A former star of reality TV show Made in Chelsea has confirmed his two-year-old daughter has died from blood cancer.
Diego Bivero-Volpe’s two-year-old daughter, Aurelia, was born in April 2022.
Bivero-Volpe and his wife Charlotte Carroll had documented their fight to conceive in film, The Topic, which was released in 2021.

In September 2022, the couple told how little Aurelia was diagnosed with with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia (T-Cell) – an aggressive type of cancer affecting white blood cells.
Aurelia underwent immediate intensive treatment, but her parents were told the cancer had spread and it was in her central nervous system.
At the time, the couple’s Go Fund Me page said, “It has in fact relapsed, at a very aggressive and rapid rate and a new course is urgent and necessary.

“We are told the relapse also has greatly reduced chances, putting her in the lowest quarter percentile.”
She was rushed to hospital and given an urgent set of spinal chemotherapies and a bone marrow transplant.
Just four months later, Bivero-Volpe revealed on the Go Fund Me page that his daughter had passed away.
He said, “It is with a heavy heart that I write to inform you of our darling Aurelia’s passing.

“Our little girl went in peace surrounded by loved ones and in the loving embrace of her mother and I.
“In true Aurelia fashion, she left us not with a cry but with a big beautiful smile – frolicking fearlessly onto her next adventure.
“As we support her through to that next journey wherever that may be, her light continues to guide us through ours, shinning bright with her characteristic joy and love.
“Aurelia will always be the warrior Charlotte and I admire the most. Anyone that met her was constantly in awe of her resilience, intelligence, beauty and good cheer even through the toughest of times.”
Her parents plan to donate the money raised from the Go Fund Me campaign to London children’s hospital, Great Ormond Street.
