The Wanted’s Tom Parker and wife share heartwarming video of their children amid singer’s cancer battle
The Wanted star Tom Parker is surrounding himself with family as he battles terminal brain cancer.
In a new Instagram video, Parker’s wife, actress Kelsey Hardwick, shared a tender moment between the family inside their UK home, in which Aurelia lovingly cradled her baby brother.
“I just can’t cope with how funny she is. Forever loving my little Rae of sunshine who makes my day every day,” Hardwick captioned the clip.
Parker, who rose to fame with the British boy band The Wanted, was diagnosed with brain cancer in October, just weeks before Bodhi’s arrival.
In a heartbreaking Instagram post, the singer told fans he would undergo treatment immediately, but he and his family chose to remain positive despite the prognosis.

“We are all absolutely devastated but we are gonna fight this all the way,” he wrote. “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.”
Indeed, Hardwick has been his rock throughout this entire ordeal, as have their children. Recently, the mum-of-two paid tribute to their kids and thanked them for adding colour to their lives.
“At first it was us @tomparkerofficial. Then along came our Rae of sunshine,” Hardwick wrote on Instagram recently. “We are now complete with our enlightenment Bodhi. Life is tough my darlings but love, positivity and light will always push us through.”
