The Wanted star Tom Parker and his wife Kelsey have welcomed their second child days after the singer confirmed he has a terminal brain tumour, according to the singer’s former bandmate.

The singer’s former bandmate Max George was speaking on Lorraine this morning when he said the couple had a baby boy and were “doing great.”

George, 32, who is currently competing on this year’s Strictly Come Dancing, said: “I spoke to him yesterday and he’s doing good, he’s doing great. Kelsey gave birth to their second child last week. He’s a fighter, Tom will be alright.”

He added: “If you’re watching by the way, mwah, I love you all.”

The couple, who have a 15-month-old daughter Aurelia Rose, are yet to confirm the news themselves. His representatives have been approached for comment.

On October 12, Parker, 32, revealed he had a grade four glioblastoma.

Posting a photo with Kelsey, 30, and his daughter earlier this month, the singer wrote: “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.”

The singer is undergoing radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatment.

Life expectancy can range from just three months to 18 months after diagnosis. However, the couple have asked not to know the details of his prognosis so they didn’t “sit and count down the days and not live his life.”

The couple met in a night club about ten years ago. They got engaged in 2016 and married in July 2018. Aurelia Rose was born in July 2019.
