Tom Parker's wife thought he was just "depressed with man flu" before they discovered he has an inoperable brain tumour.
The Wanted star's wife Kelsey opened up to OK! Magazine about what her thoughts were before they got the heartbreaking diagnosis.
Asked how they are doing at the moment, 32-year-old Tom replied: "I’m still in complete shock, it’s so much to take in."
Kelsey then revealed the pair had an inkling that something wasn't quite right back in July but at first she thought her husband just had a bad case of man flu and never thought the worst was to come.
She told the publication: "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."
Tom added: "I knew something wasn’t right, but I never expected it to be this. You never think this will happen to you."
Revealing she first thought it was just man flu, Kelsey, who is pregnant, opened up on how she feels.
She said: "I honestly thought he was depressed about having man flu. We can’t even believe we’re having this conversation."

She 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."
Tom added: "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."
The 32-year-old and his wife Kelsey are already parents to a little girl, and are now expecting their second child, a boy, together.
Tom has now started radiotherapy and chemotherapy to try and prolong his life.
