The uncle of Noah Buble has described the youngster's return to Argentina after his treatment for liver cancer as a "blessing from God".

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.

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."

Singer Michael and his actress wife Luisana returned with their children so she can finish scenes on a film she was working on when she had to drop everything and fly to LA to confirm her worst fears Noah had cancer and concentrate on saving his life.

Michael, 41, also cancelled his work commitments, including plans to host the Brit Awards following the diagnosis.

They are expected to remain in the country for around a month before returning to the States so Noah can undergo a series of tests to make sure his recovery is continuing.

Dario Lopilato spoke movingly earlier this month of the roller-coaster emotions that came with the discovery Noah had cancer in an interview with a newspaper in his native Argentina.

The actor, who lives in Buenos Aires, also told how his religion had helped him get through the difficult months and described his nephew's ongoing recovery as a "miracle of God".

His comments followed confirmation from Michael and his wife that their son was "progressing well" during his treatment for his disease in only their second public comment since they were told he had liver cancer.

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."

They confirmed Noah had cancer in a Facebook post last November, admitting: "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."

The locally produced movie Luisana will now finish is called Those Who Love, Hate.

It is set in the 1940s and is an adaption of a crime novel by Argentinian poet and short-fiction writer Silvina Ocampo and her husband Adolfo Bioy Casares.

A homeopath escapes a passionate love affair in the film by running away to a remote coastal area, only to be reunited with the woman he wants to forget - played by Noah's mum - through a quirk of fate.

Susana Gimenez, a famous Argentinean TV journalist who found herself on the same flight back to Buenos Aires as the Buble family, told waiting reporters at the airport: "The best thing that happened to me on my trip was to come across Michael and Luisana and their little son.

"He's cured, healthy and so lovely. He's in great shape."
