Michael Bublé and his wife, actress Luisana Lopilato, have confirmed that their son Noah is “progressing well” during his treatment for liver cancer.
“We are so grateful to report that our son Noah has been progressing well during his treatment and the doctors are very optimistic about the future for our little boy,” Michael’s statement reads.
“He has been brave throughout and we continue to be inspired by his courage. We thank God for the strength he has given all of us. Our gratitude to his doctors and caretakers cannot be put into words.”
Argentinian journalist Tomas Dente told TV show Nosotros a la mañana this week that Noah’s aunt, nutritionist Daniela Lopilato, had told him: “The cancer has gone.”
Tomas also read out a message he said Lopilato had sent him after he contacted her for a comment on reports Noah was recovering from treatment for liver cancer.
Revealing the singer’s sister-in-law had insisted it was up to Noah’s parents to tell the world how their son was doing, he said: “I’m going to read word for word what Daniela told me because I don’t want to miss out even a comma.
“She tells me, ‘Yes, Noah is recovering and we’re very happy that’s the case. His parents will speak when they want to do so.”
He adds: “There’s a sentence which I think is wonderful and has to do with the information a colleague of mine had received and I insist there’s no official confirmation because Noah’s parents haven’t spoken but in principle the youngster is on the mend.
“The sentence is, ‘The cancer has gone’.
Showbiz portal Teleshow also reported it had been told by sources close to Michael and his Argentinian actress wife Luisana that Noah was “free from cancer”.
Michael and his wife confirmed their son’s diagnosis on the singer’s Facebook page in November after doctors performed a liver biopsy at a clinic in Buenos Aires.
It was previously claimed Noah has a 90 per cent chance of beating his cancer.
