Tom’s defiant post comes after he and his wife Kelsey welcomed their second child.

Max George announced the couple’s happy news when he appeared on Lorraine on Tuesday morning to talk all things Strictly Come Dancing.

Max was asked by Lorraine how Tom is doing following his inoperable brain tumour diagnosis, which he exclusively revealed to OK! magazine recently, to which he said: “Yeah, I spoke to him yesterday and he’s doing good, he’s doing great.”

He added: “Kelsey gave birth to their second child last week, so, yeah, he’s a fighter, Tom will be alright.”

Max, who was sat next to his dance partner Dianne Buswell, blew a kiss to Tom and his family through the camera and said: “I love you all!”

Tom and Kelsey announced they were expecting a baby boy together with adorable photos earlier this year.

However, a year which should have been filled with happiness was marred with heartbreak as the couple revealed Tom has been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour, called glioblastoma.


Speaking in an exclusive interview with OK! magazine , 30 year old Kelsey said: “People have said this illness couldn’t have come at a worse time, but there’s not exactly a good time.”

She continued: “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.”

Kelsey revealed she is still coming to terms with the singer’s diagnosis as she said: “If someone had told me my life was going to be taking Tom to radiotherapy in London every day and I’d be 36 weeks pregnant at the time, I wouldn’t have believed them.”
