Tom Parker’s wife has revealed he suffered a terrifying seizure in front of his daughter before finding out about his brain tumour diagnosis.
The Wanted singer, 32, devastated his fans in October when he discovered he has a terminal brain tumour after being diagnosed with stage four glioblastoma.
The doting dad and his wife Kelsey are trying to stay positive about the heartbreaking news for the sake of their daughter Aurelia and newborn son Bodhi.
Tom’s beloved partner appeared on Loose Women to update his followers on his current health battle.
She explained: “So we believe Tom had a seizure in July. But I wasn’t actually around, so Tom rang me like, ‘I don’t really feel well Kels. Something’s happened’. I said, ‘What do you think Tom?’ He said, ‘I don’t know.’
“So for six weeks we didn’t know he had a seizure. Then we went on holiday with the family.
“Me and Aurelia went upstairs to Tom in bed. We were talking, just having a normal conversation, and he said, ‘Kels, I feel really hot, my hands are sweating and I’m like, ‘Okay.’ Next minute, massive seizure.
“Thankfully, I was with my family so my stepdad came running in with my auntie and they dealt with the situation. I took Aurelia out of the room. Obviously it was just absolutely overwhelmingly traumatic for everyone.”
Kelsey revealed how the couple are trying to keep positive.
She said: “For my kids, for Tom, for my family. I think in this situation, it’s a really bad horrendous situation.
“But I think staying positive is the only way to get through this.”
Tom believed he had “man flu” before he found out the tragic news of his brain tumour.
The star has already had six weeks of chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment.
Kelsey has been there every step of the way and will continue to do so for her husband.
