Tom Parker’s widow Kelsey took their children on a visit to a bookstore to see his memoir on shelves following its posthumous release.
It also came just a week after Parker announced he would be releasing his autobiography, Hope: My Inspirational Life, detailing his battle with cancer.
The memoir was released posthumously last week, and Kelsey took their small children to see it being sold in a bookstore.
She shared a heartfelt Instagram video, soundtracked to The Wanted’s Gold Forever, showing her holding hands with daughter Aurelia, two, and 21-month-old son Bodhi, as they walked into the store.
Aurelia’s face lit up when she saw her late father on the book cover and gave it a kiss and warm hug. Meanwhile, little Bodhi was seen walking around carrying another copy in his hands.
Kelsey also took a moment to go through the book with the little ones, showing Aurelia pictures of Parker through the years.
In the caption, the mum-of-two wrote: ‘A special moment… very proud to take our babies to see Tom’s book in store. Rae’s face when she saw his 🥰
‘Tom so desperately wanted this to be a bestseller and I’m keeping everything crossed that becomes a reality this weekend. Thank you so much for all your support and lovely comments. Every single purchase means the world to us.’
Announcing the book on March 21, Parker told his social media followers: ‘It’s a book about finding hope in whatever situation you’re dealt, and living your best life no matter what. It will show you how having faith in hope and daring to dream means you can carry on, against all odds.’
Parker added that the book ‘is not about dying: It’s a book about living’, before confirming that fans are able to pre-order the memoir now.
The late singer’s Wanted bandmates have announced that they will be postponing their upcoming gig as they aren’t ready to return to the stage so soon after Parker’s death.
