Michael Buble’s three-year-old son Noah is on the mend after recieveing treatment for liver cancer, his aunt has told an Argentinian journalist.

Morning TV host Tomas Dente said he had revived a messaged from the child’s aunt Daniela Lopilato.

“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’.”Dente continued: “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.’”

UK newspaper, The Sun, however, has said that Lopilato is distancing herself from the reports, as she tweeted “Don’t use my name in the media with information and things that I haven’t said. Noah is doing well and his parents will speak when they want to.”

The comments prompted Buble to issue a statement saying his son “has been progressing well during his treatment”.

He said doctors “are very optimistic about the future for our little boy.”
