Tom Parker's wife Kelsey has shared how they want to have two more children in the next few years amid his ongoing brain tumour battle.

The 31 year old's other half exclusively told OK! about his diagnosis in October 2020, shortly after they announced they were expecting their second child together.

Since then, Kelsey has given birth to their now-11 month old son Bodhi and Tom has revealed that his tumour has reduced in size as a result of the treatment he's been undergoing.

With their lives appearing to be on the up, Kelsey has now shared how she and Tom, who are also parents to daughter Aurelia, two, plan on expanding their brood.

“I’ve always wanted four children so I think we’ll try again in a year or two," she told The Sun Online. "The kids have been a saving grace for us during this time. They are our reason to get up and face every day.”

During 33 year old Tom's lowest moments, he told his wife how he felt he couldn't be a father to their children when that's all he wanted to do.

"It really upset him. He’s determined to see them grow up. We have never talked about the prospect of him dying – we just can’t go there," Kelsey explained.

Kelsey, who recently posed for a sweet snap with Tom one year after his seizure that led to the diagnosis, went on to insist she never felt like she would "crack" under the pressure of Tom's treatment and raising two children under the age of two.

However, she did feel "frustrated" for Tom and did her best to make food that he wanted so he could keep up his strength amid his treatment.

She went on to describe how annoyed she felt when people called her an "inspiration".

"I am a strong character and we are getting through it. I don’t want people feeling sorry for me. It’s our life – we are living it every day," she added.

Tom is doing well these days following the latest scan results and recently played with The Wanted for the first time in seven years, with the proceeds going to Stand Up To Cancer and The National Brain Appeal.

After thanking fans for their support, he addressed his wife as he said: "I love you so much. You have been my rock and I don’t know what I’d have done without you.”
