Jean-Christophe Novelli and his partner Michelle Kennedy have revealed that their newborn son has been diagnosed with Neuroblastoma, a rare type of cancer

Jean-Christophe Novelli's newborn son has been diagnosed with cancer.

The 55-year-old celebrity chef welcomed his fourth child, Valentino Louis, into the world with his partner Michelle Kennedy, 40, in September and the couple have revealed that the baby is suffering from Neuroblastoma, a rare type of cancer which mostly affects babies and young children.

Jean-Christophe's spokesperson told HELLO!: "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."

The couple - who have been together for 10 years and engaged for eight - also have sons Jean, eight, and Jacques, four, while the chef has daughter Christina, 30, with his first wife Tina.

Speaking recently about Valentino, Jean-Christophe revealed he missed the birth because he was taking his two other boys to school but Christina was there instead.

He said: "It was Jacques' first day at big school, which was a big deal for him. I was hoping to be there for the birth but Michelle insisted that I took the boys.

"I knew it was the best thing for everybody. As soon as he was born at 9am Christina sent me a text with a picture. I cried.

"It was so magical. 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."
