Grieving Kelsey Parker cosied up to her two children Aurelia, three, and Bodhi, two, as she celebrated her first Christmas without late husband Tom on Sunday.

The Wanted star lost his life in March this year at the age of 33 , after a year-and-a-half long battle with stage four glioblastoma brain cancer. 

32-year-old Kelsey put on a brave face for the Instagram snaps and said she was ‘showing up’ for the kids.

Kelsey put on a glamorous display in a black satin shirt and a matching fur-trimmed skirt, teamed with tights and boots.

Aurelia was dressed in a festive red dress, while Bodhi donned a tartan shirt and beige trousers. 

She also told her followers of her struggle ahead of a ‘tough’ time without Tom. Kelsey wrote: ‘Merry Christmas everyone’

‘Thank you to everyone who has commented and sent messages this year. I do read them all and having so much support really means the world.

‘If you’re missing someone today remember there’s no right or wrong way to be feeling. Do what’s right for you and be kind to yourself.’

On Friday Kelsey admitted she’s been dreading Christmas this year, as it’s the first one without her late husband.

In an emotional post she explained the difficulty of grief for herself and their two children.

She explained that the toughness of the day was exacerbated by the fact that she had her grandad’s funeral tomorrow.

‘Hey everyone, I know a lot of you have been checking in with me today and I just really appreciate it, thank you so much.

‘Today’s been a real struggle. It’s my grandad’s funeral tomorrow, so I think that’s like bringing, like surfacing a lot of grief and trauma and probably a bit of post-traumatic stress. It’s just been so tough.’

She then added that she was ‘caught off guard’ by a wave of grief after wrapping presents for her children and realising they would be from just her this year.

Kelsey added: ‘And you know what I’ve spent the evening doing? Wrapping presents.

‘And not that Tom would have ever helped me actually wrap a present. I don’t think for the whole 13 years I was with him, he actually ever wrapped a present, except for mine and I blatantly know he got someone else to wrap them.

‘It was writing the gift tags. Like ‘To Ray, to Bo, Merry Christmas, Lots of love Mummy’. Like that really really got me tonight. It caught me by surprise.

‘And I sat there and I was writing them and I was like all these presents are just from me. I don’t know, this is the thing with grief, it literally catches you off guard.

‘And I think deep down I did know this because that’s why I’ve just been putting off Christmas. I’ve literally just been dreading, dreading Christmas.’

Trying to stay positive, Kelsey went on: ‘But I’ve got to make the best of what I’ve got. I’ve also gotta do it for the kids. I’ve gotta make sure that this is an amazing Christmas for them.

‘I’m just going to be so heartbroken. Nothing like a funeral a few days before Christmas. I’ve got a poem that I’m reading for the funeral. And I’ve been going through that this morning. That just absolutely tore me apart.

She signed off by sadly concluding: ‘I mean what a year.’

Awful: She then added that she was 'caught off guard' by a wave of grief after wrapping presents for her children and realising they would be from just her this yea
