Molly-Mae hits out at negative comments after she’s mum-shamed online: ‘I don't need to justify it’

Molly-Mae Hague has called out nasty trolls after she was accused of not spending enough time with her eight-month-old daughter.

The former Love Island star, who welcomed Bambi with fiancé Tommy Fury in February, was mum-shamed online when commenters questioned the fact they didn’t see her ‘rushing’ around like an ordinary mother would.

In her latest vlog, Hague, 24, explained that not only does she film when Bambi goes to bed, but most of the time spent with her daughter is away from the cameras.

Calling out the negative commentary, the beauty entrepreneur shared: “I'll be honest, guys, I've been filming a lot in the evenings recently because that's when Bambi goes to bed.

“I also film in the daytime when I have help with her, when I have childcare. No matter what that childcare is, whether it's nursery, whether it's help at home, I choose to film when I am in my working hours ... when I have help with Bambi.”

Continuing: “I'm not afraid to say that ... when I'm in my mum mode – I mean me and Bambi together, just me and her in the house and I have no other set of hands – that's not when you're gonna find me vlogging.

“I'll be honest, I will normally be vlogging with you guys and I will normally be picking up my camera when I have time by myself, because that's when it feels most natural.”

Hague added that it “doesn't feel natural” to show her daughter online and insisted that she doesn’t need to “justify” her decision either.

She shared: “I want to be just focusing on her. I think I've actually realised recently as well that I share a lot less than I probably anticipated than I would share of Bambi."

“I definitely don't put her online as much as I thought I naturally probably would. It doesn't really feel that natural to me ... I don't think, ‘I'm going to vlog Bambi now', it doesn't really work like that.

“I pick up the camera either when she's in bed or when I have a second pair of hands to help me with her so that I can do things like this.

"I personally don't to do it when it is my time with Bambi, if that makes sense. And I know I don't need to justify that and I know I don't need to explain that because it doesn't really matter.

“And I shouldn't even put my time and thought into it.”
