Molly-Mae Hague announces birth of baby girl with Tommy Fury
Congratulations Tommy and Molly-Mae!
Molly-Mae Hague has given birth to her baby girl, the star has announced.
She welcomed the new arrival with long-term boyfriend and boxer Tommy Fury, who she met on the fifth series of Love Island.
Molly-Mae, an influencer, creative director and reality TV star, announced the news on her Instagram today.
The couple, both 23, first announced that they were expecting a baby last September, sharing a black-and-white video of her growing baby bump.
She has since vlogged her pregnancy on her YouTube channel, to 1.73m subscribers.
Molly-mae and Tommy shared their happy news with a joint post, showing a black and white photo of the trio in hospital, captioned with the date of their baby’s birth – 23/01/23.
She then added further updates and adorable photos in her Instagram stories, writing: “One week old today. I can’t believe we get to keep you forever.
“Becoming your mum has been the best thing to ever happen to me… it doesn’t seem possible but my love for you grows with each passing moment.
“There is no feeling like holding you in my arms little one, my heart literally explodes.
“Thank you for entering the world safely for us and blessing us with the gift of being your parents.
“We promise to love and care for you unconditionally forever.”
Fans had been speculating that the star had given birth after her social media fell silent more than a week ago.
And then Jake Paul, Tommy’s boxing rival, appeared to leak the news on his own twitter last week.
Molly-Mae has a huge following of 6.8 million on Instagram alone, and is also the creative director of Manchester-based retailer Pretty Little Thing.
Her long-term boyfriend Tommy Fury is a professional boxer and the younger brother of two-time world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.
The Love Island lovebirds have now been flooded with comments and well-wishes from fans and fellow celebrities.

Within half an hour, their post has racked up more than one million likes and more than 10,000 comments.
Their fellow Love Island alumni, including Maura Higgins and Montana Brown, have been among those offering their congratulations.
Tommy and Molly-Mae have not yet shared their baby’s name with the public.
