Tom Parker's widow, Kesley Parker, has shared a heartfelt video of their daughter kissing the cover of his book after spotting it in a bookstore for the first time.
The late singer, who passed away earlier this year at the age of 33, had his memoir, entitled Hope: My Inspirational Life, published posthumously on May 26 this year.
Following the book's release, Kelsey decided to document the special moment that their children, Aurelia, almost three, and Bodhi, 21 months, got to see it in a bookstore for the first time.
Posting to her Instagram, she recording them heading to a Waterstones to get copies of the book, and wrote that Tom "desperately wanted" the book "to be a bestseller" – and that Kelsey wants that to become a reality this bank holiday weekend.
In the full post, she wrote: "A special moment… very proud to take our babies to see Tom’s book in store. Rae’s face when she saw his!
"Tom so desperately wanted this to be a bestseller and I’m keeping everything crossed that becomes a reality this weekend. Thank you so much for all your support and lovely comments. Every single purchase means the world to us."
In the video, you can see Aurelia and Bodhi running over to the stand full of the books, with Aurelia flicking through the book and looking at the photographs of her and her dad.
She was also recorded hugging the book tightly before kissing her dad's face on the cover. Bodhi was also seen excitedly carrying a copy of the book around with him. As the video played, Gold Forever by The Wanted played in the background.
People were touched by the video and shared their love on the post, with Brian McFadden, of Westlife, writing "This is beautiful," with a heart emoji and kisses.
Singer-songwriter RuthAnne wrote: "How special is this!!!! It’s an amazing amazing book! Truly inspiring! So proud".
One person wrote: "Rae’s face and Bodhi carrying the book is just too sweet," while another said "Oh I’m crying, when she hugged and kissed the book," with a crying emoji.
The book is described as "his legacy in his own words", and talks about his life from his working class background to taking the world by storm with The Wanted, before finding life after pop stardom with his young family.
The book also talks about his diagnosis of incurable brain cancer in 2020, leading him to become a prominent campaigner for brain cancer research, and the life he lived to its fullest.
