Tom Parker has been seen enjoying some one-on-one time with his daughter in a sweet video.

The Wanted star, whose former bandmate Max George recently broke his silence over Tom's diagnosis, was seen flat on his back on the floor to do breathing exercises when his one year old, Aurelia, distracted him.

In the short clip, which was posted by his pregnant wife Kelsey on Instagram, Tom could be seen wearing a grey T-shirt while his little one donned a gorgeous leopard print onesie as she played with a toy.

"Are you doing breathing with dad?" Kelsey said, before zooming in on her husband and asking: "Daddy, are you doing deep breathing?" To which he responded with a raspy voice: "Yep." Over it, Kelsey wrote: "Helping Daddy…" alongside two red heart emojis.

A second clip showed Aurelia sitting on her dad, whose fans have campaigned to get the band The Wanted to number one, as she bounced on his stomach while enjoying a TV show. Clearly amused, Tom flashed a small smile and held her balance with one hand.

Kelsey, 30, said: "You're not really helping dad, are you? Say deep breathing dad!" and wrote over it: "Not really helping Daddy," with a laughing emoji.

It comes days after Tom made the heartbreaking revelation in an exclusive interview with OK! magazine that he's been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour.

And in the emotional chat, actress Kelsey discussed how she had mistaken his symptoms for the common cold, which men are said to report greater severity symptoms for.

She said in the heartbreaking interview: "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.

"I honestly thought he was depressed about having man flu. We can't even believe we're having this conversation." Tom added: "I'm still in complete shock, it's so much to take in.

"I knew something wasn't right, but I never expected it to be this. You never think this will happen to you."

He admitted: "I think Kelsey has come to terms with it better than me. It's so consuming. It's so hard and it's all I can think about."

Kelsey continued: "It still doesn't feel real. I don't think Tom will ever process this information. It's horrendous.

"Watching your partner go through this is so hard, because how can I tell him to not let it consume him?

"I take his phone away from him, because otherwise he will sit there and Google things and then end up in a hole. The more you Google, the worse possible stuff it throws at you, and that's not good for anyone."
