Since his death, Kelsey, 33, has found happiness with former convict Sean Boggans, who was jailed in 2013 for four years after he killed a man with one punch.
Kelsey, who has received vitriolic abuse for moving onto a new romance following the tragic loss of her late husband, says Sean is ‘full of remorse’ over the attack.
However, while Kelsey admitted it has been tough to receive the criticism, her relationship has been accepted by Tom’s mum and his family.
The star said she was initially nervous to tell Tom’s parents about Sean as she was scared of hurting them.
However, she revealed they have been incredibly accepting of her new relationship.
Talking in an interview with Closer magazine, the mother-of-two admitted: ‘Tom’s mum was brilliant and gave me her blessing. She just wants me and the kids to be happy.’
She continued: ‘I spent months feeling not much at all after Tom died, and felt I had lost who I was as a person. I was suddenly “Kelsey the widow,” but Sean doesn’t treat me with pity.’

Kelsey’s new man, electrician Sean was jailed for four years in 2013 after he killed Shaun McDermott with a single punch while waiting for a taxi outside an east London boozer.
Sean was waiting for his then-girlfriend to collect him when an argument broke out with the 44-year-old, who was knocked to the ground during the skirmish. CCTV footage later captured the electrician walking away from the scene.
Shaun was discovered by police laying on the pavement at about 1am with a brain haemorrhage. A postmortem found that he died as a result of head injuries, with Boggans handed a four-year sentence by a judge at the Old Bailey.
Discussing Sean’s past, Kelsey said: ‘Everyone has a past and Sean has a lot of remorse for what happened.’
The star also revealed she thinks she has been judged more for moving on as a woman, than she would have been if she was a man.
Kelsey previously hit back at trolling last month as she admitting that she ‘deserves a little bit of happiness’ after Tom’s death.
She opened up about how her new relationship with Sean had been ‘really hard’ to navigate.
That’s not plain sailing either because it’s really hard, we’re trying a new relationship and I am grieving someone and it’s really, really hard for both of us but do you know what, I’m really, really happy and deserve a little bit of happiness.’

She added: ‘Life’s tough and you have to be resilient, I have been resilient and I feel like I need happiness now.’
‘People are so quick to judge, aren’t they? It’s funny because if I were a man, I don’t think there would be an issue with me getting into a new relationship! I’ve had some not nice messages, people saying how awful it is that I’m shacked up with a new man, but it’s so far from the truth.’
Kelsey recently published her book With And Without You which has helped her deal with her grief by letting her put it all down on paper.
She discussed how she has learnt to deal with grief and continue her life after Tom taught her that life is too short.
