Kelsey Hardwick & Tom Parker: Dating, Wedding, Baby
It is not clear when actually Kelsey Hardwick met her husband. And so it seems no one in the media knew, to when she and Tom Parker started dating.
It was in March 2016, when they first announced their engagement. Eventually, July of 2018 saw their romantic wedding on the grounds of Ridge Farm in Surrey, England. Only the family and closest friends witnessed them exchange the wedding vows.
On 30th June in 2019, they welcomed their first child, a daughter, and named her Aurelia Rose.
In May 2020 the couple revealed they were expecting their second child. November that year, the family grew into a crew of four with the addition of Bodhi — Tom and Kelsey’s second bundle of joy.
And now, as they awaited the birth of their son, Tom had been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. So much so, Kelsey was not allowed to be by her husband’s side (because of coronavirus rules), as he shared the devastating news.
The member of the British-Irish boy band The Wanted, after he suffered a seizure in July 2020, had taken himself to A&E where he was put on a waiting list for an MRI scan.
Six weeks later, Tom had another more serious seizure while on a family trip to Norwich and was rushed to a hospital.
The Sun reports that the average life expectancy for the illness ranges from between three months to 18 months from the time of diagnosis.
However, both Tom and his wife decided not to ask for a prognosis. When been asked when long can Tom expect to live, Kelsey said:
“We didn’t ask for one. I said that for Tom’s state of mind, and who he is as a person, that would not be good for him. He would literally sit here and count down the days and not live his life.”
Even Tom, 32 (as of 4 March 2020) said, “I’d be like, ‘Day one, done.'”
Even before, Kelsey had written on her Instagram that they are going to beat the battle their way. These were her words at the time of spilling the tumor news:
“There’s no easy way to say this but Tom has sadly been diagnosed with a Brain Tumour and is 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 @ok_mag where we could lay out all the details and let everyone know the facts in our own way.”
She further explained,
“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. Tom and Kelsey xxx”
Tom has joined the groups with people going through the same thing. And it must have, in some way, helped him to process things. He heard stories from people who were still going five years and more after being told that they had only three months to live.
