The singer announced that the couple were expecting a son earlier this year, before Parker revealed that he was suffering with a terminal brain tumour. 

The Wanted's 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. "I spoke to him yesterday and he's doing good, he's doing great."

Parker, who rose to fame as part of the UK boyband over a decade ago, announced earlier this month that he was diagnosed with the tumour while on holiday with his family.

"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. "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."

"We are all absolutely devastated but we are gonna fight this all the way," he added. "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."

Parker later told OK! Magazine that the tumour was terminal, but that he remains hopeful he can be successfully treated.

"All I could think was, “F**king hell!” I was in shock," he said. "It’s stage four glioblastoma and they’ve said its terminal. It was a lot to deal with by myself. I still haven’t processed it."

The couple, who married in 2018, have yet to confirm the birth of their second child.
