We're SO happy for Criss Angel and his baby boy!

In an exclusive interview with Us Weekly, Criss made the AMAZING revelation that his son Johnny Sarantako's cancer is in remission. The two-year-old was first diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia last October.

Speaking on Johnny's fantastic recovery, Mr. Angel gushed:

"Johnny is technically in remission, thank God. I believe he will be healed."

What a relief for C.A. and the little boy's mom ​Shaunyl Benson. We know this has been an especially trying time for the pair.

Despite the great leaps the toddler has made, he's not out of the woods quite yet. The precious child still has to undergo grueling blood transfusions and chemo treatments in Australia where he lives with Shaunyl full-time.

According to the magician, doctors advise patients to continue battling the disease post-remission in an effort to eradicate it entirely:

"What doctors found is you have to continue treatment to kill all the cells, as there is no guarantee."

Sheesh. What an intense journey — we just hope Johnny's treatments work and that he grows up to be a healthy young man.

The silver lining in this story is that even though Angel and Benson are no longer together romantically, they've put their differences aside for their gorgeous son. Check out an adorable family photo of the trio (below)!

Woot! It's so wonderful to see modern families coming together in times of difficulty.

For those interested in helping Criss and his son, you can attend the September 12 benefit show and auction Heal Every Life Possible. The event hopes to raise $1 million dollars for pediatric cancer research. The show will feature performances AND appearances by the 48-year-old himself, Cirque Du Soleil, Blue Man Group, Wayne Newton, Jerry Lewis and MORE.

Stay strong, Johnny!
