Beyond heartbreaking. Criss Angel shared photos of his son, Johnny, who was just diagnosed with leukemia, on Monday, Oct. 26.

The illusionist, 47, shared a gut-wrenching pic of Johnny, 2, wearing Mickey Mouse pajamas, and himself alongside the boy’s mother, Angel’s girlfriend Shaunyl Benson, in the little boy’s bed. “4th day chemo,” Angel tweeted. “Shaunyl, Johnny and I can’t thank you enough for the overwhelming outpouring of love, prayers and support. #Amazing”

Angel canceled his Believe magic shows at the Luxor in Las Vegas through Nov. 1 to fly back to Australia so that he could be with Johnny, the Las Vegas Sun first reported.

The magician followed up his first tweet with two more, including a photo of him holding his little boy. This also marked the first time Angel had confirmed he was a father.
