Tom Parker says he’s ‘fighting for’ newborn baby Aurelia amid tumour battle

The Wanted star Tom Parker has told fans he is "fighting for" his children after being diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour.

The 32-year-old singer took to Instagram on Wednesday to post an adorable photo of his eldest child Aurelia.

Tom captioned the photo: "You are everything worth fighting for! @aureliaroseparker."

His followers were quick to comment on the post, with Arlene Phillips writing: "My darling she is beautiful. Thinking of you with love and the wonderful time I had watching you achieve all the amazing lifts in Grease so brilliantly."

James Argent wrote: "She sure is," while EastEnders actress Louisa Lytton added: "The best," alongside some red heart emojis.

It comes after Tom's former bandmate Max George let slip that Tom and his wife Kelsey Hardwick welcomed their second child last week.

Although Tom hasn't addressed his newborn's birth publicly yet, earlier this week Max told ITV's Lorraine: "I spoke to him yesterday. He's doing good, he's doing great.

"Kelsey gave birth to their second child last week so he is a fighter. Tom will be alright. If you're watching I love you all."

Tom broke the heartbreaking news about his brain tumour to his social media followers on October 12 with a difficult message.

It read: "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."

Tom's message continued: "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."

Sadly, the life expectancy for someone suffering with his diagnosis is between just three to 18 months.

The devastated dad told OK! magazine recently: "I'm still in complete shock, it's so much to take in."

"I knew something wasn't right, but I never expected it to be this. You never think this will happen to you."
