Michael Bublé fell in crazy love when he met Argentine actress Luisana Lopilato in 2008, but although he proposed to her in November 2009, they didn't wed until March 2011. So why did they take so long to tie the knot?

In a new interview with George Stroumboulopoulos, Bublé explained why he waited two years to get hitched to Lopilato.

"I wanted to get married to her 'cause I wanted to be with her for my life. She's my best friend," the 38-year-old crooner said. "But did I want to get married? It's a scary commitment."

Bublé, who had previously dated actress Emily Blunt, said he no longer considered marriage an option once he turned 30 in 2005.

"I just looked at my friends who got married and went, 'Why?'" he said. "Especially friends who got married and didn't have kids. Then I was really stumped. I was, like, 'So what's your reason for being married if you're not going to have kids? Why are you doing it?'"

The B.C. native said he "had to go through a bunch of stuff and get to a point in my life where I was ready." But his problems weren't over there. In 2013, Buble and his wife had their first child, Noah, even though they felt reservations about the whole child-rearing thing.

"I thought I was way too selfish, impatient and I thought I was scared every day, even when she was pregnant, I was like, 'Am I good enough? Am I going to be a good dad? Am I going to be an absentee father?'" Bublé told Stroumbo. "It's a tough conversation. It's something we struggle with daily."
