Tom Parker’s wife Kelsey was extraordinary as she appeared on Loose Women today, revealing how she manages to keep positive following his inoperable brain tumour diagnosis.
The Wanted singer confirmed he’s battling stage four glioblastoma, an aggressive tumour, earlier this year, weeks before welcoming his second child with Kelsey last month.
However, despite what is an unthinkably tough time for the couple, Kelsey’s smile didn’t drop for a second as she spoke to panelists Stacey Solomon, Jane Moore, Linda Robson and Tyson Fury’s wife, Paris.
The mum-of-two explained she’s getting through Tom battle by remaining positive.
‘For my kids, for Tom, for my family – I think in this situation it’s just a really bad, horrible situation – but staying positive is the only way to get through this,’ Kelsey said.
‘I am a super positive person and I think that’s what’s so hard. People are looking at me asking, “How does she get out of bed in the morning?” But it’s the only way to get through this.’
Kelsey also recalled the first moment she saw Tom have a seizure during a family holiday over the summer in front of their daughter, Aurelia.
‘His hands were sweating and next thing massive seizure,’ she said. ‘It was overwhelmingly traumatic for everyone.’
She continued: ‘I just felt so bad, for a moment I forgot I was pregnant. I had this bump and I just kept thinking, “how am I gong to get Tom through this?”
Kelsey and Tom decided not to get a prognosis, keeping hope alive that the 32-year-old will defy the odds.
‘I just think Tom being Tom, he doesn’t need that and I don’t think it’s good for anyone – and for me, I don’t need to know,’ she explained.
Tom recently told OK! magazine he’s finding it ‘tough’ not being able to be hands on with his newborn baby Bodhi as he undergoes treatment. He’s just completed his first round of chemotherapy and radiotherapy and is gearing up for his second.
Breaking the news of his diagnosis to fans on social media, he wrote: ‘We decided, after a lot of thought, that rather than hiding away and trying to keep it a secret, we would do one interview where we could lay out all the details and let everyone know the facts in our own way.
‘We are all absolutely devastated but we are gonna fight this all the way. We don’t want your sadness, we just want love and positivity and together we will raise awareness of this terrible disease and look for all available treatment options.
‘It’s gonna be a tough battle but with everyone’s love and support we are going to beat this.’
Loose Women airs weekdays at 12.30pm on ITV.
