TOM Parker spent quality time with his daughter Aurelia days after revealing his terminal brain tumour diagnosis.
Tom's pregnant wife Kelsey melted fans hearts with a video on Instagram of the father and daughter resting on the floor at home.
In the clip Tom, 32, keeps his 15-month-old from falling over as she rolls around him in a sweet bid to get his attention.
Kelsey can be heard saying to Aurelia: "Are you doing breathing with dad?"
She adds: "Daddy are you doing deep breathing?"
And Tom dutifuly replies: "Yep!"
Kelsey laughs as she takes another video and says to Aurelia: "You're not really helping daddy are you?!
"Say, 'deep breathing dad'."
The former boyband star received hundreds of messages on Instagram following his shock news and bandmates Jay McGuinness and Max George, who were ushers at his wedding.
Jay, who goes by the name birdspotting on Instagram, wrote: "You've always been one in a million. I love you Tom, let's get popping."
Max penned: "You will beat this mate. You're TOM PARKER. (Love) you."
Meanwhile, former bandmate Nathan Sykes penned a lengthy statement on Twitter, saying: "I've been trying to work out what to say for days, but there are simply no words. It's just the most unbelievably cruel situation. However, Tom will attack this with the same vigour that he has with everything he has ever set his mind to.
"Tom and Kelsey's strength and bravery is incredible which was shown in the interview that was published today. I love and support both Tom and Kels and I'll be right behind them every step of the way of their fight.
"Please keep the whole family in your prayers and send them all the love and support and positivity you possibly can."
Tom rose to fame as a member of chart-topping boy band The Wanted in 2009 and had been keeping busy since their hiatus in 2014.
After appearances on Celebrity Masterchef and The Jump, Tom signed up to The Real Full Monty in 2018.
The devastated singer, who is a father to a 15-month-old daughter and has another baby on the way, revealed he has stage 4 glioblastoma on Instagram and in an interview with OK! Magazine.
He said: "I’m still in complete shock, it’s so much to take in."
Wife Kelsey, who is 36 weeks pregnant, said: "It has been a crazy six weeks. We had an inkling that something was wrong in July, but we never could have imagined it was this."
Tom said the diagnosis didn't feel real and added: "I knew something wasn’t right, but I never expected it to be this. You never think this will happen to you."
The average life expectancy for his illness ranges from between three months to 18 months from the time of diagnosis.
Tom decided not to ask for a prognosis and insists he will beat the illness to have a future with his children.
