Tom Parker refused to let his devastating cancer diagnosis get in the way of an incredible family Christmas.

The Wanted star loved every minute of his day as he laughed with his wife and kids as they tore into their presents.

The brave 32-year-old is currently undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

He is battling the brain tumour after the star was diagnosed with stage four glioblastoma earlier this year.

His partner Kelsey Hardwick and two children Aurelia and Bodhi kept him busy as they all had a day to remember.

Watching his daughter Aurelia open her pram and doll, Tom filmed it all for Instagram.

"What did father Christmas bring you? You got a baby! Give the baby a cuddle," he could be heard saying in the background of the cute video.

Tom joked she's "The Grinch" as the little one played up to the camera.

The singer got lots of gifts himself of course – he proudly showed of a new hat and bag.

Tom was diagnosed with a brain tumour after suffering a massive seizure in the summer and explained that he has already had six weeks of demanding treatment.

The dad revealed earlier this week that he is suffering from memory loss after starting his chemo and radiotherapy treatment.

In his video, open Tom told the world: "As some of you know, I have been through chemo and radio, haven't I?

"Which was pretty god-damn brutal, but some of the side effects from the chemo and radio are you get bad memory loss."

Tom turned to his wife, asking her: "Mine was already bad, wasn't it?"

Kelsey joked: "Horrendous already, so now I'm like… literally, it's even worse!"

"But it's the weirdest thing because like, I'll go to her [Kelsey], 'What did I just do?' But I can remember stuff like this!"
