Heartbreaking news this morning as celebrity chef Jean-Christophe Novelli has revealed his newborn son, Valentino, is battling cancer.
Jean-Christophe and his fianceé Michelle released a statement last night to confirm that their eight-week-old son is suffering from Neuroblastoma.
According to Hello magazine, Valentino was rushed to hospital after his parents found a lump on his neck.
A spokesperson for the famous chef said: "Jean-Christophe's priority at this time is supporting his family as they deal with this devastating news, it is still very early days but they remain positive and believe the NHS experts are doing everything possible.
"Jean has had to postpone all his immediate work over the next two weeks to be with his baby and support his family but is grateful for the understanding and support during this very difficult time."
Jean recently opened up in an interview after his son was born and said: "I have always wanted three sons and this is the perfect hat-trick. All the ingredients are here for a lovely recipe. It's wonderful to have children.”
This comes just a few hours after singer Michael Buble confirmed his three-year-old son is also battling cancer.
