Ashley Cain recounts moment Azaylia had seizures and stopped breathing as nursing team rushed to save her
Stars pay emotional tributes to Ashley Cain's baby daughter Azaylia after her tragic death aged eight months
“I thought little Azaylia was gonna f***ing do it. I thought she was gonna pull through. It shouldn’t happen to kids. It shouldn’t happen to anyone.”
Tom was diagnosed with stage four glioblastoma last year after weeks on unexplained seizures.
The Glad You Came singer is currently undergoing radiotherapy and chemotherapy which has led to a "significant" reduction in his brain tumour.
Former bandmate-turn-actor Max George shared on his podcast Dangerous Dinner that doctors were “shocked” at how well he is responding to treatment.
He said: “Doctors were actually shocked by how well he’s responded – all of his tumours have been suppressed so he’s in the best hands.”
Tom and his wife Kelsey Parker, 30, got married back in 2018 and have since gone on to have two children together, Aurelia, 17 months and six-month-old Bodhi along with their dog Buddy.
And despite Tom’s terminal illness, Kelsey still wants to have more children with him after the couple watched the documentary 22 Kids and Counting on ITV.
Tom told his 212,000 Instagram followers: “We’re watching this programme and this family have 22 kids. 22 kids!”
His other half quickly responded: “Can I have 22? We didn’t start young enough.”
Tom replied: “I love Aurelia to death but I couldn’t have 22 of them. We’ve got a boy and a girl, let’s not be greedy. I think I’m done for kids. Do you want more?
Still determined to expand their family, Kelsey said: “A hundred percent so get that out of your mind. You’re not done.”
“Well, there we have it. She determines what’s done with my semen. Well, that’s the crux of it”, he joked.
