Tom Parker’s widow Kelsey shared a moving message on Father’s Day Sunday.
Kelsey was joined by her and the late Wanted singer’s children — daughter Aurelia, 2, and son Bodhi, 1 — for a sweet clip shared on Instagram. The family lost Tom at age 33 in March following a battle with brain cancer.
She told the camera, “Hi guys. Say hi guys…. We just wanted to jump on and say a massive, massive thank you for all of your messages today. Don’t we? We want to say thank you.
“Today will be a hard day for us as a family but the sun is shining, he’s out there shining, isn’t he? Daddy’s shining on us today.”
Kelsey went on, “I’m wearing his top today because if you’re having a bad day, guys, just smile and it will make everything better.
“And those are chicken pox on his face we’re just gonna spend a lovely day together as a family today,” she added of her little one’s spots.
“Aurelia has picked out her favourite dress and Bodhi has got his superhero…”
Kelsey wrote in the caption that she’d received “an inbox full of lovely messages” before 9 a.m. on such a difficult day.
Her post included, “Father’s Day is not easy for everyone but it’s a chance to celebrate all the amazing Dads out there including Tom and celebrating him is currently my favourite thing to do.”
