Tom Parker’s widow Kelsey hosts first birthday party for daughter without dad as she turns 3

Kelsey Parker celebrated her daughter’s birthday over the weekend with a wonderful party fit for a young princess.

The mum-of-two, 32, who recentlyopened up about coping with life following her husband Tom Parker’s deathat the age of 33 in March, shared pictures from the special day with her followers.

Aurelia’s third birthday party followed a very specific theme and came complete with a mini castle and a selection of Disney princesses belting out the youngster’s favourite tunes. The party is the first one Kelsey has hosted since the death of her husbandfollowing a brain tumour.

In true little princess fashion Aurelia showed up to her party in a pink ruffled dress as she posed in front of a castle with her name emblazoned on it.

Tom and Kelsey’s youngest Bodhi, one, was also at the party and looked adorable in a denim shirt and shorts while he posed with his mum and sister.

Proud mum Kelsey sported an off the shoulder ruffled peach dress and wedge heels as she marked another first without her husband in attendance.

The party was attended by EastEnders star Louisa Lytton and her little one who posed with Aurelia and the Disney princesses.

The party comes as earlier in the month Kelsey spoke to Lorraine about her life with Tom, as well as what it's like raising their two children while trying to cope with the loss of their dad.

In the heartbreaking interview, Kelsey admitted that she is "lonely", but the kids help her get through the day, as well as trying to live life like her husband did.

She told Lorraine: "[The kids] wake up happy and in a good mood, so I can't be sad, and he wouldn't want us to be sad and mourning. Don't get me wrong, I get my bad days, of course I do.

"At night it is lonely, I am lonely, but this is my life and I have to get on with it."

Kelsey added that Aurelia is still struggling to comprehend that her dad is no longer with them, and keeps thinking he might be coming back.

She said: "Whenever she sees her dad she's like 'it's my dad!', she will be three at the end of this month.

She continued: "I've been really honest [with her], but she still talks about him every day and still doesn't quite understand he's not coming back. I'm having to be really blunt to say 'he's not coming back, that's it, he's dead', and she doesn't really understand.

"The book's out, she's seen him in the store, she's been like 'well he's been on tour, is he going to come back from this?', so she's really confused by it.

"Then we do talk about him every day, she does ask about him every day. We have little things around the house that were Tom's, so she'll see his wallet and say 'that's daddy's wallet' and I say 'yes, that's daddy's wallet'."
