Kelsey is now dating new man Sean Boggans and told Metro: "It became quite public and it was a lot for me, but I had the support of people.
"My DMs were flooded with people saying they were happy for me and it’s all about breaking down those stereotypes of when is the right time?"
Kelsey, who has two young children with Tom, has been open about navigating her grief, doing a TV show entitled Life After Tom and penning a book about what she has been through.
She said there are not any rules when it comes to grieving and how people should do it, and that people need to do what works for them.
"I get asked if I feel guilty, but it’s like, guilty for living?" she told Metro.
"No, because I’m the one still here, I have to live my life now."
Tom was diagnosed with stage-four glioblastoma in 2020, when Kelsey was expecting their son Bodhi.
She announced in March 2022 that he had died, saying in a moving Instagram post that she was “ forever proud” of him.
Addressing her new relationship, Kelsey recently said on Instagram that Tom was the love of her life but that Boggans had been "wonderful" and "supportive" and that she just needed to "get through the long days".
