The Wanted's Tom Parker welcomes second child with wife Kelsey

The Wanted star Tom Parker has welcomed his second child with wife Kelsey.

Bandmate Max George let slip the happy news on Lorraine on Tuesday, saying that his pal – who is currently battling an inoperable brain tumour – and his family are doing fine.

When asked about how Tom was getting on, Max told Lorraine: ‘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’ll be alright. If you’re watching by the way, mwah, I love you all.’

The new addition joins Tom and Kelsey’s 15-month-old daughter, Aurelia.

They previously said they were expecting a baby boy, but neither Kelsey or Tom have spoken to confirm the tot’s arrival.

The happy news comes after the family came forward with the news Tom has been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour.

He has been diagnosed with stage four glioblastoma – an aggressive tumour that can spread quickly if not treated.

Tom, 32 and Kelsey, spoke about the diagnosis in OK! Magazine, admitting that it had put a dampener on her pregnancy.

Speaking about the timing of the ordeal, the expectant mum – who was 36 weeks pregnant at the time of the interview, said: ‘People have said this illness couldn’t have come at a worse time, but there’s not exactly a good time.

‘To be honest, I think I’ve forgotten I’m pregnant. It’s all about Tom at the moment. In four weeks’ time it obviously won’t be, but the whole thing has consumed us.

‘You don’t know how to feel or what to say, because we’ve never been through anything like this as a couple.’

Metro.co.uk has reached out to Tom’s reps for comment.
