Tom Parker’s wife Kelsey appeared on Lorraine today (June 14) and made a heartbreaking confession about how daughter Aurelia, three, is coping with her dad’s death.

Tom left behind two children – daughter Aurelia and son Bodhi, who is just one.

Lorraine showed a video of little Aurelia in a bookshop, running over to a copy of her dad’s book.

The tot picked it up and kissed the picture of Tom, with Kelsey explaining: “Whenever she sees her dad she’s like, that’s my dad.”

She’s a bit like, well he’s been on tour so is he going to come back from this?

Lorraine then asked if Aurelia “understands” that Tom has died.

Kelsey added: “Where the book’s out and she’s seen him in store she’s a bit like, well he’s been on tour so is he going to come back from this?

“She’s really confused by it but then she does talk about him every day,” Kelsey said.

“We have things of Tom’s around the house, she’ll see his wallet and be like: ‘That’s Daddy’s wallet.'”

‘I have to get on with it’

Kelsey also explained how their house isn’t a sad one and, despite having “bad days”, she admitted that she just has to “get on with it”.

“They wake up happy, they wake up in a good mood, so I can’t be sad,” she said.

“He wouldn’t want us to be sad and mourning.

“I get my bad days but this is my life and I have to get on with it,” she said.
