Though Michael Bublé has many songs devoted to love, the Canadian singer admits that since welcoming his 10-month-old son Noah into his life, the word has taken on a new meaning. 

"There's a different height to it," the singer told TODAY's Jenna Bush Hager in an interview that aired Thursday morning. "And I get it now."

In the past year, the 38-year-old singer and his actress wife, Luisana Lopilato, welcomed a baby son, and the crooner kicked off a tour for his newest album, "To Be Loved."

In his own words: 

  • Michael on priorities: "There is no balance," he said. "There is family, and then there's everything else. And that's how it's gotta be." 
  • Michael on baby breaks: "The other day I couldn't help myself," Bublé told TODAY. "I was in the middle of singing and I had to, like, had to go bite him. I had to go give him a kiss and bite him."
  • On his son's favorite song: "Come on, it's 'Rain, rain, go away,'" he said, laughing. "'Come again another day.'" 
  • On what comes next: "My whole family, they inspire me. When this is all done, the people aren't buyin' the records anymore and the autograph hunters don't care, that's all I'm gonna have. You know?"
