Tom Parker and his wife Kelsey have welcomed their second child, his former bandmate Max George has confirmed.
The Wanted and Strictly Come Dancing star Max appeared to spill the beans on Lorraine on Tuesday, leaving fans thrilled for the pair.
Speaking about how Tom was doing after he confirmed he had recently been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour, Max announced that Kelsey “gave birth to her second child last week”.
The couple have yet to announce their new arrival, but fans have taken to Twitter to congratulate them.
Tom and Kelsey, who share 16-month-old daughter Aurelia, confirmed they were expecting their second child earlier this year.
After confirming the news in May, a month later saw the exciting news that the pair were expecting a baby boy.
According to Max, Kelsey gave birth a week ago as he sent his love to the family.
Speaking on the show, Max told host Lorraine Kelly: “I spoke to him yesterday and he’s doing good, he’s doing great.
“Kelsey gave birth to their second child last week. He’s a fighter, Tom will be alright.
“If you’re watching by the way, mwah, I love you all.”
Lorraine then made a comment about the parents and their newborn baby watching her show.
Viewers raced to Twitter on hearing his comment, congratulating the parents amid their recent devastating news.
One fan wrote: “Aw Tom and Kelsey have had their baby!!”
Another said: “I’m soo happy for Tom and Kelsey and Aurelia.”
Mirror online have contacted representatives for Tom and Kelsey for comment.
Tom recently opened up to OK! Magazine about his terminal brain cancer diagnosis, after realising “something was wrong” in July.
Sharing a snap of himself with his wife and young daughter last month, he revealed the news to his fans and said: “Hey guys, you know that we’ve both been quiet on social media for a few weeks and it’s time to tell you why.
“There’s no easy way to say this but I’ve sadly been diagnosed with a Brain Tumour and I’m already undergoing treatment.
“We decided, after a lot of thought, that rather than hiding away and trying to keep it a secret, we would do one interview where we could lay out all the details and let everyone know the facts in our own way.
“We are all absolutely devastated but we are gonna fight this all the way.
“We don’t want your sadness, we just want love and positivity and together we will raise awareness of this terrible disease and look for all available treatment options. It’s gonna be a tough battle but with everyone’s love and support we are going to beat this. Tom and Kelsey xxx.”
Lorraine airs weekdays at 9am on ITV.
