Meanwhile, she also paid tribute to Tom, who sadly died in 2022 after being diagnosed with a brain tumour, and went on to reveal the “signs” that The Wanted singer had given her following baby Delilah’s birth.

“Watching Delilah enter the world was a blessing, especially after witnessing Tommy’s birth, and now seeing his sister being born was the cherry on top of the cake! It’s incredible how Tom continues to show us signs.... 7 being our special number and his birthday falling on the 4th. Truly amazing! Welcome to the world Delilah. You are already so loved,” she added.

In response, Kelsey’s followers were quick to congratulate her on the happy news as they sent their well wishers her way.

“Grief’s a funny thing, isn’t it?” she said. “Living grief and going through it… For me, I am the preacher of, ‘You’ve got to live for each day and take each day as it comes.’ But I think when I hit March, I’m like, ‘Oh my God,’ and I can’t believe it’s actually been two years since I lost Tom.”

She added: “You know, the end of this month will be two years and within the time frame people go, ‘Oh, how does that feel for you?’ But for me it feels ages since I've last seen him, but then only yesterday that it happened.”
