Tom Parker’s widow Kelsey has shared an emotional post to mark what would have been her late husband’s 34th birthday, as she opened up about her “really tough day” online.
On Thursday, the mum-of-two, 32, took to Instagram to thank her loyal legion of fans for the hundreds of sweet messages of support she had received throughout the day on The Wanted star’s birthday.
The singer sadly passed away on March 30 after he lost his battle with terminal brain cancer nearly two years after he learned about his diagnosis back in October 2020.

Since then, the loving mum has updated her 356k followers about her adjustment to life without her husband as she continues to raise their two kids as a single parent.
Luckily the blonde bombshell’s day started to improve after she accompanied her two children and the rest of their dance school on an afternoon tri[ to Regent’s Park in London to watch 101 Dalmatians.
To keep the train full of children occupied for the two-and-a-half-hour long ride, the group burst out into song as they performed This Is Me from the musical The Greatest Showman.
And a beaming Kelsey could be seen in the background clapping and swaying in time with the music as she listened to the song with a proud smile on her face.
The starlet couldn’t help but share the sweet moment on social media alongside her lengthy caption online which read: “Thanks for lovely messages around Tom’s birthday.
“Not going to lie, it started as a really tough day, feeling pretty fed up with the world but thankfully this lovely lot have lifted my spirits…
“@k2kstars trip to see 101 Dalmatian's at Regent’s Park, how can their voices not fill you with a bit of joy.”
She added: “Happy Birthday up there my love, miss you more and more each day. I know you will be proud of me and your babies [love heart emoji, sparkle emoji and prayer emoji].”
