Tom Parker and his with Kelsey have welcomed their second child.

The news was revealed by Tom's bandmate and Strictly Come Dancing contestant Max George as he appeared on Lorraine on Tuesday (October 27).

The couple, who are already parents to 15-month-old daughter Aurelia, announced they were expecting a baby boy back in June.

"I spoke to him yesterday and he's doing good, he's doing great," Max told Lorraine Kelly.

"Kelsey gave birth to their second child last week. He's a fighter, Tom, he will be alright. If you're watching by the way, mwah, I love you all."

Tom recently announced that he'd been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour, describing the moment he was given the news in an interview with OK! Magazine.

"They pulled the curtain around my bed and said, 'It's a brain tumour.' All I could think was, 'F*****g hell!' I was in shock.

"It's stage four glioblastoma and they've said it's terminal. It was a lot to deal with by myself. I still haven't processed it."

Speaking about dealing with Tom's illness while heavily pregnant, Kelsey added: "People have said this illness couldn’t have come at a worse time, but there’s not exactly a good time.

"To be honest, I think I’ve forgotten I’m pregnant. It’s all about Tom at the moment. In four weeks’ time it obviously won’t be, but the whole thing has consumed us.

"You don’t know how to feel or what to say, because we’ve never been through anything like this as a couple."

Tom, 32, is currently undergoing back to back chemotherapy and radiotherapy, and has declined to hear a prognosis.

"There are so many stories of people who were given a bad prognosis and are still here five, 10, even 15 years later. We're going to fight this all the way."
