"We are gonna fight this all the way," they said. The Wanted's Tom Parker has become a father for the second time. The happy news comes just weeks after the singer announced the devastating news that he had been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour. Tom's former band mate Max George confirmed the family's news during an appearance on ITV's Lorraine on Tuesday morning. Max, who is currently starring in Strictly, told Lorraine: "I spoke to him [Tom] yesterday.
He's doing great. "Kelsey gave birth to their second child last week. He'll be fine Tom's a fighter." Tom, from Bolton, and his wife Kelsey are already parents to their 16-month-old daughter, Aurelia. The couple revealed in June that they were expecting a baby boy. (Image: ITV) Tom, 32, announced earlier this month that he has begun radiotherapy and chemotherapy in the hope of prolonging his life.
He wrote on Instagram: "Hey guys, you know that we've both been quiet on social media for a few weeks and it's time to tell you why. "There's no easy way to say this but I've sadly been diagnosed with a Brain Tumour and I'm already undergoing treatment. "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. Tom and Kelsey xxx"
