Molly-Mae admits she's 'struggling massively' with her body image after birth of Bambi

Molly-Mae Hague admitted she has been "struggling massively" with her body image after giving birth to Bambi.

The Love Island star, 24, and her partner Tommy Fury, also 24, welcomed their first child earlier this year.

She has been providing fans with updates on her life as a new mum and recently took to her YouTube channel to answer a few fan questions.

"I am struggling massively with my body at the minute," Molly-Mae said. "As much as I've just had a baby, I'm truly not helping myself.

"My diet at the minute is shocking. I'm doing next to no exercise and I don't know what's doing on. Because before I had Bambi, I used to like going to the gym I wasn't a fitness fanatic but I used to love doing my walks and doing my general exercise but at the minute, I'm like truly against it and I have no idea why.

"Especially because every day I wake up and look in the mirror and I'm not comfortable with the way I look and that's just me being honest."

She added: "I do find it hard to look at myself in the mirror naked and think, 'You look great' or 'I love my body'. I'm trying to erase it and I'm definitely accepting it but it doesn't mean I love it and it doesn't mean I'm happy with it and I know I can be a lot happier."

Molly-Mae said she will be trying to walk a couple of thousand steps a day as she gets back into exercising.

The TV personality has a gym at home but she "doesn't know why" she doesn't want to exercise.

She recently opened up about motherhood, explaining how it is harder than she ever expected and told any mums and dads caring for two kids that they're superheroes.

Earlier this month, Molly told fans to send questions her way on social media as she took some time to open up.

They wrote: "Are there plans for a little Bambi brother or sister soon?".

The star didn't shirk the question and responded: "Definitely not for a good while.

"Some day I'll be ready, but it's not unknown that I have found it harder than I expected to (even though I'm doing so much better now).

"Plus I don't know how anyone looks after more than one baby, you're superheroes!"
