In November, the BBC ran a story on how Buble's family was devastated after their Noah was diagnosed with cancer. The Canadian singer announced his eldest son's illness via his Facebook page, but he did not divulge the type of cancer that hit the little boy.

During that time, Buble said Noah was being treated in the United States for his cancer. He shared that they have taken a break from their careers to focus on Noah's treatment. The singer also asked for prayers as they embark on a "long journey" toward their son's healing.

Recently, Buble's sister-in-law told an Argentine journalist that Noah is already "on the mend." Afterwards, the singer confirmed in a statement that the boy is doing well in his treatment and that the doctors have released a good prognosis, The Sun relays.

"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," said Buble in his statement. "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."

Aside from thanking God for the strength throughout the ordeal, Buble also thanked his son's doctors and caretakers for their efforts. He also acknowledged the support and prayers from their friends and fans.

Argentine Morning TV reporter Tomas Dente said Noah's aunt Daniela Lopilato told him that the boy is recovering and that his parents will talk about the topic whenever they want to. However, the aunt seemed to distance herself from Dente's reported information.

In a post on Twitter, Lopilato said the media must not use her name with information that she did not say. She also confirmed that Noah "is doing well."
