The Voice host Carson Daly interviewed the show’s judges Adam Levine, Usher Raymond, Blake Shelton, and Shakira for the Today show this morning, and Usher got personal, saying this past year has been a particularly rough.

“I lost my grandmother, my son was diagnosed as being a Type 1 diabetic. It has definitely been a difficult one for me, man,” he said.

The singer has not revealed which of his two boys is suffering from the blood sugar disease. He is father to six-year-old Usher Raymond V and five-year-old Naviyd, from his marriage to stylist Tameka Foster.

Ursh said he spends a lot of his spare time reading up on his son’s dietary requirements to ensure he is staying healthy, even when he’s on the set of The Voice. 

“Sometimes you’re looking at me and we’re off camera, and I’m online looking at numbers, trying to make sure he’s eating properly. It’s crazy,” he said.

    Praying for him and his family. My little girl was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes January 16 ,2014. The day after her 7th birthday. It is hard but our kids are so brave.
