Catastrophe star Rob Delaney reveals two-year-old son Henry has tragically died of cancer

CATASTROPHE star Rob Delaney has revealed his two-year-old son Henry has died following a battle with cancer.

The American comedian, who now lives in London, broke the devastating news in a Facebook post on Friday where he paid tribute to his “smart, funny and mischievous” child.

In the message, Rob explained Henry was diagnosed with a brain tumour in June 2016, shortly after his first birthday.

His son had surgery to remove the tumour last year but the cancer returned and Henry died in January.

Rob, 41, confessed he, his wife and Henry’s older brothers are “devastated” by the loss.

In the emotional post, Rob wrote: "Henry was a joy. He was smart, funny, and mischievous and we had so many wonderful adventures together, particularly after he'd moved home following fifteen months living in hospitals.

"His tumour and surgery left him with significant physical disabilities, but he quickly learned sign language and developed his own method of getting from A to B shuffling on his beautiful little bum. His drive to live and to love and to connect was profound."

Rob said he was determined not to “go mad with grief”, for the sake of Henry’s siblings.

He continued: "I am astonished by the love-in-action displayed by Henry's mom and his brothers. They are why I will endeavour to not go mad with grief.
