Tom Parker has welcomed his second child with wife Kelsey, it has been revealed.

The 32-year-old, who recently spoke openly about how he is battling a brain tumour, is already dad to 16-month-old daughter Aurelia.

While the couple are yet to confirm the news themselves, Parker's bandmate from The Wanted, Max George, revealed the news on this morning's edition of Lorraine.

The singer said he was "still in shock" after being told he had a grade IV glioblastoma six weeks ago.

Speaking to OK! Magazine, Parker said: "I knew something wasn't right, but I never expected it to be this.

"I'm going to be here. I'm going to fight this."

Parker initially shot to fame as part of 2010's boyband The Wanted, which has hits including All Time Low and Walks Like Rihanna.

The band split in 2014, and Parker has since gone on to star as Danny Zuko in a touring stage production of Grease.

He also made the Celebrity Masterchef semi-finals in 2015.

However, despite his tragic prognosis, Parker is looking to stay positive.

"We are gonna fight this all the way," he said on Instagram. "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.

"There are so many stories of people who were given a bad prognosis and are still here five, 10, even 15 years later. We're going to fight this all the way."

Lorraine continues weekdays on ITV.
