Kelsey Parker speaks out about her first Christmas without Tom

“Tom’s not going to be there this year”

Kelsey Parker has opened up about her first Christmas without her husband Tom Parker.

The mum-of-two lost her husband to brain cancer this March. The Wanted singer was diagnosed with Stage IV brain cancer in October 2020.

Since Tom’s passing, Kelsey has been opening up about dealing with her unimaginable grief.

Kelsey and her two children are preparing for their first Christmas without Tom. The mum said it is going to be incredibly difficult for them, but she wants to make sure the day is still magical for her two young children.

She told Good Morning Britain;

“You could be in a room full of people and still feel lonely. Because people don’t understand how I feel.”

Kelsey said, “It’s really hard for my friends and family, because they can’t imagine how I actually feel.”

“Christmas is going to be so tough for me this year. Last year Aurelia did understand the Christmas process and this year she’s a year older.

“Tom’s not going to be there this year. We’re not going to wake up to Christmas morning together as a family,” Kelsey continued.

“It’s going to be me and the kids,” she added.

Kelsey recently opened up about moving on and creating memories after Tom’s death.

She told The Sun that it is important for her to continue on with her life despite the overwhelming grief.

“How lucky am I? People go through their whole life and don’t find love, and I’ve had that.

“I fell in love really hard. We were soulmates. I might have gone my whole life and never met the love of my life, but I did.”

“And that’s why I can’t be sad because I got to do that with him and share that with him,” Kelsey added.
