Molly-Mae Hague shares unknown detail about daughter Bambi as she tells fans she's 'struggling massively'

Molly-Mae Hague has shared a previously unknown detail about her baby daughter after keeping it to herself for months. The former Love Island star welcomed her first child into the world back in January with her boyfriend Tommy Fury, who she met on the ITV2 dating show.

Since announcing her arrival earlier this year, a week after she was born on January 2023, and her Disney-inspired name, Bambi, the new mum has been sharing updates on her new life previously shared how she was "struggling and overwhelmed" while getting used to life with a baby and admitted she was 'not prepared' for what was to come after she gave birth to her baby girl.

In March, Molly-Mae said that having a baby was '100% harder than she imagined. In response to a fan, Molly-Mae revealed: "I'm not going to beat around the bush... I was not prepared. She's completely and utterly worth it all though. Every single hard moment."

But earlier this month in a new Q&A with her millions of social media followers, Molly-Mae was quizzed on whether she had plans to have a second child any time soon. "Definitely not for a good while," the influencer confessed.

"Some day I'll be ready... but it's not unknown that I've found it harder than I expected to (even though I'm doing much better now). Plus I don't know how anyone looks after more than one baby, you're superheroes."

Now, in her latest YouTube vlog, Molly-Mae has shared more details about her five-month-old daughter by sharing her full name for the first time. During her video, the 24-year-old took time to answer some questions sent over to her by fans, one of which was asking whether or not her little girl has a middle name.

"This is a good one and I've never answered it before," Molly-Mae, who also announced she is stepping back from her creative director role at Pretty Little Thing in the same video, began in response, before revealing that after a lot of back and forth, she and boxer Tommy decided against a middle name for their first child.

However, she did reveal the name they had originally planned out for Bambi before she was born. "Her name's literally just Bambi Fury which is so weird because I was so certain she would have a middle name," Molly-Mae continued. "I was adamant, but we just couldn't decide on one. And we kept coming up with random middle names, like for a while she was going to be Bambi Winter.

"And now I'm like 'What the hell?' Where did we pluck that, out from the sky? It wasn't anything sentimental to us it doesn't make any sense." Other names were also contenders too as she revealed: "And then as well we toyed with the idea of Esme because my Nanna is called Esme. Which I actually love, but in the end we were doing her birth certificate and we didn't put one down."

Elsewhere in the video, Molly-Mae admitted she has been "struggling massively" with her body image after giving birth to Bambi. The former reality star has previously been open about her feelings towards her body and in her new update she said: "I am struggling massively with my body at the minute.

"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 then vowed to try to walk a couple of thousand steps a day as she gets back into exercising.
