Following Tom’s devastating demise, Kelsey has been candid with fans about how she and the children have been coping with his immense loss.
As The Blast reported, during an appearance on the British show “Lorraine,” Kelsey discussed how she has been trying to keep her husband’s legacy alive, especially with her kids.
“I’ve been really honest, but she does still talk about him every day,” she revealed. However, their 3-year-old hasn’t fully grasped that her father is no more.

Kelsey explained, “She doesn’t quite understand that he’s not coming back. So I have to be really blunt to say he’s not coming, that’s it. He’s dead and he’s not coming back.”
Despite Kelsey’s bluntness, their daughter Aurelia believes her father is away on tour with his band.
“She’s a bit like, ‘Well, you’ve been on tour, so is he going to come back from this?’ She’s just really confused by it,” Kelsey admitted.
Our prayers and thoughts continue to go out to Kelsey and the family.
