Michael Buble will be a strict dad.

The 'Haven't Met You Yet' hitmaker - who is expecting his first child with wife Luisana Lopilato - predicts that he will be an authoritative parent, reasoning that his parents being ''soft'' made him a ''harder'' person.

He explained to OK! Magazine: ''I didn't have a strict upbringing and I wish I did sometimes. I think my mum and dad loved me too much. I wasn't spoilt, but my father's mother and father were quite tough and m father grew up to be a very compassionate, soft-spoken gentleman. My parents were very soft and loving with me and I turned out to be a little bit harder. I wish I was more like my father, but I'm not.''

The 37-year-old singer admits that he can have a bad temper and often got into fights as a child.

He added: ''I have moments where I think, 'God, my father is the sweetest, most gentle soul and I'm really not.' I'm a kind person, they've taught me unconditional love and empathy, but I have a very strong temper that early on in my life led to bouts of violence.''
