn’t been seen at his £1.4million farmhouse in over a month, and it appears to be a case of “good riddance.”

A source revealed that Paul’s close neighbour can’t stand him, disclosing: “He’s not viewed well in the area.

“A lot of people say he’s quite obnoxious. She doesn’t like him. She says he’s arrogant.”

They added: “His wife’s lovely. He’s very noisy, sometimes revving his cars loudly.

“No-one has got a great opinion of him.”

However a spokesman for Paul said: “These allegations are simply untrue.”

Neighbours will be relieved to know that the baker has fled to the mountains in the wake of his divorce news.

He decided to take himself as far away as possible for a break in the wilderness after a tough week.

Taking to Instagram, Paul posted a picture of stunning snow topped mountains and wrote: “Awesome view”.

However, he quickly deleted the snap perhaps out of fear that someone would discover the location of the mystery mountains.

Paul could have spent his hike contemplating his financial situation as he could be set to lose £5million in his divorce.

Paul, who has a son aged 16 with Alex, is now thought to be holed up nearby in the same rented pad he escaped to after confessing to his affair with US Bake Off co-presenter Marcela Valladolid.

A source revealed: “In the last few months, Alex had completely given up on their relationship.

“The trust was totally gone. She just didn’t want to make it work anymore. She feels fame has changed him.

He’s not the same man she fell for all those years ago.

“He used to joke about just being a simple baker when he first became well-known, but these days that couldn’t be further from the truth.

“He’s a huge star, and he knows it. He’s had all the success he could ever have dreamed of, but she fears it has gone to his head.”

PREGNANT Love Island star Cara De La Hoyde has fought back against cruel trolls who have mocked a naked magazine shoot of her bump.

The star looked radiant as she posted the snap online, revealing her almost full turn bump completely nude.

Alongside the picture, the stunning star has revealed that she has learned to love and embrace her body’s changes during her pregnancy, and has encouraged others to do the same.

Writing next to the snap, which was taken for Closer magazine, she wrote: “This week I have seen so much negativity towards us girls and how we look at our bodies , which is never helped by these keyboard trolls.

“So I want to embrace my body right now 👌🏽 I’m the biggest iv ever been and I ❤ it!”

Revealing how pregnancy has effected her body as her baby continues to grow, Cara wrote: “Iv got more stretch marks cellulite and lumps where they weren’t before, but I’m the happiest iv ever been 🙌 Women are beautiful no matter the size shape or colour [sic].”

“Imperfections are what make us, us! So [middle finger to] the haters & trolls, start to ❤ you for you 👏 remember you are unique 😍

However, rather than celebrate her positive messages, her followers criticised her for choosing to post an airbrushed version of her bump pic.

Not one to be taken down, the star – who is due any day now – hit back, and added: “for all you negative Nora’s commenting, I just wanted to promote some happiness, but you can see the unedited photo on my insta story right now)”

In the story, Cara showed the unaired picture in all its glory – and even circled her new stretch marks and bump marks in order to shut the trolls up for good.

Ahead of the baby’s birth, Cara has rekindled her romance with her Love Island boyfriend and baby daddy Nathan Massey.

After seven months apart, The Sun Online confirmed they’re back together after reconciling.

A close friend of Cara’s told us: “Cara and Nathan are very happy at the moment, I think the baby has bought them closer together and I’ve never seen Cara so happy.

Cara is reportedly planning on filming the birth of her baby

“They’ve been out on romantic dates and they’ve been spending the a night together every couple of weeks.”

The insider added: “Cara and Nathan are not living together but it’s been rumoured that this is the next natural step for them both. They’re going to make the perfect family.”
