The actor's 1-year-old son, Luke, has been hospitalized at Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center with an undisclosed "childhood illness," Busey's rep confirmed to E! News Tuesday.
Scary, indeed, but at least the prognosis is positive.
Luke "is expected to be going home by the end of the week," the publicist says. "Gary is very grateful to his fans for their love and support. Gary and Steffanie thank everyone for their prayers and well wishes for Luke."
Luke is Busey's only child with fiancée Steffanie Sampson. His actor son, Jake, and daughter, Alectra, are from previous relationships.
This hasn't been much of a week for Busey. Though it actually happened months ago, the episode of Celebrity Apprentice in which the quirky artist was fired aired on Sunday.
We wish little Luke a very speedy recovery!
