The Wanted's Tom Parker shares touching tribute to wife Kelsey on anniversary

"Nothing we can’t get through together."

Tom Parker and wife Kelsey have shared touching tributes to each other on their anniversary.


The Wanted star took to Instagram yesterday to wish his wife of 11 years a happy anniversary after the "slight obstacles" they have recently had to face.

Parker was diagnosed with a brain tumour earlier this year. The couple recently welcomed their second child together too.

"December 2009, 11 years on," he wrote. "We met in a nightclub and I fell head over heels in love with you. It’s been an incredible journey so far, lots of adventures, a whole lotta love and two beautiful kids.

"Some slight obstacles to overcome but nothing we can’t get through together. I love you so much."

Kelsey also shared her own post to mark the occasion, calling Tom "my strength."


"When we were just kids we met and fell in love with another," she said.  "Crazy, young, adventurous and a little bit drunk but so in love.

"This year we have faced the biggest challenge but we have the most important thing and that is each other and our beautiful family. Thomas Parker - you are my strength. Happy anniversary baby."

Tom was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour earlier this year. The star, who rose to fame during his time in UK band The Wanted, revealed that he had been living with grade four glioblastoma following many unexplained seizures.


"You know that we’ve both been quiet on social media for a few weeks and it’s time to tell you why," he said on Instagram at the time. "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 and Kelsey welcomed their second child earlier this year. Bandmate Max George recently let slip on talkshow Lorraine that Kelsey "gave birth to her second child last week."

"He's a fighter, Tom will be alright," said George at the time. "I spoke to him yesterday and he's doing good, he's doing great."
