Kelly Brook believes late dad Kenneth inspired her to get pregnant
Last month, Kelly Brook shocked the world via Twitter by revealing that she was expecting a baby girl with her very brand new boyfriend.
But while Kelly and baby daddy Thom Evans, 25, are absolutely ‘delighted’ about the surprise pregnancy, sources close to the 31-year-old model say the news has a bittersweet twist: the unborn baby’s brought back fond memories of her beloved dad Kenneth Parsons, who died of lung cancer in 2007.
‘She believes it’s fate that she fell pregnant around the anniversary of his death,’ says a close friend.
‘She’s become very fatalistic since his passing and thinks everything that happens is pre-determined. It’s made her feel closer to him in some way.’
However, the friend says Kelly‘s determined not to let sad memories mar her joy and is focusing on the amazing times she had with her father.
‘Kelly‘s dad was everything to her,’ says the pal.
‘It’s only natural that he’d be on her mind now she’s going to become a mum.
‘She misses him every single day and I think there’s a part of her that thinks becoming a parent herself will help reconcile her sense of loss.
‘She wholeheartedly believes he’s watching over her and she knows he’d have been thrilled at the news.’
