Michael Bublé's son, Noah, reportedly has liver cancer and has started chemotherapy.
The family had already announced that the three-year-old was suffering from cancer, but these new reports have identified that it is of the liver and he has already started chemotherapy.
The Sun reported that Noah was diagnosed on November 1 after undergoing a liver biopsy. Bublé and his wife, Luisana Lopilato, have remained silent after initially publishing a statement confirming Noah's cancer.
She said: "If God wanted it to be discovered that way, it's because he wants to save Noah. Cancer is a horrible illness but we have faith in Noah being able to overcome this.
"We know he will. The time to start a long and very difficult treatment has come but it's got to be done. They say children are normally strong to put up with chemotherapy and my nephew is a warrior."
Bublé and his wife's statement was released five days ago. It read: "We are devastated about the recent cancer diagnosis of our oldest son, Noah, who is currently undergoing treatment in the US. We have always been very vocal about the importance of family and the love we have for our children.
"Luisana and I have put our careers on hold in order to devote all our time and attention to helping Noah get well. At this difficult time, we ask only for your prayers and respect for our privacy. We have a long journey in front of us and hope that with the support of family, friends and fans around the world, we will win this battle, God willing."
Hopefully, Noah will be okay.
While the news is obviously very sad, all hope is not lost. According to Macmillan, 82 percent of children with cancer survive thanks to new treatment methods and quicker diagnosis.
If you have further questions or worries about how cancer can affect children, the Macmillan page has plenty of useful resources, which can be found here.
