Kelsey Parker has shared a tribute to her late husband Tom Parker, after The Wanted star sadly passed away at the end of March at the age of 33.
You can watch the tribute below:
Alongside the video, Kelsey, 32, wrote: "Thank you for all your kind messages today and over the last few weeks. I wasn’t sure if or when to do an interview but Tom always believed in sharing our journey so this felt right.
"All of your messages have reassured me of that. I can’t tell you what it means to us. For keeping Tom and the kids in all of your thoughts and prayers. Positive Parkers Forever. Thank you ❤️ #positiveparkers."
Tom sadly passed away on 30th March after an 18-month battle with brain cancer.
This weekend, Kelsey spoke for the first time about Tom's death. She told The Sun on Sunday: “It was still beautiful until the very end. It was just us and there was so much love in that room.
“Live Forever by Oasis was playing. He was sedated and I was holding his hand... When he passed away I closed his eyes and I gave him a kiss and said I love you. I told him he was my everything.”
Kelsey explained how after saying goodbye to Tom, she sat outside for a moment.
“I was sitting there on this bench, crying, when I looked up and this feather fell down from the sky. I said to Tom before he passed away, ‘Will you give me signs every day’, and he said, ‘Yes’. I knew straight away it was him.
"I kept that feather, I still have it in a little glass pot on my dressing table.”
Tom was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour in October 2020 after suffering a series of "unexplained" seizures during the summer months the same year.
In an interview with OK! Magazine, Tom said doctors told him that they had found a grade 4 glioblastoma.
Before Tom passed away, he had been able to reunite on stage with his Wanted bandmates, for a greatest hits album and tour, visiting Liverpool, Hull and London in March 2022 for which Tom joined his bandmates on stage.
Tom was supported on the tour by Kelsey and their children, Aurelia, two, and Bodhi, one.
Our thoughts remain with Kelsey as well as Tom's loved ones.
