The couple met in a nightclub in 2009

Tom met his wife in a nightclub back in 2009, and they built a strong relationship despite his band's busy tour schedule. The star popped the question to Kelsey in 2016, presenting her with a gorgeous ring.

The pair were married for just two years before Tom was diagnosed with inoperable grade 4 glioblastoma, announcing the news in October 2020. He went on to tour with The Wanted and revealed plans to release his book, Hope, which is described as "a book about living" in July 2022.
