Michael Buble’s three-year-old son Noah’s cancer recovery hailed ‘a blessing from God’ by family.
Noah was diagnosed with cancer last year.
Dario Lopilato confirmed the three-year-old had flown back to Buenos Aires with his doting parents, Michael Buble and Luisana Lopilato , and his baby brother Elias even though he was not pictured with them at the airport on Tuesday.
Crooner Bublé opened the refurbished NIA – now known as the Barclaycard Arena – in 2014.
They touched down just after 6am on an American Airlines flight from Los Angeles, where Noah was diagnosed with cancer last November and started a four-month course of chemotherapy.
Dario, who went to the airport to pick them up, said: “The only thing I can say as their uncle is that I’m over the moon to be playing with my nephews again.
“We are living this moment together.
“Luisana and Michael are going to talk later and I prefer to let them speak.
“But the important thing is that we’re all together here in Argentina.
“What can I say!
“It’s a blessing from God.”
Thanking the public for their support during the last few months, he added: “The support people have shown has been incredible.
“We’ve really appreciated all their prayers.”
Doctors in LA confirmed Michael and his actress wife’s worst fears on November 1 after doing a liver biopsy at a clinic in Buenos Aires.
The couple revealed their son had cancer on the singer’s Facebook page, announcing they were putting their careers on hold to devote all their time and attention “to helping Noah get well.”
Michael and Luisana’s families organised a mass get-together over Christmas so they could spend time with Noah in Los Angeles instead of the Canadian singer’s mansion in Vancouver where they normally meet up for the festive season.
Last month an Argentinian journalist went on TV to say Dario’s other sister Daniela had told him in a text message, “The cancer has gone” after chemotherapy and an op to remove Noah’s tumour, sparking his parents’ second-only statement.
The couple said: “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.
“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.
“We’d like to thank the thousands of people that have sent their prayers and good wishes to us. As we continue this journey, we are greatly comforted by your support and love.”
