‘Tom is irreplaceable’ – Kelsey Parker opens up about her new boyfriend

Kelsey Parker has revealed she has a new boyfriend after tragically losing her husband Tom Parker to a brain tumour in March 2022.

Kelsey stressed that nobody will ever replace Tom, but she said Sean has been a massive support during this harrowing time.

The mum-of-two explained to The Sun UK that she wasn’t looking for anything when she met Sean and admitted that it was a total shock.

“Sean will never replace Tom because Tom is irreplaceable to me.

“But it’s having that person to talk to and share your day with.”

“I wasn’t looking for anything when we met and it came as a shock to me but we just genuinely got on and the relationship progressed.”

Speaking about her new partner, Kelsey said Sean is “a good guy”.

He also doesn’t “shy away” from talking about Tom.

“He comes to my house and it’s full of Tom, he’s so present and the kids talk about him all the time. But Sean doesn’t shy away from that.”

She continued, “After the kids met him, Aurelia said, ‘Daddy died of a brain tumour’ and he just replied, ‘I know, darling. We all miss your Daddy’.

“He’s another reassuring person for them, he’s a massive support,” she said.

“He brings so much joy and laughter to me, and that’s what I need. When I’m having a bad day he’s there for me, to help me process that,” she said.

Kelsey explained that Sean has given her the chance “to escape it all”.

As happy as she is, Kelsey admitted she was nervous to reveal she was seeing someone.

“I wasn’t ready to admit I was seeing someone. I was conscious of what other people would think, how others would be hurt,” she added.
